This book summarizes 101 reasons why we love running so much. Author Tyler Moore hopes this book serves as extra inspiration and motivation to meet and exceed running and racing goals. For beginner runners, or people that don't run as often as they should, maybe these reasons can be a wake-up call to be more active.

Captain (Ret) Tyler Moore is the author of 101 Reasons to Love Running, an inspirational and motivational book for runners of all ages, beginner runners, and lifelong runners.

Tyler enlisted the United States Air Force as an airman and retired as a captain after twenty-three years of service. He specialized in Communications and Intelligence, Information Technology, Satellite Networks, Plans and Programs, Equal Opportunity (EO), Logistics, and Academic Operations. His tours of duty include the Middle East, Korea, the Philippines, Maryland, New Mexico, Virginia, and Washington, DC. He has served as a Detachment Commander, Watch Officer, EO Director, and Deputy Operations Chief. In addition to the Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute and Squadron Officer School, he has completed the Basic and Advanced Communications Officer Training School and Joint Information Operations School.

Originally from Birmingham, AL, Tyler relocated to the Triangle in 2013 after retiring from active duty in Washington, DC. He graduated from the University of Maryland University College with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and has an MBA from Grantham University. He currently lives in Garner, and works at Siemens Healthcare.

Tyler began writing nonfiction, and later published his first novel in 2008, a collection of letters from students called Dear Captain Moore: Letters to a Service Member in the Middle East. From 2007-2009, Tyler served as a guest columnist in Cannon Connections, the base newspaper at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico.

As a lifelong runner and three-time marathoner, Tyler has written two books about running. His first book was The Power Within: A Spiritual Guide for Runners (2010), a book that contains Biblical passages and scriptures and their relation to running, races, perseverance, and victory.
