Anthropologist Jasmina Praprotnik met Helena Zigon while running. Over the course of an icy Slovenian winter, the two marathon runners got together frequently, and Zigon told Praprotnik about her life. Here, Praprotnik tells Zigon's captivating story in Zigon's own voice. Each chapter is marked by a kilometer of the half-marathon Zigon ran along the Adriatic Sea on her eighty-sixth birthday, shortly after losing her husband of sixty years, Stane. Zigon's life spanned most of the twentieth century. She witnessed the Second World War, the rise and fall of Yugoslavia, and the founding of the new state of Slovenia. Abandoned by her parents and having grown up poor and mistreated by her stepmother, Zigon demonstrates the stoic resilience of a long-suffering Slavic woman. Though beset with challenges, she found a source of strength in the act of running. From a young girl running errands to an old woman running in the face of new grief, running has been a bright thread braided throughout her life. It has served her as a balm and a joy—one that she is grateful to still be able to savor. This inspirational memoir will appeal to general readers, especially those interested in history and running.

How Running Changed My Life

THE POWER OF RUNNING. Every runner knows this, and marvels at it, and finds it hard to wholly describe: Running will change your life. These four dozen essays capture the power of running to change and shape our existence, to elevate us, to inspire and strengthen us in all our pursuits. They were selected for the fine quality of their writing, the emotional strength of the stories, and for their narrative drama. Collectively they are motivational, inspirational, and instructive, thus making a fascinating book for dewy beginners and grizzled veterans alike. In this book are personal tales of running to quit drinking or drugs, to escape a bad marriage, to lose weight, running out grief, developing self-esteem, running for the sheer joy of it. A daughter finally bonds with her distant father when she wins a local race. A man diagnosed with a tumor in his lung runs his way back to health. A teenage girl living in a crack-infested neighborhood of the Bronx takes up running and finds her strength, and a good side of life. One man, viciously attacked on a remote beach in Africa and bleeding profusely, runs miles to safety, saving his own life. One woman’s story tells us, "Everything I need to know I learned from cross-country running." A Pakistani man, as an orphaned child, was introduced to running by a kind teacher—and went on to become a national caliber marathoner. They are all here—every type of runner, and running in all its physical and spiritual glory. This is a book to inspire anyone to go run, and love every miserable, glorious second of it. Garth Battista is the editor of The Runner’s Literary Companion.

Running is hard work, yes. But it should also be fun and exhilarating. At its best, it recaptures the joy we experienced before running was recast as punishment or penance, when we would sprint out of the shadows in a darkened cul-de-sac to kick a can, chase someone on the playground, or race our dog along the beach. While that joy can be easy to find (remember finishing your first 5k?), it can be monumentally difficult to sustain. Humor helps. The intent of Running is Flying--a collection of over 60 aphorisms, thoughts and meditations on the running life by Paul E. Richardson--is to provide encouragement, levity, and perspective to a sport that has a tendency to take itself a bit too seriously. Wonderfully illustrated by British artist Paul Cox, Running Is Flying makes a great gift for the runner in your life, even if that runner happens to be yourself.

Running through Life explores twenty-six different characteristics that speak to the emotions and thoughts of marathon runners. In each chapter, author Tommy Bresson explores a characteristic that relates specifically to a certain mile in the marathon or to training in general. Using stories from his own life and examples from the Bible, Bresson illustrates the importance of these characteristics--not just while running the marathon but in life itself. Whether you are training for your seventeenth marathon or just curious about the sport, you will enjoy and be encouraged by the lessons Bresson shares. As you gain a clearer picture of who God is and how his character is revealed through stories in the Bible, you will find yourself challenged to reflect on how these various characteristics manifest themselves in your own life.
