Author(s): Rob Young
When Rob Young saw the stories of how runners at the London Marathon had raised lots of money for charity, he decided he would do the same. Except, he decided to take things a little bit further. Despite never having run a marathon before, he set out to achieve an astonishing new record: he would run more than 365 marathons in a year. This book not only tells the incredible story of Young's quest, during which he broke numerous world records, but also provides vital lessons in how to motivate yourself to achieve your goals and essential tips (learned the very hard way) in how to run and keep on going.
The son of an abusive father, Rob Young has been inspired to do what he can to help ensure that no child has to suffer in the way he did. After serving in the Army for more than five years, he eventually turned to marathon running, completing 370 marathons in a year, won a 3080-mile race across America and ran a world record 373 miles non-stop.
