This book is not about breaking records and winning medals. It is
about the joys and experience of running for fun at home and in
It illustrates how it is possible to run big city marathons over the
weekend and on a limited budget and still meet the locals and take in
some of the sights. It is also about the fun in running local events
in all weathers.
I have commented on my personal training program and how it has
changed over the years.
The book is part biographical and I have not hesitated to give my
thoughts and reflections on issues that include: war, national traits,
diet, lifestyle and much else. May I apologize in advance if any of
the views expressed in this book offends the reader- challenging
perhaps but not intended to cause offence.
It is hoped the book inspires others to join the marathon trail and
see where it takes them.
