Having read this book it makes me want to run the New York City Marathon soon The story captures the 2007 race mile by mile exploring different runners at different times in their lifes the level f hardships the good the bad and the extraordinaire It also gives an interesting insight To Fell a Tree: A Complete Guide to Successful Tree Felling and Woodcutting Methods on New York Road Runners Team and their journeyn how NYC Marathon became the Best and the Biggest Marathon in the world There is a lot We Came All the Way from Cuba So You Could Dress Like This?: Stories of interesting historical stuff everything about Marathons runners background and things about their lives associations competitions etc boring at times however the writing is fluid and the storyline is engaging It is always fascinating to know what motivates different runners to run a Marathon This isne Extreme Caution of the things I will take away from this book As good a book as you could write about the New York City Marathon Robbins covers the course mile by mile tracking a varietyf runners along the way She goes into detail about the histories and personalities The Christian's ABC: Catechisms and Catechizing in England C. 1530-1740 of the male and female elite runners profiles several amateurs with inspirational stories and even goes into the crowds to get a behind the scenes look at somef the spectators musicians and volunteers that line the course The history The Irregulars: Roald Dahl and the British Spy Ring in Wartime Washington of the race is also covered extensively but in a sortf meandering way that I think makes it interesting than a simple straightforward 30 page block Can I Tell You about Nystagmus?: A Guide for Friends, Family and Professionals of text would beI think this is a must read for anyone who has run NYCr plans to Whether you read it first to get an idea The Art of Thinking Clearly of what to expect and to psych yourself up for the racer read it after finishing to reminisce about your run I feel this is a valuable addition to the experience And even if you never want to run a marathon this is a great New York story I actually listened to this The Evil and the Innocent onen audio twice The first time it ended and I realized it had gone so fast I must have been distracted and missed some But in listening again I realized I didn t really miss anything and yet it entertained me all the same I have always wanted to run this race long before ever becoming a runner I had applied for the lottery this year didn t get in unfortunately and had been reading this to psyche myself up even The author breaks each chapter into the number mile The Maid and the Billionaire Prince of the race Some chapters focusn the history The Three Sevens of the marathon somen that specific location some The Dicshitnary on the volunteers and spectatorsn the course some Setlife: A Guide to Getting a Job in Film (and Keeping It) on the livesf the amateur runners and some Nightsong on the livesf the professionals Everyone has a different but awe inspiring experience in running this marathon I thought it was put together smartly Some The Uses of Abundance: A History of New Jersey's Economy of the personal stories did get a little long whereas mostf the people reading this would be interested in the running aspect Her Halloween Costume...His Halloween Fantasy (X-Ops of it However that might also make this book relatable and I retesting for in runners Overall a very enjoyable read listen I started reading this book while training for the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon to help me get in the mindset build excitement and mentally prepare for the grueling NYC course The book follows several runners some elite professionals andthers who are like me average people looking to finish for Wolf's Embrace one reasonr another as they make their way through the 262 mile course Each chapter covers a mile and tells a bit Solstice Day Gifts of the storyf each runner It s an interesting way to detail the marathon though some Decadence of the backstories especiallyn the elite runners went a little long I would rather have had stories f the people who are part f the marathon the regulars who stand Get It How You Live on street corners hold up signs have run several consecutive NYC marathonsr who were first timers I also was really annoyed by a couple f falsehoods early n in the book The author perpetuates the urban marathon myth that runners Atan on the lower levelf the Verrazano Bridge risk getting sprayed with urine when those n the upper level pee ff the top I ve run the top and I ve run the bottom and I ve seen neither pee ers nor been sprayed In fact you risk an early D disualification if you re caught peeing n the bridge Can we Please Put That One To Rest AlreadyI Really Don T put that ne to rest alreadyI really don t this book would hold any appeal to anyone who has notisn t planning to run NYC I don t even know that it would appeal all that much to the regular runner it s very NYC focused But if you are going to tackle the marathon this is definitely a worthwhile read to help understand the course even if some Barbara of the references are a bit dated and get yourself mentally ready to conuer it Wow This book has always beenn my bucket list semi alongside actually running the marathon and I picked this up just about a month before this year s marathon my first I had wanted to finish it before race day but in the end I took too long and finished about 3 weeks after I m glad I finished after I ran the race actually because it allowed me to appreciate the stories in a different way I was able to flash back to certain moments especially during the last stretch Palimpsest of the race and remember exactly how I felt as I read the words describing this partf the course The style Sutra Ungu : Panduan Berhubungan Intim dalam Perspektif Islam of writing isn t what I m typically drawn to and is what took me longer to plow through but it s undeniable how impactful and moving the individual runners are and it s all the intensified when juxtaposed with the elite athlete competitions recounted here as well I found myself becoming emotional at certain points especially before race day as I related to manyf the feelings these runners felt I also enjoyed using this book as a course preview though sadly I wasn t great at remembering details while I was Simon on the course myself Ultimately this was an amazing companion as race day approached an immensely meaningful moment for me I t was incredible to see that I wasn t close to being alone in that feeling as hundredsf runners felt the same way This race is bigger than me bigger than the elites and bigger than any single individual And it s that enormity that helps make it so incredibly special to so many people This book helped capture that feeling and elevated my already heightened emotions surrounding this special day Even though non Marathon runners may not feel as strongly as I did Diário a Rum or relate to this book in the same way I would still recommend this to anyone who is an athlete hasvercome large Ancestor Paths obstacles in their lifer who
