I’m running to forget, and to remember. For more than a decade, Katie Arnold chased adventure around the world, reporting on extreme athletes who performed outlandish feats—walking high lines a thousand feet off the ground without a harness, or running one hundred miles through the night. She wrote her stories by living them, until eventually life on the thin edge of risk began to seem normal. After she married, Katie and her husband vowed to raise their daughters to be adventurous, too, in the mountains and canyons of New Mexico. But when her father died of cancer, she was forced to confront her own mortality. His death was cataclysmic, unleashing a perfect storm of grief and anxiety. She and her father, an enigmatic photographer for National Geographic, had always been kindred spirits. He introduced her to the outdoors and took her camping and on bicycle trips and down rivers, and taught her to find solace and courage in the natural world. And it was he who encouraged her to run her first race when she was seven years old. Now nearly paralyzed by fear and terrified she was dying, too, she turned to the thing that had always made her feel most alive: running. Over the course of three tumultuous years, she ran alone through the wilderness, logging longer and longer distances, first a 50-kilometer ultramarathon, then 50 miles, then 100 kilometers. She ran to heal her grief, to outpace her worry that she wouldn’t live to raise her own daughters. She ran to find strength in her weakness. She ran to remember and to forget. She ran to live. Ultrarunning tests the limits of human endurance over seemingly inhuman distances, and as she clocked miles across mesas and mountains, Katie learned to tolerate pain and discomfort, and face her fears of uncertainty, vulnerability, and even death itself. As she ran, she found herself peeling back the layers of her relationship with her father, discovering that much of what she thought she knew about him, and her own past, was wrong. Running Home is a memoir about the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of our world—the stories that hold us back, and the ones that set us free. Mesmerizing, transcendent, and deeply exhilarating, it is a book for anyone who has been knocked over by life, or feels the pull of something bigger and wilder within themselves. Advance praise for Running Home “A contemplative, soul-searching account of the death of [Katie Arnold’s] beloved father and how she used long-distance running as a way to heal from the grief.”— Kirkus Reviews “A beautiful work of searching remembrance and searing honesty . . . will soon join such classics as Born to Run and Ultramarathon Man as quintessential reading of the genre.”—Hampton Sides, author of On Desperate Ground and Ghost Soldiers

    Who knew you could just run away from your problems, get a runner's high, take on massive amounts of mileage, and all would be well with the world?

However, with Katie she simply laced up and took it all on and as long as she made progress than it was worthwhile cause. I've never ran extremely long distance. In fact I've always been a mid level runner a few miles never over 25, 50, 100. So hats off to her but for me this was not quite what I had hoped and fell somewhat short. While her family, her father's cancer scares, and the issue with her own achievements were meaningful to her the reader wasn't really pulled in with the writing. However, you may feel differently as variety is the spice of life. I hope you enjoy. Thank you to Katie, the publisher, NetGalley, and Amazon Kindle for this ARC in exchange for this honest review.

I love memoir, for example, The World According to Fannie Davis: My Mother's Life in the Detroit N by Bridgett M. Davis , now THAT was a fantastic memoir. Maybe it's just me. But everyone's parents die at some point, and yes, it is devastating. And yes, there are ultramarathoners, and that's an interesting thing to read about. But I just found the book boring. The only thing that interested me is that she lived in Washington DC in the early 70's, when I was in DC at Georgetown. I love that place and loved reading the little Washington tidbits. Otherwise, I've got too many other books to read. Onwards. Thank you to Random House for an early look at this book. This review will be posted on NetGalley, Goodreads and Amazon.

    DNFed at 39%. I couldn't really figure out what the focus was meant to be. I wanted more running and less father dying/motherhood/mortality.

    I expected this book to be a memoir about ultra running and yes, there is a lot of running in Katie Arnold’s Running Home—but this is really a book about life; running is just Arnold’s way of processing and coming to terms with, as she puts it, “the jolting, destablizing shocks” of her own life. Running may give Arnold’s book its energy and organizing theme, but her clear, beautifully candid reflections on death, doubt, fear and grief give it a beating heart.

Running may give Arnold’s book its energy and organizing theme, but her clear, beautifully candid reflections on death, doubt, fear and grief give it a beating heart. The memoir is loosely organized in two parts. The first chronicles Arnold’s childhood and life before she made the leap to ultrarunning: her earliest memories of the breakdown of her parents’ marriage and her years of shuttling between their homes in New Jersey and rural Virginia with her older sister; her conflicted but loving relationship with her father, the spirit of adventure she inherited from him, and then his sudden cancer diagnosis and death; and the crippling bouts of postpartum anxiety and grief that followed. “There is never any end to the fears,” she writes. “The trick is to move toward them, not away. Running is as good a way as any to try.” Armed with this resolve, Arnold shifts the second part of Running Home to her pursuit of ultrarunning—her physical and mental training for the grueling 50k, 50 mile, 100k amd 100 mile distances and the toll this takes on her body, her marriage and her family. This part of the book—and particularly Arnold’s riveting accounts of her first 50k race and her Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim run—was fascinating to me (whose idea of a long run is five miles) and gave me insight into what it takes to push your mind and body to their absolute limits. It’s worth noting here as well that, as you might expect from a former editor and writer at Outside magazine, there is beautiful nature writing throughout Running Home, but particularly so in this part of the book, when Arnold describes the scenery on her long mountain training runs. Running Home is a book that will be relatable and appealing to so many people—runners, of course, but also children of divorce; those who have fought their own battles with anxiety; mothers trying to balance work and family life with their own passions; and those who have experienced the death of a loved one. (I lost my own beloved father to cancer the same year as Katie, and her descriptions of her grief were among the most viscerally relatable I’ve ever read.) The publisher’s blurb likened Running Home to Helen Macdonald’s H is for Hawk but, while I understand that comparison, it reminded me more of Hope Jahren’s memoir Lab Girl. I loved them all, though, so I’m happy to let it go at that. Many thanks to Random House and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

But as the book progresses, there is plenty of running. There is also a great deal of introspection. The book is beautifully written. Arnold has a true gift for writing and storytelling. This is a beautiful read.

    I won’t rehash what Running Home is about as the book description from the publisher’s page gives you all you need to know and more. After reading the description of Running Home by Katie Arnold, you instinctually what is meant by, “I’m running to forget and remember.” The loss of someone we love throws everything about our life off balance, and mainly if it’s a parent or a parent that had abandoned you as a child. Everyone grieve’s differently, just as everyone experiences a myriad of emotions, I won’t rehash what Running Home is about as the book description from the publisher’s page gives you all you need to know and more. After reading the description of Running Home by Katie Arnold, you instinctually what is meant by, “I’m running to forget and remember.” The loss of someone we love throws everything about our life off balance, and mainly if it’s a parent or a parent that had abandoned you as a child. Everyone grieve’s differently, just as everyone experiences a myriad of emotions, whether it’s anger, regret, despair, depression, anxiety, acceptance, forgiveness, etc.. The litany of emotions suffered when we lose someone we had a connection to is as long as the list of ways in which each of us makes it through our grief. In Arnold’s case it was going from jogger to running an ultramarathon, and to be clear Arnold is not recruiting running as a means of grieving the loss of a loved one. Running Home is a memoir, and if you read the author’s bio, you know from the beginning that Arnold is an outdoorswoman, and as she has written for the magazine Runner’s World, we know she is a runner. Her description of becoming a long distance runner that led to her running an ultramarathon and the pain, endurance, and difficulties of running may not be grasped by those who are not runners and have no interest in learning about the sport of running. In this case, the reader may hop their way through Running Home and miss the authentic emotions Katie writes of following her father’s death, but also the feelings from her childhood that centered around the relationship she had with her father. An author that can write about emotions so distinctly that we feel the sentiment, which is a talent that is not effortless for all writers. This is a strength that Arnold has, whether she is writing about her feelings of abandonment by her father as a child, her feelings and emotions as an adult, her love for her father, her feelings upon learning of his terminal illness, followed by his death. I applaud Arnold for her ability to hit the mark when writing about her emotions that come through strongly, whether as a child or a mother of two. The other thing Arnold does exceptionally well as a writer is sharing her childhood memories while simultaneously incorporating her feelings during the events of her childhood in a way that holds you captive. I am sure that many in the world can relate to the point of feeling the emotions of a childhood akin to Arnold’s youth, and her life.

    Can’t believe how many high ratings Goodreads reviewers have given this book. Very disappointing from someone who loves memoirs and loves running. First third of book had me interested but then author falls apart (in her life) and her writing style falls apart. I expect an ultra runner to be a self absorbed type and Katie Arnold is way self absorbed. Her grieving over her Dad leave her mother (hardly spoken about at all even though she raised her), her husband, and her two daughters in the dust.

The last 100 pages were hard to gut through as it was like reading her running logs! I expect Arnold is a better journalist than this memoir would represent and believe her Editors could have helped shape this into something more readable. Her aimlessness in life and lack of appreciation for her gifts and blessings make me wish she would find Christ in her life (not Buddhist runners!?). If you want a good memoir- this is not one. If you want a good book on running- this is not one. Arnold may be better suited for magazine articles in Outside magazine. One of her daughters might write a good memoir about their life and how their pouty/self centered Mother effected their lives once they look back.

In fact, Ms. Arnold doesn't even really begin to touch on running until about halfway through the book. Instead, the book follows Ms. Arnold as she works through her emotions following her parent's divorce, her own post partum depression, and ultimately her father's death. At several moments while reading, I felt like I was looking into a mirror as Ms. Arnold hashed through her feelings of self-worth and fear of all the 5 million things that could possibly go wrong at any given moment. Oh yes! This is me! So while I finished the book only a couple steps closer to the idea of running an ultra, I felt much closer to the idea of giving myself credit for who I am. Isn't that the best gift a book can give you? Thank you to NetGalley and Random House for providing this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I won this book on Goodreads. This book is a two part memoir written by author Katie Arnold about the death of her father and the struggles before and after his passing and about the author's extreme sport ultra running. I marvel at the tenacity of what it takes to keep on running and I admire the author and the other people who choose to participate in this sport, through all the injuries, fatigue, and determination to complete the race courses. She even wants to continue to be active even when I won this book on Goodreads.

She even wants to continue to be active even when her doctor recommended to her to take it easy and just rest until she is better. One statement the author put into her book that piqued my curiosity is about the Marathon Monks of Mount Hiei. I want to do some more research on this and will read author John Stevens book on it. It really sounds interesting.

As a former runner, it was interesting to get a glimpse inside of her mind as she honed her "craft". I understand that running is the way she reconciled her grief, but it almost feels like this could have been two separate books - one on childhood and grief, and one on running. I'd still highly recommend this memoir, and will encourage friends to read it.

    I am not a runner. Heck, I struggle to get in 6000 steps a day. But I loved this book. What I shared with Arnold is a complicated relationship with my father that required a great deal of processing as he died. And the intense internal dialog that takes place as a mother goes about balancing her own needs with those of her children and husband. The second half of the book was more about running, and I found it less riveting than the first half. But in both parts, Arnold's language, especially wh I am not a runner.

    I'm not a runner but I found this memoir fascinating. Arnold used running to work through her grief at the loss of her father who had played such an important role in her life. Overcoming her paralysis in the aftermath meant taking the first step, which then became almost an obsession. Arnold becomes an ultra marathoner, an astonishing subset of athlete, through sheer will. Her determination is impressive, as is her writing. Thanks to net galley for the ARC. This is a story about a father and a I'm not a runner but I found this memoir fascinating.

    There are great parts and not so great parts of this book. When she focused on running, she captures the pure joy of the sport better than anyone. The mystery of ultra marathon runners was unlocked for me. It gives full reign to the mystery of grief, and when she shows running as a part of healing, it’s utterly absorbing. She lost me several times with the many strands of opinions she had, and for a bit it got stranger and stranger.

    I picked up this book because a Facebook friend recommended it. This is a memoir of a woman trying to balance being a mother and wife with her passion for running, all while dealing with the death of her father, and confronting their complicated relationship. I very much enjoyed the book, but could have used less about the visits to the psychics/ healers and more about how Katie and her husband handled balancing the huge time commitment of the running with the demands of family.

    Maybe 3 1/2 stars for me. I heard the author on a podcast and was charmed by her story. The full book however is uneven. Some of the writing is lovely; much of it is long-winded and swirly. However she is so consumed by her relationship with her father and by his death to the neglect of everyone else in her life, I got really tired of hearing about him. I would have liked to hear more about the ultra-running, beyond how it seemed to be suspiciously easy for her.

    This book started out well. I liked the first third of it a lot. And then it felt like the reading equivalent of an ultra marathon. I finished because of the Goodreads goal, if not for that I would've left it at the halfway mark. As another reviewer said, this was boring. It was also repetitive. I realize I love to run but don't need to read about other's runs and races. Pages and pages about races and mileage. Thank goodness it's over, where was the editor?

    I loved this book. I started it thinking it was a runner’s memoir, but instead found that it was an excellent commentary on grief, living, dying, mothering, loving, finding peace and the drive to run. I related so much to Katie’s story of running to deal with the grief of losing her father. Through running, she gained clarity to tell her story of healing and coming to terms with loss. Very well-written and engaging.

    Hard to start your summer reading list with a book this good, because everything I read going forward might pale in comparison. Beautiful story, and Arnold is clearly a gifted writer. This book makes me want to be a better writer, and contemplate running an ultramarathon again some day (I'd sworn off them for good, I thought).

    This memoir combines the author's experience of becoming an ultra marathoner with reflections on her relationship with her father, who left the family when the author was 2. Katie Arnold is an excellent writer, though most readers would shake their heads at the insanity of running 50+ miles per race.
