Personal stories of making the mara-thon a part of your life.
This companion volume to First Marathons will inform, inspire, and educate any runner who wants to try the marathon, or wants to run several marathons a year. It picks up where that fast-selling book left off: it follows up with the 37 people profiled there, to see how their marathoning life has progressed since their first race. And it includes some 20 new first-marathon stories, as well as the stories of runners tackling their second or third marathon, and making the marathon an integral part of their lives.These stories are lively first-person essays, oral history on the subject of running marathons. Far more valuable than dry how-to books, this is powerful, heartfelt human experience.
A sequel volume to First Marathons, on making the marathon part of your life.
