The Aussie pro runner has certainly a lot to boast about this year. Jack Rayner has racked up a swag of wins in Australia’s top half marathons and Sinead Diver, who also ran an impressive win at Sydney Harbour this month, continues to prove that she is an ultra running force to be reckoned with.
Damian O'Conner is an ultra runner who has a thing or two for the challenge of tackling the country's finest trail and fell routes. He's been dubbed the "Mr Pennine Way" by the running community for his record breaking exploits along this rugged trail.
It's easy to see why. As an avid runner he has seen it all and done it all. It is this plethora of experience that has given him the confidence to try new things, which he describes in the book as "the best thing about being an outdoor runner".
A well crafted and evocative narrative, The Aussie pro runner is a must read for anyone with a penchant for the outdoors. It will not only inspire you to put on your running shoes but it will make you question everything you thought you knew about the sport. The book is a must have on every Aussie trail and ultra runners bookshelf, and the best part is that you can dip in and out as the mood takes you.
