The personal stories of members of the 100 Marathon Club—ordinary people linked by the common desire to run, and run, and run
The 100 Marathon Club, also known as the Hell's Angels of Running, or Running Sluts (running one race while thinking of another), is growing in number every year. This is a club with no prejudices and only one prerequisite for membership—the completion of 100 marathons. It is full of colorful, contrasting characters with idiosyncratic personalities and diverse lifestyles. But who would want to run 100 marathons or more, and why? How do they find the time, the the money, and the energy? Are they crazy or just passionate? Here are their stories—funny, sad, and inspiring. This book will appeal to the millions of runners in the world, from the marathon-crazy featured in this book to just casual joggers.
