“I became a runner by accident,” Katie Arnold writes in her wrenching, exhilarating memoir RUNNING HOME. Katie’s first race was a local 10k at age seven, which she and her sister entered on a spontaneous whim of their father’s. They came in dead last, but it didn’t matter. In those painful, breathless hours, she had discovered a powerful force within herself and realized that “Suffering and perseverance were their own rewards. They could make me stronger. They could make all the tricky bits of life seem easier.”

Katie carried this sense of adventure and physicality into adulthood, where she worked at Outside Magazine, reporting on extreme athletes who walked gravity-taunting high lines and ran a hundred miles at night and often joined them in these feats. (She ran her first marathon by accident while interviewing someone.) She and her husband were determined to raise their young daughters with this same sense of wildness and freedom.
