Summary, etc.: Built on the success of her popular blog on, Kristin Armstrong's new book is an intensely personal look at how running creates a special sense of community for the women who participate, and how it has helped her and many others mark the milestones of their lives. Each of the 26 chapters (the .2 is the epilogue) is dedicated to a specific theme, such as friendship, gratitude, healing, balance, and motherhood. The specific experience of running is knitted into each chapter, but the real messages about inspiration, growth, family, empowerment, and endurance are universal. Mile Markers details the essence of Armstrong's belief that running is a valuable source of connection, life, and health for all the women who love it.
