Hello! How are you? I’m over here just running and eating and listening to audiobooks while doing both. Okay, not while eating because I like to hear myself chew.
Anyway… today I’m sharing my favorite Audiobooks for Runners. I started using Audible over a year ago – it’s an audio library that works on your phone or laptop. I’m completely obsessed with it. This is the PERFECT option for runners or walkers who want to get lost in a book, be entertained, learn something or just switch it up while exercising.
These are my favorite running books. Some of them I read before I discovered Audible, some of them are the reason I fell in love with audiobooks!
The BEST Audiobooks on Running
Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand (this was made into a movie!)
Run to Overcome by Meb Keflezighi and Dick Patrick
Born to Run by Christopher McDougall
How Bad Do You Want It by Matt Fitzgerald (I just started listening to this one!)
Chi Running by Danny Dreyer
My Life on the Run by Bart Yasso is my next book to listen to – I am a huge fan of Yasso and think he has super helpful and ‘real’ advice
Fast Girl by Suzy Favor Hamilton – not a running book but a book about a runner that was a Las Vegas escort after her professional running career. I think I mentioned this one when I was listening to it last year.
If you aren’t into running books I have to give an honorable mention to the following books that have been super fun to listen to while running…
Non-Running Book Suggestions:
Wild by Cheryl Strayed (made into a great movie with Reese Witherspoon!)
Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
Amy Schumer’s first book that I just finished and both of Andy Cohen’s books. I am a huge fan of Amy Schumer and really liked her audiobook since she read it.
Right now I’m listening to Adnan’s Story. Anyone else??!
FREE 30 Day Trial of Audible for RER Readers
When Audible contacted me to share this free trial with my readers I jumped on it. They offered me a free trial too but I said “I don’t need it! I’ve been a subscriber for over a year!”
I’m really excited because I am already a fan and now you can check it out and see if it’s your jam too.
Tell me if you sign up and what book you choose. I’m always looking for audiobook suggestions – running or non-running. I also like true crime stuff, so suggestions along those lines work too!
Right now Audible is offering Run Eat Repeat readers a FREE 30 Day Trial! Check it out here.
Question: What was the last book you read or listened to?
