Politics of the collegiate track world and his own aspirations to become the best miler ever we get an unprecedented behind the scenes view of the life of one of the nation's most promising track athletes with a new chapter describing the latest developments in Webb's fascinating career. Intriguing story imperfect execution My expectations weren t too high this wasn t recommended to me but I saw it on a shelf in a running store and figured what the heck since I d followed Webb since his high school days in Northern Virginia Rodale Press books in my experience as a general rule aren t necessarily the best edited and this was no exception Conversely they fill a niche that the large publishing houses freuently ignore so I can put up with their imperfections My biggest criticisms 1 the author failed utterly to disappear from the narration without offering any compelling reason why he should have been part of the story or why the reader should care about him and 2 the author failed to get particularly close or in depth with the runner the coach the former coach the runner s colleaguesfriends or the runner s family all of whom seem well situated to have added significant depth to what ultimately is all too often superficial coverage Still overall an interesting snapshot of Webb s young career

    Similar to 'Running with the Buffalo' Chris Lear does an excellent job of capturing a runner's experience in the sport Reading how talented Alan was and how he still experienced similar thoughts that I had during my running career especially in college was reassuring to know that regardless of the level of talent we all w
