Running Out of Gas : A Lifelong Runner's Take on Slowing Down (Paperback) (Scott Ludwig)
about this item
It’s inevitable that all runners who have been pounding the pavement for a very long time will eventually slow down. Having run every day since November 30, 1978, Scott Ludwig certainly falls into this category. Considering that he can no longer run a single mile in the pace he ran 26 of them when he set his first marathon best many years ago, Ludwig finds he is ready to accept the reality of slowing down with age.
Now that he has entered the ranks of the “grizzled veterans,” he seeks to offer runners all the wisdom and insight he gained from his many years—and miles—on the roads and trails. A “do as I say, not as I do” runner, Ludwig has compiled his advice for runners who find they may not run quite as fast as they used to in Running Out of Gas, a humorous take on aging gracefully.
Relating his own personal running anecdotes, Ludwig prepares runners for what’s to come, while sharing a few laughs along the way. Runners of all ages and mileage will enjoy Scott Ludwig’s Running Out of Gas.
