Book review: 26.2 Marathon Stories

03/03/2010

Got this good book as a late Christmas pressie from Tezza.  And i loved reading and looking at the photos.  If you had experienced running a marathon, this is a very recommended book that reminds you of the hardwork you’ve gone through.

Quotable qoutes: I started running at age 72 because I was tired of all boring talk about funerals – Ruth Rothfarb who ran a marathon at age 81 I did the marathon because everone said I couldn’t – Jean Driscoll (eight-time wheel  chair winner of the Boston marathon) If you want to run, run a mile.  If you want to experience another life, run a marathon – Emil Zapotek There are only three winners: The onewho competes with homself, the one who crosses the finish line first and the one who finishes the race – Sri Chinmoy

Content:  Lots of inpsiring quotes, wonderful photo-book
