Read kindle Nowhere Near First: Ultramarathon Adventures from the Back of the Pack (Audio Download): Cory Reese, Cory Reese, Cory Reese: Audible AudiobooksAuthor Cory Reese –

Lovely, positive, uplifting and modest A gentle and heartfelt glimpse into the world of ultra running Slightly worried about Cory s diet though This book is a collection of relatively short vignettes about the author s life and experience with long distance running There are 29 chapters and each one kind of stands alone as a separate story Some of these chapters are poignant and powerful accounts of love and loss But most of the chapters are just race diaries filled with humorous quips It is entertaining, but in the end, it s mostly empty calories, kind of like the author s diet.When I purchased the book, I failed to notice that it is self published And that s where the books flaws arise The book needed a professional copy editor to catch all the spelling mistakes and poorly constructed sentences The author has the potential to be the Dave Barry of ultrarunning stories, but the writing needs some polishing. A regular guy doing amazing things The book gives you an insight into what is required to run longggg distances Really enjoyed it and bought his 2nd book before finishing this one Brought to life some fantastic runs.. What stood out for me is the lovely supportive relationship Cory and his wife have It s super important to have the ones you love be positive and allow the space for their partner to grow, fall, stand up and grow some.The fact that it took Cory years, circulating between a yearn to run, failing, quitting, then yearning again before he developed his mojo around running eventually ultra running, is an awesome feat of persistence What stood out for me was his wife never put him down, nor did she discourage him to give up, tease him about his previous unsuccessful attempts.This book was an enjoyable read. Long before Cory Reese strapped on his first pair of running shoes, he learned the key to being a successful ultrarunner He knew how to suffer In Nowhere Near First, Cory shares his deeply personal story about experiencing his father s suicide at a young age, and how this led to a career in endurance running and a desire to live life to the fullest Nowhere Near First is a humorous, captivating, and uplifting account of Cory s memorable ultramarathon experiences Not only does Cory s entertaining and powerful writing allows listeners a unique perspective into the challenges and rewards of running, but it also inspires each of us to turn tragedy into triumph Cory Reese writes with humor, humbleness and honesty His story is both uplifting and real, and his tales of persistence and perseverance are sure to inspire, whether you re at the front of the pack or nowhere near first Regardless of the title, this book s a winner Dean Karnazes, author of Ultramarathon Man Confessions of an All Night Runner Cory Reese s book, Nowhere Near First, is an immensely entertaining and profoundly educational story about overcoming challenges to forge a meaningful life Reese s story is must read for people looking to find meaning and purpose in modern day society Karl Hoagland, publisher, UltraRunning Magazine Cory has penned a very personal account of overcoming hardship in his personal and athletic life Nowhere Near First tells his story of perseverance and survival in a vivid, down and dirty way that peaks with his extraordinarily positive way of looking at life Marshall Ulrich, author of Running On Empty An Ultramarathoner s Story of Love, Loss, and a Record Setting Run Across America One of the best books I have read in years Cory manages to weave the reader into his life story with highly personable and down to earth manner None of the you can do this too BS, yet after reading this book it is highly impossible for one not to feel inspired and motivated to take action Certainly got me back into running after 5 years hanging up my shoes A must read for those like me who don t have a competitive bone yet love running.
