Of history will amplify the present and provide insight into the neighborhoods and the people who have made the race into the phenomenon it is today the race's charismatic founder Fred Lebow Grete Waitz the Norwegian born runner who won it a record nine times Vic Navarra a retired firefighter who has directed the start in Staten Island for three decades and is dying of cancer and Mary Wittenberg the chief executive of the New York Road Runners Association who has vaulted the organisation to international prominence.. I started reading this book while training for the 2017 TCS NYC Marathon to help me get in the mindset build excitement and mentally prepare for the grueling NYC course The book follows several runners some elite professionals and others who are like me average people looking to finish for one reason or another as they make their way through the 262 mile course Each chapter covers a mile and tells a bit of the story of each runner It s an interesting way to detail the marathon though some of the backstories especially on the elite runners went a little long I would rather have had stories of the people who are part of the marathon the regulars who stand on street corners hold up signs have run several consecutive NYC marathons or who were first timers I also was really annoyed by a couple of falsehoods early on in the book The author perpetuates the urban marathon myth that runners on the lower level of the Verrazano Bridge risk getting sprayed with urine when those on the upper level pee off the top I ve run the top and I ve run the bottom and I ve seen neither pee ers nor been sprayed In fact you risk an early D disualification if you re caught peeing on the bridge Can we please put that one to rest alreadyI really don t think this book would hold any appeal to anyone who has notisn t planning to run NYC I don t even know that it would appeal all that much to the regular runner it s very NYC focused But if you are going to tackle the marathon this is definitely a worthwhile read to help understand the course even if some of the references are a bit dated and get yourself mentally ready to conuer it
