Have you ever considered how reading can complement your training? There are the books that help you relax and unwind, perfect for getting lost in a day of recovery. Or there are the ones that help you build mental fortitude, teach you about grit and overcoming obstacles, and sit in the back of your mind when you’re in the hard miles of the race. And then there are the books that connect you to inspirational people and provide insight into how they have accomplished so much.

Well, we want to read all those books. With you. 

Which is why we started the Women’s Running Book Club, open to Active Pass and Women’s Running Pass Members. By signing up for the club you’ll get access to:

  • Interviews with the author.
  • Access to our private Facebook group to connect with other bookworms. 
  • An opportunity to win some free books. 

Summer 2021 Book Club: Survive and Advance

Our next book club pick is sprinter and long-jumper Tianna Bartoletta’s new book Survive and Advance. In her memoir, released June 8, the three-time Olympic gold medalist shares her whole life story, from getting started in high school track to the abuse she was dealt behind-the-scenes of some of her greatest athletic performances. You might be familiar with parts of Bartoletta’s story from her blog. This is the full story.
