100 Marathons

100 Marathons

Rather than slaking my thirst for racing, each marathon left me wanting more. I
knew that I could simply keep running and racing, but that alone wouldn't be
enough. I had entered my first marathon because I needed a goal to focus my
training.

“I’d always been the kind of person who hated half steps; once I found a passion for something, I wanted to dive into the deep end of it.” Jeffrey has run over 150 marathons in six continents, completing more than 3,930 miles. This book tells the story of the one hundred races in his first eighteen years of marathoning: his training, injuries, triumphs, and failures. He admits that runners are a little bit crazy, submitting themselves to intense physical pain and constant self-doubt, but explains the rewards of satisfaction and joy at the end of a long race that are well worth the process. He also includes running tips on everything from strength training to race recovery for those who want to start or are already running. This memoir is not just for runners, but for anyone who appreciates any grueling experience that transforms the body and mind. It captures the sheer joy of physical exertion, the ups and downs of training, and the exhilaration of finishing a marathon so well, everyone will be inspired to lace up their running shoes.

This is a running book like no other. The stories are those of an unremarkable man who sleptwalked into what transpired to be a series of remarkable running adventures around the world as he completed 100 marathons. Adventures which traversed highs and lows, from glorious ultramarathon victories and befriending natives to ignominious withdrawals and encounters with the local constabulary in three different countries. In short, the stuff of a mother's nightmares, but a bar room dream. As the title implies, this book might not be one for the running purists, but it hopefully shows that even long distance running can be pursued without unduly sacrificing less wholesome aspects of life. It is a book primarily intended to make the reader smile and persuade them to run a little (for the non-runners) or a little more (for the runners).

I have run one hundred marathons. I am the first Australian female to do so. I want to share my experiences with you. I want you to see what it has been like to compete in more than seventy locations all over the world, including many in Australia, over a thirteen year period. More people have climbed Mount Everest or swum the English Channel than have run a hundred marathons. It has been a major achievement to run this big distance, under race conditions, over and over again. Yet I am not blessed with a special athletic talent. I did not play sports as a child. I came into running relatively late in life and ran my first marathon the year I turned forty.
