My First 100 Marathons: 2,620 Miles with an Obsessive Runner
Jeffrey Horowitz didnít expect to fall in love with marathoning, but thatís just what happened. He had never run a race, was not on his high school track team, and had never owned a pair of running shoes. Then, in 1985, he went out for a run and it changed his life. Eighteen years later he completed his one-hundredth marathon. This book is Jeffís story, but it is also the story of everyone who loves to run. It includes his training, his injuries, his best times, his joys, his friends, his failures. In some ways, itís an unusual story. How many other runners have finished 100 marathons? In other ways, it is the story of every runner who has found joy and satisfaction in a training routine, in reaching a goal, or in finishing a race.

Excellent, read it through from start to finish in one sitting. I'm running my first marathon in a bit under three months, and this very inspirational. Especially since I'd eventually like to try "marathon tourism" as an excuse to get to places I've not yet seen. Read full review
