Thirty-Three Years of Running in Circles
Rand Mintzer woke up one day and realized that he was morbidly obese, barely passing his college classes, and without any real goals. Inspired by the memory of a television movie and encouraged by a college roommate, he started running and turned his life around. That was more than thirty years ago, and he's been running ever since-even finishing a marathon. Whether you are battling a weight problem or already consider yourself a runner, you will be motivated by his personal story of redemption. "Every runner's story is at once unique and cut from a common cloth. Rand Mintzer's story is filled with heartwarming lessons and goals reached while saturated with logical and practical advice from which every new runner can benefit. Essentially two books in one, Thirty-Three Years of Running in Circles runs from the inspiring personal to the logical and essential practical while covering everything in between." -Rich Benyo, editor, Marathon and Beyond magazine.
