Scott Parker is the Minnesota author in the spotlight here on Booksnob for the month of July and he has graciously offered to giveaway 3 copies of his memoir to followers who live in the U.S. or Canada. Contest ends July 31st at midnight.
Here is the synopsis of Running After Prefontaine from Amazon:
Like so many young runners in Oregon, Scott Parker came of age under the spell of the Prefontaine legend, which inspired his early understanding of running's purpose as being centered around discipline and will power. In Running After Prefontaine, Parker traces his running back to its roots in Northeast Portland and follows it forward in time as his relationship with running evolves to include a more nuanced approach to the sport. Whether he's literally running in Pre's footsteps in Coos Bay or Eugene, running on the beaches of Asia, or running himself past exhaustion in Portland's Forest Park, Parker is an astute narrator of the running experience. This intimate book, which connects running to the author's process of self-becoming, demonstrates how what we do makes us who we are.
