Book Review: Runners’ Cookbook

Posted by Filed Under: Charity & Fundraising, Nutrition

runnerscookbookcover.jpgAlison Wade, a staple author and editor of the running community, has put together a collection of recipes from some of the sports most well-known athletes. Aside from the novelty of being able to make Dick Beardsley’s French Toast or Josh Cox’s Green Enchiladas is the knowledge that purchasing one of these cookbooks is contributing to some pretty worthy causes. All proceeds from the sale of the book go toward the Ryan Shay Memorial Fund and the Jenny Crain “Make It Happen” fund.

Here’s what Alison has to say about the book:

The Runner’s Cookbook features 100 recipes from 90+ contributors, including Joan Benoit Samuelson, Sebastian Coe, Shalane Flanagan, Adam and Kara Goucher, Ryan and Sara Hall, Deena Kastor, Craig Mottram, Dathan Ritzenhein, Khadevis Robinson, Alan Webb, and many others. All of the proceeds from the sales of this book will be
donated to the Ryan Shay Memorial Fund and the Jenny Crain “Make It Happen” Fund.

About Jeff Smith

Initially running to escape his two younger sisters, Jeff has been running as far back as he can remember. Through high school, the Marines and Super Hero Training School, Jeff kept at the left-right-left right but without focus. In 1999 he stepped up to the challenge of organizing a running group, began informal coaching and applied some goals to his own running. Now with several respectable distances and times under his belt, he spends most of his time running for the pure joy of it, encouraging other runners to tap into their potential, saving kittens stranded in trees and helping the elderly cross the street.

    I have been a lover of cooking for many years now and, for that simple fact, I am frequently trying to discover new recipes, whether it is from magazines, the Internet or cookbooks. This one seems like a good acquisition to make for runners and non-runners alike, considering that it has 100 recipes from several contributors.
