by Amby Burfoot




Overview -
"One of the five best books on running."--Benjamin H. Cheever, Runner's World Magazine. Boston Marathon winner Amby Burfoot, one of running's wisest voices, presents 15 life lessons about passion, courage, materialism, failure, and regeneration, all learned during his more than 35 years of experience in running.

Here Amby Burfoot discusses a runner's essential traits--qualities necessary for everyone striving to reach a long-term goal--as well as the writing, music, and quotes that have continually inspired him.
