But whether comical or serious, the quotes contained here represent the finest writing and wisdom on running. Geared towards everyone from the long-distance enthusiast to the relative or friend of one, the musings collected are poignant, sentimental, and amazing. 1,001 Pearls of Runners’ Wisdom covers a wide swath of topics, ranging from training to coaching to marathons to shoes to diet, and even barefoot or natural running, a new trend inspired by Christopher McDougall’s national bestseller, Born to Run. "I started the Boston Marathon as a 20-year-old girl, and came out the other end a grown woman." —Kathrine Switzer "It has been said that the love of the chase is an inherent delight in man—a relic of an instinctive passion." —Charles Darwin "A lot of people run a race to see who's the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts." —Steve Prefontaine "Don’t worry, everyone slows over time." —Bill Rodgers "There's nary an animal alive that can outrun a greased Scotsman." —Groundskeeper Willy, from The Simpsons "Speed is sex ... distance is love." —David Blaike, Canadian ultrarunner "Gazelles run when they’re pregnant. Why should it be any different for women??" —Joan Ullyot, M.D. "I’m afraid the reason so many new runners quit is because they never get past the point of feeling like they have to run." —John Bingham "Run softly by imagining a helium balloon attached to your head." —Lieutenant Colonel (Dr.) Dan Kuland, U.S. Air Force Chief of Health Promotion "Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going." —Jim Ryun "They were the lightest shoes I could find." —Ron Hill, elite British long-distance runner, on why he ran barefoot "People [say to] me after a race, 'I get so many blisters from shoes, if I run barefoot, it’s going to be worse.' And I say, 'Well that’s why I stopped wearing shoes because I got tired of getting blisters.'" —Ken Bob Saxton, aka “Barefoot Ken Bob,” has run 76 marathons, 75 of them shoeless, since 1997 "The mile has all the elements of drama." —Roger Bannister "Anything worth doing is going to be difficult." —Fauja Singh, 100 years old, after finishing the 2011 Toronto Marathon in 8:25 "One cannot run away from his behind." —African proverb

With over 3,000 pieces of wit and wisdom from runners famous and humble, here is an important running resource and a great gift for any runner. George Sheehan, a celebrated running writer, philosopher, and physician, once wrote, "The more I run, the more certain I am that I am heading for my real goal: to become the person I am." Today, many runners—whether they are training for the Olympics or whether they fit runs into their lunch hours—would agree that for them the sport is much more than a way to stay in shape. Their running defines who they are and leads them to achieve goals that they might never have thought possible. This tremendous collection of wisdom captures the spirit and passion of those who run in over 3,000 entries, covering topics such as training, gear, running philosophy, and running in youth and old age. The Gigantic Book of Running Wisdom will inspire everyone from seasoned marathoners to running novices. It includes thoughts from famous athletes, writers, politicians, and more, including Percy Cerutty, Carl Lewis, Tom Brokaw, David Letterman, William Shakespeare, Farrah Fawcett, Emil Zátopek, Bill Rodgers, Friedrich Nietzsche, Sebastian Coe, Bill Clinton, Grete Waitz, Roger Bannister, and hundreds of others. The one thing they all have in common is their understanding that, as Amby Burfoot put it, "As we run, we become." 16 b/w illustrations. "You have to forget your last marathon before you try another. Your mind can't know what's coming."—Frank Shorter "I love the feeling of freedom in running, the fresh air, the feeling that the only person I'm competing with is me."—Wilma Rudolph Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.

Life Is a Marathon Running promotes healthy living. Running marathons is a worldwide phenomenon. More and more people are training for and completing the ultimate running distance, 26.2 miles or 42 kilometers in a day, while they are still standing, alive, coherent, and in need of no medical attention. Running marathons requires careful preparation, planning, and execution. The runner needs a lot of patience and internal mental fortitude to do well. Many principles of running apply to those of living a committed Christian life. In living a Christian life, you need the assurance that Jesus loves you. Christ living in you transforms your life. Living a Christian life requires patience, endurance, and discipline. Both Christians and runners experience highs and lows, as well as expected and unexpected turns of events. Sometimes the road is lonely and wearying, but it ultimately ends in inexpressible joy to those who find themselves at the finish line to receive their reward. However, while running may yield temporal and perishable rewards, living a Christian life brings eternal and everlasting rewards. Life Is a Marathon contains information that may transform your life.
