Synopsis

With an exuberant mix of passion insight instruction and humor best-selling authorand lifelong runnerMartin Dugard takes a journey through the world of running to illustrate how the sport helps us fulfill that universal desire to be the best possible version of ourselves each and every time we lace up our shoes. To Be a Runner represents a new way to write about running by bridging the chasm between the two categories of running books: how-to and personal narrative. Spinning colorful yarns of his running and racing adventures on six continentsfrom competing in the infamous Raid Gauloises to coaching his sons high school cross-country teamDugard considers what it means to truly integrate the activity into ones life. For example how the simple act of buying a new pair of running shoes can be a source of meaning and hope. As entertaining as it is provocative To Be a Runner is about far more than running: It is about life and how we should live it.
