“I’d always been the kind of person who hated half steps; once I found a passion for something, I wanted to dive into the deep end of it.” Jeffrey has run over 150 marathons in six continents, completing more than 3,930 miles. This book tells the story of the one hundred races in his first eighteen years of marathoning: his training, injuries, triumphs, and failures. He admits that runners are a little bit crazy, submitting themselves to intense physical pain and constant self-doubt, but explains the rewards of satisfaction and joy at the end of a long race that are well worth the process. He also includes running tips on everything from strength training to race recovery for those who want to start or are already running.

This memoir is not just for runners, but for anyone who appreciates any grueling experience that transforms the body and mind. It captures the sheer joy of physical exertion, the ups and downs of training, and the exhilaration of finishing a marathon so well, everyone will be inspired to lace up their running shoes.

Jeffrey Horowitz is a certified running and triathlon coach and a personal trainer who has run more than 150 marathons across six continents. Formerly an attorney, he quit law with the support of his family to pursue his passion for endurance sports. Jeff now works with the Washington, DC, Triathlon; the Nation’s Triathlon; the free triathlon summer camp ACHIEVE Kids Triathlon; and Team Hope, a charity fund-raising training group that benefits the Hope Connections Center, a cancer services organization. He is also the author of Smart Marathon Training: Run Your Best Without Running Yourself Ragged.
