What does it take to chase down a lifelong dream, even after you’ve failed three times?
with a Foreword by Bart Yasso, Chief Running Officer, Runner's World
Long Road to Boston combines the history of the world’s most coveted marathon with the personal journey of one ordinary runner who seeks to fulfill his ultimate amateur athletic goal. Tracing back to the marathon’s roots in Greek mythology and sharing the stories of the many colourful and inspiring characters who have crossed Boston’s finish line, the book explores why modern runners challenge themselves with such ambitious goals and revels in the reward of a persistent dream achieved.

"This book captures exactly why Boston is the most prestigious and most cherished race on the planet."
