  • Incomplete Book of Running af Peter Sagal Spar 24%
    af Peter Sagal

    Peter Sagal, the host of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and a popular columnist for Runner's World, shares ';commentary and reflection about running with a deeply felt personal story, this book is winning, smart, honest, and affecting. Whether you are a runner or not, it will move you' (Susan Orlean).On the verge of turning forty, Peter Sagalbrainiac Harvard grad, short bald Jew with a disposition towards heft, and a sedentary star of public radiostarted running seriously. And much to his own surprise, he kept going, faster and further, running fourteen marathons and logging tens of thousands of miles on roads, sidewalks, paths, and trails all over the United States and the world, including the 2013 Boston Marathon, where he crossed the finish line moments before the bombings. In The Incomplete Book of Running, Sagal reflects on the trails, tracks, and routes he's traveled, from the humorous absurdity of running charity races in his underwearin St. Louis, in Februaryor attempting to ';quiet his colon' on runs around his neighborhoodto the experience of running as a guide to visually impaired runners, and the triumphant post-bombing running of the Boston Marathon in 2014. With humor and humanity, Sagal also writes about the emotional experience of running, body image, the similarities between endurance sports and sadomasochism, the legacy of running as passed down from parent to child, and the odd but extraordinary bonds created between strangers and friends. The result is ';a brilliant book about runningWhat Peter runs toward is strength, understanding, endurance, acceptance, faith, hope, and charity' (P.J. O'Rourke).

  • Ultrakvinderne - Om seje kvinder og ekstreme løb af Mette Birk Jensen
    af Mette Birk Jensen

    Få et unikt indblik i, hvad der får mennesker til at løbe i dagevis i ufremkommelige bjergområder, 100 km på et stadium eller 5.649 gange rundt om en boligblok i New York. Hvor det tidligere var en præstation af de helt store at løbe et maraton, stiger ultraløbet i dag eksplosivt i popularitet. Ultraløb er alt over maratonnets 42 km og kræver en helt særlig form for motivation, styrke og udholdenhed – både fysisk og mentalt. Der er i dag stort set ingen grænser for sværhedsgraden. Der er traditionelt færre kvinder end mænd, der løber ultraløb, men antallet er stigende.Journalist Mette Birk Jensen tager os med på sin personlige rejse ind i ultraløbsverdenen, hvor hun møder nogle af verdens sejeste ultrakvinder, som presser sig selv til grænsen for, hvad der er menneskeligt muligt. Og lidt til. I en række farverige portrætter deler de hudløst ærligt ud af deres oplevelser og erfaringer. Hvad driver dem? Hvad får de ud af det, og hvilke råd, kan de give videre? Mød Kristina, som løb 1.841 km alene gennem Iran; Gitte, som tre gange vendte tilbage til Sahara for at løbe 250 kilometer med sin proviant på ryggen; og Molly, som løb 222 km i Himalayas ilttynde luftlag.

    ';Sagal has created a new genrethe five-minute-mile memoir. Combining commentary and reflection about running with a deeply felt personal story, this book is winning, smart, honest, and affecting. Whether you are a runner or not, it will move you.' Susan Orlean In the midpoint of life, I found myself lost, in a dark place. So I tried to figure out exactly how many miles I had run to get there...So begins The Incomplete Book of Running, a funny, wise, and powerful meditation about running and life from Peter Sagal, longtime columnist for Runner's World and the host of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, that shares stories, advice, and warnings he's learned over his long and checkered career on the pavement. Just before turning forty, Sagalbrainiac Harvard grad, short bald Jew with a disposition toward heft, and sedentary star of public radio who had exercised sporadically as a teenagerstarted running seriously. A decade later, what began as a simple mission to keep himself healthy had evolved into fourteen marathon finishesincluding one in Boston in 2013, where he crossed the line only moments before two bombs went offand tens of thousands of miles on roads, sidewalks, paths, and trails all over the United States and the world. Running was an important part of his life, but it wasn't until he experienced a personal crisis that he realized it had become a mode of survival. In these pages, Sagal writes with humor and insight about the moments that have changed the way he sees the relationship between life and sportfrom running a charity race in his underwear (in St. Louis, in February) and attempting to ';quiet his colon' while taking a lap in his neighborhood to volunteering as a guide for visually impaired runners, causing a scandal by sneaking onto a course midrace, and making his triumphant post-bombing return to Boston in 2014. He also dives deep into the emotional experience of running, body image, the similarities between endurance sports and sadomasochism, the legacy of the sport as passed down from parent and child, and the odd but extraordinary bonds created among strangers and friends sharing the road. As time goes on and his mileage increases, he realizes that the only way to overcome obstacles is simply to keep running through them. Candid, clear-eyed, and frequently hilarious, The Incomplete Book of Running is about more than just a man and a sport. It is a field guide to life, a collection of lessons centered around all those things that keep us moving forward: hope, persistence, practice, and love.
