Running is Flying: Best-loved Sayings, Aphorisms, Wisdom, and Quips for Runners (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Every runner hits a wall of discouragement and fatigue at some point in his or her training, whether it arrives at Mile 20 of a marathon or Mile 1 of a 5-K. When that wall comes, nothing inspires athletes to push past it more effectively than wisdom from someone who's been there. Paul Richardson, a lifelong runner with hundreds of miles logged, culls his observations into delightful quips, aphorisms, and meditations to motivate and boost the confidence of runners everywhere. "Running Is Flying" breathes fresh life into notions common to runners. It is well known, for example, that both feet are frequently fully off the ground when running; Richardson makes the imaginative leap from running to flight. His inventive way of looking at the sport promises to amuse and inspire, offering runners insightful witticisms about the sport that will resonate on runs both long and short. Sleek and modern illustrations lend a beautiful visual element to the book, making it the perfect gift to satisfy the steady appetite of running-book buyers.

Supported and spearheaded by the experts at "Runner's World", who understand the runner's marketplace better than anyone on earth, this book will remind runners of everything they love about running, as well as introduce them to new and imaginative ways of considering the sport.
