      Practice mindfulness by separating fact from attitude. Figure out what thoughts & emotions prevent you from running. Figure out why you are attached to those thoughts & emotions. Negative attachments to an idea are a choice. Figure out what you can do to get rid of the attachments and just accept the facts. Obstacles arise from within.Knowing and acting on knowledge are two different things. Don't let a harmful attachment control your mind and actions. Prioritize commitments, deadlines & [...]

      I've had a hard time motivating myself to get myself up and run when I wake up. I was going to force myself to run this morning but yesterday a callus formed on my toe that made walking painful. I opted not to run so I could hopefully let the callus heal. The first chapter deals with motivating yourself to run. I will definitely be utilizing some of these techniques.I have been training to run faster as I am very unhappy with 15 minute mile. There are tools in this book that will help you train [...]

      I always am motivated when I read a good running book. Most of the book will help me, especially if I'm tired & still have further to go in the run. Shapiro still didn't convince me, however,to run outside on a dark, cold rainy morning. I can't dismiss it as being what it is & just run anyway. Its still cold & wet & unpleasant.

      This book is not perfect, but I think I can give it partial credit for the fact that I consider myself a runner now. I have my first 5K coming up next month and while I've tried to start running before, I believe I always had the wrong mindset going in - this book definitely helped in that regard.

      If you like running and reading about running it's hard to understand why you wouldn't like this book.

      6am in the fall, in New England, is dark, and cold. I get out of my warm bed, just a couple stretches and some juice, and out the door quickly I keep my mind focused on the *feeling* - ignore the cold, ignore the rain, the traffic, just feel My feet know the route, I can run it in the dark my feet know every dip in the sidewalk, every curb, where the tree roots cross my path. When I hit mile 2 the sky begins to turn rose coloured and all I feel is peace, and I'm happy to be out and, yep, happy t [...]

      Meh. Got it as a Nook deal of the day thing, so I think I paid 99c for it. It was worth about that.It seemed mostly a collection of obvious statements. I guess if you've truly never thought about Buddhism/zen/meditation/whatever concepts before *and* you've never thought about running before, you could get things out of this book, buten why are you picking up the book? I'm not even a practitioner of Buddhism; I've just read enough to read this and go "yep, yep, yup, okay, yup, skimming now." Tha [...]

      La prima metà del libro mi ha lasciato parecchio deluso.zioncine e consigli veramente troppo basici ed elementari, adatti forse a motivare chi a stento si alza dal letto, non certo adatti a chi, a mio avviso, acquista un libro dal titolo "lo zen e l'arte della corsa" con aspettative di un certo livellopo metà libro invece il testo si fa più interessante, pur restando in superficie sia nell'ambito zen che in quello podistico, è in grado di suscitare curiosità sui temi trattati e in un certo [...]

      I tried to read this book straight through, but came to realize that it's more of a reference book that I'll go to when I need it. For example, I loved the "Zen Motivation: Getting Out the Door" section since I often need an extra push to convince myself to go running when it's dark and I'm tired from working all day. However, I gave myself permission to just browse about half the book (the racing, injury, and aging sections) since it didn't pertain to my life right now. I enjoyed reading about [...]

      The book promises a bit more than it delivers, or at least it creates expectations that it can't quite meet. I'd have liked to read more about zen then about running. At times, it feels like Shapiro ran out of things to say about zen and instead started writing a running guide. Other books do that better, this book should have staid closer to the zen side of things. There are some good parts, like the meditation exercises and how to meditate during a run, but that part felt a bit too short and s [...]

      For an author who has gained his PHD in philosophy Larry Shapiro's Zen and the Art of Running reads like an average fifth grade essay assignment; complete with tips on how to double tie your shoelaces. On the other hand, could his writing style actually reflect the true spirit of Zen? Simplicity after all is synonymous with both practices. Zen and the Art of Running is either a brilliant handbook for a contemplative approach to running or a professors bored attempt at reaching the 200 page goal [...]

      I really enjoyed reading this book. I have read many books on running but this was the first about the mental part of it. Shapiro does a good job of explaining how to apply Zen to your life in general and running in particular. It is easy to apply some of these but it takes a lifetime to master.I do wonder about the simplicity of "Zen teaches us ." I don't know if Zen is as monolithic as that.The running advice is a big simple. Don't read this as your first running book but if you want to learn [...]

      I like the idea of mindfulness and right effort while running. The practice of meditation has also helped me find moments in my day to just breathe. The authors examples are often flat and difficult to relate to and the book is written almost like a high-school project, but taken with a grain salt this book is useful and my first zen run was very pleasant. I'm one who can talk myself out if nearly anything so using zen principles helped me stick to the run and not count down the seconds until it [...]

      An excellent book explaining the fundamental concepts of zen through the activity of running. Using simple and clear examples, the author shows how to use the power of mindfulness, right effort and the middle way to look at the reality in a different light, objectively and free from personal attachments.

    • Greg said:

      I learned more about Zen Buddhism than I did running. It's kind of an introduction to Buddhist thought presented as a runner's guide. There's certainly a lot of practical application for runners but it's more about how you think about running than how you actually do it.

    • Arpan said:
      Oct 17, 2018 - 05:54 AM

      Motivational, yet at times you may feel like it opens more questions than answers. A good book that can make you, think, reflect and focus on what's important in your life. Being in the present is its main philosophy.

    • Npescatrice said:
      Oct 17, 2018 - 05:54 AM

      Easy introduction to the ideas of Zen. The correlation of mindfulness, right effort, meditation, and The Middle Way to running was clever. It's always nice to read something that makes you think about something in a new way. I enjoyed applying the new approach to running.

    • Colleen said:

      I hope I can try and use some of these techniques to my running and also the Zen attitude and beliefs to my everyday life and relationships. This book, I feel, is for hardcore runners, even though he does add in some novice acknowledgements as well.

      This book was just okay. A lot of the scenarios the author discussed I could not relate too.

      Una introduzione allo zen con la scusa della corsa, o un'introduzione alla corsa con la scusa dello zen. In ogni caso, nulla di imperdibile.

      Tyyliltään sellainen, ettei tarkoituskaan ole lukea kerralla vaan tarttua kirjaan eri tilanteissa. Yrittäessä lukea putkeen, kirja toistaa itseään ja on tylsähkö.

      This would serve as a lukewarm introduction to a runner curious about Zen, or a Buddhist thinking about running, but for someone who is already a runner/buddhist, this book has nothing to offer.

    • Jennie said:

      Pretty good, overall, though I will admit to skipping the sections on training and racing, as I currently run for the sheer enjoyment of it. I'll hold on to the book, though, should that ever change.
