"If you are a runner, this book is a must have." The 27th Mile (not to mention "The Long Haul") gets some Oregon Live love. And likes it. A lot.

So very cool this. Terrific book. Terrific cause. And quite lovely for The 27th Mile to not only get some love, but for "The Long Haul" by TBWCYL, Inc. spokesperson Ben Tanzer get singled-out. Word. Excerpt? Cool.

"The stories are not Boston specific either, another personal favorite of mine are the stories contributed by Ben Tanzer, specifically "The Long Haul". Tanzer talks about the realization that real life got in the way and his long run was getting slower, and he talks about the day he finally realizes he could get faster, that he was not trying hard enough. He takes you through one trip on that long haul as he gets his speed and time back. As a mid-pack runner who has gone through some of her own issues with real life, I love how he puts his life in perspective and uses runners around him on that run to push him faster."
