Description

New York Times Best Seller 

A world-class runner and four-time Olympian shares the life lessons he’s learned from each of the 26 marathons he’s run in his storied career. 

“An athlete whose wisdom and lessons aren’t just for runners.” (The Washington Post

When Meb Keflezighi - the first person in history to win both the Boston and New York City marathons as well as an Olympic marathon medal - ran his final marathon in New York City on November 5, 2017, it marked the end of an extraordinary distance-running career. 

Meb's last marathon was also his 26th, and each of those marathons has come with its own unique challenges, rewards, and outcomes. In 26 Marathons, Meb takes listeners on those legendary races, along every hill, bend, and unexpected turn of events that made each marathon an exceptional learning experience, and a fascinating story. 

26 Marathons offers the wisdom Meb has gleaned about life, family, identity, and faith in addition to tips about running, training, and nutrition. He shows runners of all levels how to apply the lessons he's learned to their own running and lives. Equal parts inspiration and practical advice, 26 Marathons provides an inside look at the life and success of one of the greatest runners living today. 

Praise for 26 Marathons

26 Marathons is a swift read, guaranteed to be popular with student athletes plus hard-core and recreational runners, who will undoubtedly agree that Meb is an American treasure and running ambassador who never fails to inspire.” (Booklist, starred review) 

26 Marathons gives great insight about the ups and downs in marathon running and how to cope with them. As Meb shows, dealing with these marathon experiences help us become better in our lives.” (Eliud Kipchoge, Marathon World Record Holder and 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist) 

“Meb’s 26 Marathons is like opening a treasure chest full of inspiring stories that give behind-the-scenes glimpse into the mental and physical joys and obstacles that elite-level racing can bring. His advice on training, overcoming injuries, and adversity is for everyone. It’s pure gold!” (Shalane Flanagan, 2017 TCS NYC Marathon Champion)

Critiques

26 Marathons is a fantastic book. It tells the story of Meb Keflezighi’s career by documenting his marathons, but it’s not really about running. It’s about life! About setting goals and pursuing them, and how to continue to strive to excel in the midst of satisfaction and disappointments. Meb drives home the fact that winning in life isn’t defined by coming in first place. This book is not just for runners. It will help you no matter what your passion in life might be.” (Tony Dungy, Super Bowl Winning Coach, NFL Hall of Famer, and New York Times best-selling author)

One of the Best I've Ever Experienced

You do not have to be a runner to enjoy this book. The lessons Meb imparts transcend racing and running and apply to life writ large. As for the running and racing aspect, the journey is well worth it. I found myself cheering Meb on through each twist and turn, despite knowing the results ahead of time. I cringed and agonized with him as he stumbled along the way.

The emotional journey Meb takes you on in this book is incredible. It was hard to NOT get emotional along the way. I literally welled up and cried tears of joy for his Boston triumph.

The words in this book inspired me, not just as an amateur (at best) runner, but as a person.

Go Meb! Thank you!

Another Great Book by Meb!

This book is a fantastic recount of Meb's personal triumphs & challenges leading up to, during, and after each marathon to the next. I loved listening to the detail that was going on in his head during each marathon and where he got confidence along the way.

I've listened to probably at least two dozen running related books over the years, and for the love - WHY is it so difficult for narrators to pronounce; Eliud Kipchoge & Joe Vigil?? If they are not 100% sure how to pronounce a name, why do they not just ask either the author, (in this case, Meb), or somebody that knows something about running? It is so annoying to listen to audiobooks when the narrator clearly doesn't know a pair of running shoes from a pair of stilettos. This is why I took 1 star away on the Overall rating.

Pure Meb

Great idea for a marathon book - 26 stories and lessons. You learn something about Meb and running from each chapter. He is a the real deal for American runners. Motivated, talented and truly nice man. We can all learn something from Meb and not necessarily limited to running. He has faced a lot of challenges and seems to have come through neither cynical or jaded. Hope he writes more books so I can listen while running.

Too much about injury

Love Meb, but overdone on injury after injury. Had to stop listening as it became demotivating.

Great Human Story

Enjoy the story because it made me rethink why and how to run and why and how to be more respectful of my accomplishments.
