Inhaltsangabe: Out-of-shape and hammered more often than not, Russell Taylor, nearing 40, begins training for the NYC marathon as something of a midlife crisis. His journey from the treadmill in North London to the mountains of Wales to the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway illuminates the meaning of the egalitarian race, the only sport where any weekend jogger can run with world-class champions. For everyone who has contemplated running the marathon or watched from the sidelines feeling an uneasy mix of envy and gratitude, this comical and inspiring account will change their understanding of the legendary race.
Vom Verlag: In his months of inconsistent training leading up to the event inspired by a battle in 4th century B.C., Russell Taylor brings us:
Inspiring words of encouragement
" ‘Only nine miles to go,’ I find myself thinking. This wrenches me out of my reverie. Since when has the prefix "only" ever been applied to the predicate "nine miles" unless one is traveling in a jet aircraft?"
"One man is running backwards. Please God, don’t let him beat me."
Empirically validated revisions to age-old coaching techniques
"I am already starting to appreciate the inverse relationship that exists between alcoholic intake and successful visits to the gym the next morning. I know that I should give up booze. . .[but] stopping drinking all at once would give as big a shock to my system as trying to run 26.2 miles straight off."
