Ranging from marathons to one-milers, from the pristine glaciers of Antarctica to Vermont’s covered bridges, two-time Guinness World Record holder Puntillo offers practical and unique advice as only a woman who has run a marathon on every continent can. She shares her tips for the most desirable gear, snacks to carry in your backpack, how savvy runners get into events that are sold out months in advance, and the best local sights to take in on your downtime. Try the Great Wall Marathon, where you’ll climb 60,000 steps, crawl through ancient tower windows, and follow in the footsteps of ancient Chinese history. The Marathon du Médoc spoils you with wine every three miles at Bordeaux’s most elite châteaus and fresh-shucked oysters at mile 23. Or, if music is your thing and you long for a different rock band at every mile marker, head out to the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon series in locales across the United States. Whether you want to make those running dreams come true or simply be entertained, here are dozens of running adventures sure to get your heart pumping. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Running brings joy and health benefits to all participants, especially those of the baby boomer generation. But when legs get sore, joints feel achy, and old age creeps up, sometimes senior runners need a little extra motivation to get out of the door and on the road. In Running Past Fifty, lifelong runner Gail Waesche Kislevitz provides helpful tips and motivation from thirty-six runners aged fifty or older. Presenting time-tested recommendations, Kislevitz interviews some of the nation’s greatest senior runners. Included here are exclusive interviews with greats such as Ed Whitlock, who, at the age of eighty-five, set an age-division world record of 3:56 in the marathon; Bill Rodgers, winner of four Boston Marathons and four New York City Marathons; George Hirsch, chairman of New York Road Runners; Olympian and author Jeff Galloway; world record holder Sid Howard; and runner and women’s pioneer runner and advocate Kathrine Switzer And legendary runners aren’t the only ones running well into seniority. Kislevitz also offers motivational stories from average runners who hit the pavement frequently and refuse to let their age stop them from competing regularly. Baby boomer runners may be slower than they once were, but they show no signs of slowing down. Inspiring and insightful, Running Past Fifty is the perfect read for every one of them.
Pheidippides did it once and became a legend. Brian Mills did it 771 times... but you might be forgiven for not knowing who he is. He is a runner and 'it' is the marathon, all 26 miles and 385 yards of it, and for some people once is not enough. Brian Mills is rumoured to have a butterfly tattoo for each of his 771 efforts. And Brian is not the only who has notched up three digits of grueling athletic endeavor. The 100 Marathon Club, also known as the Hell's Angels of Running and Running Sluts (running one race whilst thinking of another) is growing in number every year. This is a club with no prejudices and only one prerequisite for membership - the completion of 100 marathons. It is full of colourful, contrasting characters with idiosyncratic personalities and diverse lifestyles. They make up a gargantuan melting pot of humanity linked by one common desire - to run... and run... and run. But who would want to run 100 marathons or more? And why? How do they find the time, the money, the energy? Are they crazy? Or just passionate? Find out by reading their stories. Some will make you laugh, others will make you cry, some may even inspire you to run a marathon. Believe it or not, these are ordinary, everyday people like you. Although when you have finished laughing and crying, you may still not be sure whether they are crazy or passionate. But you - as they do when they run - will have a lot of fun along the way.
An entertaining, eye-opening guide to what math and physics can reveal about sports. How can sprinter Usain Bolt break his world record without expending any additional effort? What dates of birth give rise to the best professional athletes? Is it better to have the inside or outside lane during a race? Drawing on vivid, real-life examples, mathematician John D. Barrow entertainingly explores the eye-opening, often counterintuitive, insights into the world of sports that math and physics can give us. For example, we learn that left-handed boxers have a statistical advantage over their right-handed opponents. Through clear, detailed, and fascinating mathematical explanations, Barrow reveals the best techniques and strategies for an incredible range of sports, from soccer and running to cycling, archery, gymnastics, and rowing.
The World Race is not your typical mission experience. For 11 months, participants abandon the luxuries of home and bid adieu to family and friends to join a squad of 50 to 60 fellow young adults and journey to 11 countries for the sole purpose of advancing the Kingdom of God. With only a 50-pound backpack, Racers live in 24/7 Christian community and learn what it really means to "consider everything a loss compared to the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus as Lord." Racers partner with local and longterm ministries overseas to serve as the hands and feet of Christ. During the year, Racers share the love of Jesus through orphan care, feeding the homeless, prostitute outreach, construction, praying over the lost, and door-to-door evangelism. God captivates Racers' hearts for his gospel as they see a world desperate for the hope and life that are in Christ Jesus.
