Wednesday is National Running Day, and in honor of that, I’m giving away a bunch of running (and walking) books.

Let me know what you’re interested in and post here, letting me know why you deserve it. Best answers win. I’ll pick winners in the next week or so.

Here’s what’s up for grabs:

  • “Marathons of the World,” by Hugh Jones and Alexander James.
  • “Eat & Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness,” by Scott Jurek.
  • “Marathon Man: My 26.2-Mile Journey from Unknown Grad Student to the Top of the Running World,” by Bill Rodgers and Matthew Shepatin.
  • “Walk Your Butt Off!” by Sarah Lorge Butler.
  • “Barefoot Walking: Free Your Feet to Minimize Impact, Maximize Efficiency, and Discover the Pleasure of Getting in Touch with the Earth,” by Michael Sandler and Jessica Lee.
  • “Belly Blasting Walk,” a DVD by Leslie Sansone.
