With over 3,000 pieces of wit and wisdom from runners famous and humble, here is an important running resource and a great gift for any runner. George Sheehan, a celebrated running writer, philosopher, and physician, once wrote, "The more I run, the more certain I am that I am heading for my real goal: to become the person I am." Today, many runners—whether they are training for the Olympics or whether they fit runs into their lunch hours—would agree that for them the sport is much more than a way to stay in shape. Their running defines who they are and leads them to achieve goals that they might never have thought possible. This tremendous collection of wisdom captures the spirit and passion of those who run in over 3,000 entries, covering topics such as training, gear, running philosophy, and running in youth and old age. The Gigantic Book of Running Wisdom will inspire everyone from seasoned marathoners to running novices. It includes thoughts from famous athletes, writers, politicians, and more, including Percy Cerutty, Carl Lewis, Tom Brokaw, David Letterman, William Shakespeare, Farrah Fawcett, Emil Zátopek, Bill Rodgers, Friedrich Nietzsche, Sebastian Coe, Bill Clinton, Grete Waitz, Roger Bannister, and hundreds of others. The one thing they all have in common is their understanding that, as Amby Burfoot put it, "As we run, we become." 16 b/w illustrations. "You have to forget your last marathon before you try another. Your mind can't know what's coming."—Frank Shorter "I love the feeling of freedom in running, the fresh air, the feeling that the only person I'm competing with is me."—Wilma Rudolph Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.

Wie weit würdest du gehen ... für die, die du liebst? Adrian J Walker hat mit ›Am Ende aller Zeiten‹ einen postapokalyptischen Roman geschrieben, in dem ein ganz normaler Familienvater vor die größte Herausforderung seines Lebens gestellt wird. Edgar Hill ist Mitte dreißig, und er hat sein Leben gründlich satt. Unzufrieden mit sich und seinem Alltag in Schottland als Angestellter, Familienvater und Eigenheimbesitzer, fragt er sich vor allem eins: Hat das alles irgendwann einmal ein Ende? Er ahnt nicht, dass sich die Katastrophe bereits anbahnt. Als das Ende kommt, kommt es von oben: Ein dramatischer Asteroidenschauer verwüstet die Britischen Inseln. Das Chaos ist gigantisch, die Katastrophe total. Ganze Städte werden ausgelöscht. Straßen, das Internet, die Zivilisation selbst gehören plötzlich der Vergangenheit an. England liegt in Schutt und Asche. Ist dies der Weltuntergang? Edgar und seine Familie werden während der Evakuierung voneinander getrennt, und ihm bleibt nur eine Wahl: Will er Frau und Kinder jemals wiedersehen, muss er 500 Meilen weit laufen, durch ein zerstörtes Land und über die verbrannte Erde, von Edinburgh nach Cornwall. Zusammen mit einigen wenigen Gefährten begibt sich Edgar Hill auf einen Ultra-Marathon durch ein sterbendes Land. Doch sein Weg ist gefährlich: Im postapokalyptischen England kämpft jeder gegen jeden ums blanke Überleben.

Turning her back on what is considered conventional, Makhosazana Xaba engages with her subject-matter on a revolutionary level in Running and Other Stories. She takes tradition - be that literary tradition, cultural tradition, gender tradition - and re-imagines it in a way that is liberating and innovative. Bracketed by Xaba's revisitings of Can Themba's influential short story, The Suit, the ten stories in this collection, while strongly independent, are in conversation with one another, resulting in a collection that can be devoured all at once or savoured slowly, story by story. By re-envisioning the ordinary and accepted, Xaba is creating a space in which women's voices are given a rebirth.

What happens when a woman and her husband move their family from New Hampshire to Alaska to train a team of purebred Siberian Huskies for the world's toughest dogsled race, the Yukon Quest? They endure thousands of miles of lonely training in the Yukon trying to avoid thin ice, wolves, and rogue moose; they put up with the amused skepticism of Alaskan locals; and they pit themselves against the ultimate, fickle adversary--nature. RUNNING NORTH is the true story of how Ann Cook, her husband, George, and their young daughter, Kathleen, moved to Alaska and how their Siberians became the first team from the lower forty-eight states to finish the Yukon Quest. It tracks George on his horrific journey through the Yukon, recording the frostbite, the hallucinations that come with exhaustion, the wolves, and the nights out on the ice at minus ninety degrees Fahrenheit. This is the great story of man struggling against nature and surviving. But unlike most accounts of high adventure that center solely on the adventurer and the quest, RUNNING NORTH is also the story of Ann Cook, who drove the truck and carried the gear and kept the family together. In the tradition of MY OLD MAN AND THE SEA, she tells both stories in simple, elegant prose that reveals the tragedy, joy, and folly that lie on either side of the curtain separating the adventurer from the world left behind. They run up against crazy landlords, win over gruff neighbors, drive a broken-down truck that sucks oil like Alaskans suck coffee, listen to a radio show that keeps trappers in contact with the world, meet mysterious fishermen who appear without notice and disappear without a sign, fight with a young cousin who will betray them in the end, protect their young daughter from the dangers of their new wild world, and stare awestruck at the wide sweep of Alaskan landscape. RUNNING NORTH is the story of two very different adventures on the edge: one among the racers braving the Yukon and the other among the people they leave behind.

It's 1838, and James has made a secret plan to escape Master Graham’s farm–and slavery. James tells his dog Zeus he has to stay behind: he’s simply too noisy to bring along on a dangerous nighttime journey. But when two white men capture James soon after he runs, he’s grateful his faithful hunting dog didn’t obey. Zeus has followed behind, and the scrappy hound rescues James from his captors. An author’s note describes the real life inspiration behind the book: James Smith, a slave who escaped with the help of his dog and went on to become a farmer and Baptist minister.

This guide helps runners at all levels, from absolute beginners to those training for marathon racing. The training plan is divided to match each runner's grade of fitness. Readers assess themselves by answering fitness questionnaires that guide them to the appropriate level of training. At the end of each training grade, another self-assessment questionnaire helps runners decide whether to move to a higher level or remain where they are. A ten-week program begins with alternating two-minute runs and walks, and gradually progresses to sustained runs of 30 minutes. Runners are advised to "listen to their bodies" and remain at a specific week's level until they feel comfortable about progressing to the next one. General topics include getting started, obtaining the right shoes and accessories, adhering to a runner's diet, developing self-motivation, and following a structured and progressive training program. A final section is focused to advise runners training for a marathon. More than 150 color photos and illustrations plus sidebar tips and quick-reference charts.

Warum scheitern so viele Startups und neue Produkte? Und wie kann man die Chancen deutlich erhohen, mit einer Innovation erfolgreich zu sein? Als Antwort auf diese Fragen hat Ash Maurya die in diesem Buch vorgestellte Methode entwickelt, die auf Strategien des Lean Management und der agilen Entwicklung aufbaut und speziell auf Innovationsprozesse zugeschnitten ist. Der Trick besteht darin, fruhzeitig, konsequent und in allen Projektphasen potenzielle Kunden in den Entwicklungsprozess einzubeziehen und das eigene Geschaftsmodell immer wieder zu hinterfragen. Ein entscheidendes Tool ist dabei die "Lean Canvas," ein Template, das eine einfache Visualisierung des Businessplans ermoglicht und erheblich einfacher zu erfassen und zu uberarbeiten ist als die ublichen, viele Seiten starken Konzeptpapiere. Ash Maurya hat die Methode anhand eigener Projekte entwickelt und erfolgreich getestet. In Running Lean erlautert er sie ganz praktisch mit Schritt-fur-Schritt-Anleitungen anhand eines konkreten Beispiels. Alle Schritte konnen einfach nachvollzogen und auf die eigenen Innovationsprojekte angewandt werden. Die Lean Canvas sowie die Fragebogen fur Kundeninterviews lassen sich direkt aus dem Buch ubernehmen. Ein Problem identifizieren, das viele Menschen umtreibt, und eine Losung dafur definieren. Die Kunden in den gesamten Entwicklungsprozess einbinden. Das Produkt / die Idee kontinuierlich testen, in immer kurzeren Iterationszyklen. Erkennen, wann die Marschrichtung geandert werden sollte. Entwicklungsgeschwindigkeit, Erkenntnisprozesse und Ausrichtung optimieren. Den idealen Zeitpunkt fur Finanzierungsrunden finden.
