Sporty books that lend their motivation?

I need a kick up the arse and a new hobby.

The three I was going to recommend have all been mentioned but +1 for Running with the Kenyans, Born to Run and Eat and Run.

Thanks for all of these, have read most but will seek some out from oii's list, am also keen to get my hands on the Ronhill book, I may be thoroughly modern and twitter them up to get an electronic copy released on the Kindle, can't get Paula's book electronically either. The Ghost Runner is another good one.

Just finished Keep on Running by Phil Hewitt. I wouldn't recommend it as I found it rather tedious.

Feet in the Clouds is probably the best book I've read on both running and obsession, just finished Ghost Runner which I enjoyed and currently reading Cant... by Ironholgs, which is good also. Another very good book is "What I think about when I think about Running" by Haruki Murakami, you can't tell if he's a writer who runs Marathons or a Runner who write books, but it's a really enjoyable read.
