In this year-long memoir, the celebrated historian Ian Mortimer considers the meaning of running as he approaches his fiftieth birthday. From injuries and frustrated ambitions to exhilaration and empathy, it is a personal and yet universal account of what running means to people, and how it helps everyone focus on what really matters.

Bertrams Buyer's Notes:

Comparable to a historian's version of Haruki Murakami's writerly }What I Talk About When I Talk About Running{, celebrated historian Ian Mortimer considers the meaning, significance and allure of running, reflecting on his own experiences of the sport across his fiftieth year.
