Ray Charbonneau is the author/editor of a number of running books.
That number is currently five. His work has also appeared in the Boston Globe, the Christian Science Monitor, Marathon & Beyond, and other publications.
“Ray Charbonneau is the finest unknown running writer in America. Hopefully the unknown part won’t last long. His understanding, insights and pure humor are not to be missed.”
Overthinking the Marathon is an intimate look at one man’s preparation for his 21st marathon. “Marathon running is the easy part. It’s the thinking that’s the challenging part for the long-distance runner.” –Dave Goodrich, the “Marathon Maine-iac” (Marathon Maniac #238)
“Reads as if someone was walking around a runner’s brain and explaining how it works, functions, thinks and survives. It’s as if he is telling you how last weekend went over a beer. Except last weekend was a 50 miler through mud and mountains in Vermont.” –PavementRunner
