Not yet rated | write a review
With 250 full-color photographs and a compelling narrative of running in all its forms throughout history, buttressed by quotations and brief biographies, this gorgeous book is the definitive story of running and its place in our world

An achievement of purity and simplicity, running takes no more than heart and lungs, will and spirit--and no less. There are no time-outs, no judges or teammates to help or blame. Just a starting line and finish line and, in between, the human body pushing forth, doing what it was born to do. This visually exciting, full-color book provides a compelling look at our oldest sport. And, because running is an activity in which many of us engage, the landscape of the book is rich beyond mere athletics, covering such subjects as:

. running in the human life cycle

. running throughout history

. the role of running in various cultures

. running equipment and fashion

. competition and unique races that test the limits of human endurance

Backed by the authority of Runner''s World magazine, the leading source of information about the sport, this stunning work will captivate everyone who runs--the fast and slow, the young and old. It will make a treasured gift: a volume to be displayed and savored.
