Product Description

Launched at the 2006 Boston Marathon, ’26.2 MARATHON STORIES’ (Rodale Press), was soon hailed by Runners World Magazine as one of the top five running books ever. This amazingly beautiful and substantial book is the first one co-authored by Kathrine Switzer and her husband Roger Robinson, noted running historian, raconteur and world-class runner. ( With lush and enticing color photos from races around the world, this book does more than lay on your coffee table with pride-it is the first to accurately give the marathon’s origins, and tell how an obscure activity grew to an event that changed the streets of major cities of the world…as well as all of our lives. (Unsure about a gift for the marathoner in your life? This is the book that covers it all, and beautifully.)
