Read full description of the books:
From an indifferent high school athlete, he rose to become one of history's greatest runners, the only man ever to win all three of the world's major marathons: Boston, New York and Fukuoka. His fantastic achievements and "unstructured approach" to running fascinated the sports world--and then they discovered the other side of Bill Rodgers: an outspoken critic of the sports management business in America.
Now in a new edition, updated to 1982, Bill Rodgers' Marathoning tells of a truly legendary career: his slow start as a high school runner, the emergence of his real talent, his approach to the marathons, how he runs, his invitation to the White House--plus his headline-making views on coaching, sportsmanship and the place of politics in athletics. And for avid watchers of the current running scene, this new edition includes a special chapter on the national debate over the paying of amateur runners in major marathons, and Rodgers' role in this controversy.
For sports fans, runners, and anyone interested in knowing the course this sport will take in the near future, Marathoning makes for refreshing and provocative reading.
Foreword by Amby Burfoot, winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon.
