Playing any kind of sports is healthy. I used to play basketball when I was a kid, and even a fan of NBA. Here are some books about sports and outdoor recreation.
1. Rumble Yell: Discovering America’s Biggest Bike Ride
The rollicking, true story of two men rekindling an old friendship after twenty years. Foolishly, they choose to reconnect over a hometown tradition that just happens to be the world’s biggest bike ride: RAGBRAI. 500 miles of biking during the hottest week of the year – humidity 100%, bugs 1000% – seemed like the ideal way to “get to know you” again. Their plans are waylaid by a last-minute addition: an outrageous, mysterious sailor named Cheek. His presence is not only intrusive, but utterly disastrous.
2. Starting Off On The Right Foot
No matter the sport, everyone has to start somewhere. The simple sport of running is no different. Running came natural to us as kids but for various reasons, many of us gave it up at some point.
In Starting Off on the Right Foot, best-selling author CJ Hitz (Smoothies For Runners) shares some of the valuable information he’s learned along the way since picking up running again in 2008. After running in the 1989 State Cross Country meet in Eugene, Oregon as a high school
sophomore, CJ gave up running for nearly 20 years before being drawn back into the sport.
