Read a review of Personal Record at the Story Circle Book Reviews, a website that features reviews of books by, for, and about women.
Rachel Toor answers ten questions on the blog, A Bold Pace.
Jenny Shank, reviewer for NewWest.net, writes: "Personal Record is a detailed, entertaining read that will appeal to Toor’s fellow marathoners and does a good job of conveying the intense subculture of long-distance running to those of us who trot at a more modest pace as we wonder about the lives of those skinny people in high-tech gear who pass us on the trails."
