  • North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail

    North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail
    From the author of the bestseller Eat and Run, a thrilling memoir about his grueling, exhilarating, and immensely inspiring 46-day run to break the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. Scott Jurek is one of the world's best known and most beloved ultrarunners. Renowned for his remarkable endurance and speed, accomplished on a vegan diet, he's finished first in nearly all of ultrarunning's elite events over the course of his career. But after two decades of racing, training, speaking, and touring, Jurek felt an urgent need to discover something new about himself. He embarked on a wholly unique challenge, one that would force him to grow as a person and as an athlete: breaking the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. North is the story of the 2,189-mile journey that nearly shattered him. When he set out in the spring of 2015, Jurek anticipated punishing terrain, forbidding weather, and inevitable injuries. He would have to run nearly 50 miles a day, every day, for almost seven weeks. He knew he would be pushing himself to the limit, that comfort and rest would be in short supply -- but he couldn't have imagined the physical and emotional toll the trip would exact, nor the rewards it would offer. With his wife, Jenny, friends, and the kindness of strangers supporting him, Jurek ran, hiked, and stumbled his way north, one white blaze at a time. A stunning narrative of perseverance and personal transformation, North is a portrait of a man stripped bare on the most demanding and transcendent effort of his life. It will inspire runners and non-runners alike to keep striving for their personal best.

    When barefoot running guru Christopher McDougall takes in a neglected donkey, his aim is to get Sherman back to reasonable health. But Sherman is ill-tempered, obstinate and uncooperative - and it's clear his poor treatment has made him deeply fearful of humans. Christopher knows that donkeys need a purpose - they are working, pack animals - and so when he learns of the sport of Burro Racing or running with donkeys, he sets out to give Sherman something worth living for. With the aid of Christopher's menagerie on his farm in rural Pennsylvania, his wife Mika and their friends and neighbours including the local Amish population, Sherman begins to build trust in Christopher. To give him a purpose, they start to run together. But what Sherman gains in confidence and meaning is something we all need: a connection with nature, the outdoors, with movement. And as Christopher learns, the side benefits of exercise and animal contact are surprising, helping with mental and physical health in unexpected ways.

  • Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons

    Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons
    Marathons have become too easy for some runners. What was once the pinnacle of achievement in a runner's life is now a stepping stone for extraordinary adventure in ultramarathoning. The number of ultrarunners--those running distances of 50k (31miles), 50 miles, 100k (62 miles), or 100 miles--is growing astronomically each year. Dean Karnazes' Ultramarathon Man and Chris McDougall's Born to Run have inspired tens of thousands to try these seemingly superhuman distances. But to date, there has been no practical guide to ultramarathoning. Now, Bryon Powell has written Relentless Forward Progress, the first how-to manual for aspiring ultrarunners. Powell covers every aspect of training for and racing ultra distances. This encyclopedic volume prepares runners for going farther than they have ever gone before and, in the process, shows them that they are capable of the 'impossible.'

Packing up his family (and his running shoes), he moved from Devon to the small town of Iten, in Kenya, home to hundreds of the country's best athletes. Once there he laced up his shoes and ventured out onto the dirt tracks, running side by side with Olympic champions, young hopefuls and barefoot schoolchildren.

Med anmärkningsvärd uthållighet och snabbhet, uppnådd med vegankost, har han under sin karriär tillryggalagt nästa alla ultralöpningens elittävlingar.

Det här är berättelsen om en krävande och inspirerande 46-dagarslöpning, en 350 mil lång sträcka som nästan knäcker honom. Jurek förväntade sig tuff terräng, hårt väder och oundvikliga skador.

    Ät och spring : min osannolika resa mot ultramaraton och mästerskap
    Under närmare tjugo års tid har Scott Jurek varit en av världens främsta löpare på distansen ultramaraton. Men under uppväxten var Scott varken snabbare eller mer uthållig än andra ungar, han led av högt blodtryck och åt gärna frukost på McDonald´s. Ät och spring är Scott Jureks egen berättelse om utvecklingen från soffpotatis till ultramaratonlöpare - med lopp från 42 kilometer till över 20 mil. Han var en av de löpare som reste till Mexiko för att tävla mot tarahumaraindianerna, vilket beskrivs i bästsäljaren Born to run.Jurek visar att det går att övervinna nästan allt: trötthet, smärta både fysisk och själslig och betonar vikten av att välja rätt mat. Successivt övergick han via vegetarisk kosthållning till att bli vegan. Men Jureks främsta budskap är att löpning inte handlar om medfödd talang utan om viljestyrka.I boken varvar han praktiska löp- och träningsråd, osannolika historier om uthållighet, vetenskapliga fakta och härliga vegetariska recept. Ät och spring är en självbiografi, träningsguide och en vägledning till en medvetnare livsstil - allt i ett.'Vilken triumf - såväl Scott Jureks liv som den här unika boken! Jurek tar sig an utmaningar man inte ens kan föreställa sig, och tack vare den här hisnande och personliga berättelsen förstår jag äntligen hur han gör det. Han har bokstavligt talat byggt upp sig själv inifrån och ut, och slutresultatet är en man - och en historia - som ingen annan.'Christopher McDougall, författare till Born to Run - Jakten på löpningens själSCOTT JUREK är en av världens främsta ultramaratonlöpare och har vunnit ett flertal guldmedaljer i olika mästerskap.

    The #1 'New York Times' BestsellerAn 'Entertainment Weekly' Top Ten Book of the YearNow a Major Motion Picture'''''''''''' '''''''''''''Running with Scissors' is the true story of a boy whose mother (a poet with delusions of Anne Sexton) gave him away to be raised by her unorthodox psychiatrist who bore a striking resemblance to Santa Claus. So at the age of twelve, Burroughs found himself amidst Victorian squalor living with the doctor's bizarre family, and befriending a pedophile who resided in the backyard shed. The story of an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of, and the Christmas tree stayed up all year round, where Valium was consumed like candy, and if things got dull an electroshock- therapy machine could provide entertainment. The funny, harrowing and bestselling account of an ordinary boy's survival under the most extraordinary circumstances.Running with Scissors AcknowledgmentsGratitude doesn't begin to describe it: Jennifer Enderlin, Christopher Schelling, John Murphy, Gregg Sullivan, Kim Cardascia, Michael Storrings, and everyone at St. Martin's Press. Thank you: Lawrence David, Suzanne Finnamore, Robert Rodi, Bret Easton Ellis, Jon Pepoon, Lee Lodes, Jeff Soares, Kevin Weidenbacher, Lynda Pearson, Lona Walburn, Lori Greenburg, John DePretis, and Sheila Cobb. I would also like to express my appreciation to my mother and father for, no matter how inadvertently, giving me such a memorable childhood. Additionally, I would like to thank the real-life members of the family portrayed in this book for taking me into their home and accepting me as one of their own. I recognize that their memories of the events described in this book are different than my own. They are each fine, decent, and hard-working people. The book was not intended to hurt the family. Both my publisher and I regret any unintentional harm resulting from the publishing and marketing of Running with Scissors. Most of all, I would like to thank my brother for demonstrating, by example, the importance of being wholly unique.

    Sky runner : hitta styrka, balans och glädje i din löpning
    Bli den bästa versionen av dig själv som löpare! Oavsett om du springer 3 kilometer eller 5 mil på asfalt eller trail så kommer den här boken förändra synen på din löpning och ge dig en djupare motivation och mening med det du gör.¨ Skyrunner ¨ handlar om så mycket mer än att springa i bergen. Det handlar om en livsstil, och ett förhållningssätt till livet, löpning och naturen, om storheten i det oändliga likväl som i det lilla. Om lätthet och lek, om hängivenhet. Om att resan trots allt är viktigare än målet och det ger så mycket mer att ibland inte ta närmaste vägen. Det handlar om val. Att lyssna på sig själv och bygga både yttre och inre förutsättningar för hållbarhet i alla bemärkelser. Trots att trailrunning ofta handlar om långa distanser så anses det vara en snällare form av löpning med lägre skaderisk då varje steg är unikt och varierat och på så sätt sparar kroppen i motsats till en monoton löpning på hårt underlag som sliter hårt på kroppen ergonomiskt. Emelie uppmuntrar oss till modet att våga träna mer på vår egen intuition och lust. Med basen utifrån ett antal nyckelpass i veckan så uppmuntrar hon sedan friheten att improvisera övrig träning under veckan beroende på väder, känsla och inspiration. Ett upplägg som är både befriande och ansvarstagande. - Tricket är att se din träning som något lekfullt och lustfyllt, något som du vill tillbaka till inte något som du måste göra. Emelie Forsberg är professionell bergsatlet. Hon tävlar i trail och skyrunning och under vintern då löpsäsongen har paus tävlar hon i Skimo ( ski mountaineering racing). Båda sporterna är stora publiksporter i Europa och numera på stark framväxt även i Sverige. Emelie refereras ibland till som Sveriges mest okända superstjärna. Förutom att ha blivit världsmästare inom sin sport är hon en stor inspiratör för många genom sin blog emelieforsberg.com och på sina populära Instagramkonton @tinaemelie och @moonvalley_smallfarming där hon delar med sig av sin livsstil och framförallt sin enorma löpglädje och kärlek och ödmjukhet till naturen. I sin bok delar hon generöst med sig av sin erfarenhet, konkreta övningar, några recept och många historier ur sitt liv på högsta nivå. - ¨ Vi är alla skapta till att springa, det är bara att sätta en fot framför den andra¨. Kilian Jornet en av världens mest meriterade bergsatleter har tagit bokens spektakulära bilder.

  • What I Talk About When I Talk about Running

    What I Talk About When I Talk about Running
    In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he'd completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, not to mention triathlons and a slew of critically acclaimed books, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and on his writing. Equal parts travelogue, training log, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon and settings ranging from Tokyo's Jingu Gaien gardens, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston among young women who outpace him.Through this marvellous lens of sport emerges a cornucopia of memories and insights: the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer, his greatest triumphs and disappointments, his passion for vintage LPs, and the experience, after fifty, of seeing his race times improve and then fall back. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, 'What I Talk About When I Talk About Running' is rich and revealing, both for fans of this masterful yet private writer and for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in distance running.

Våra 3 favoriter bland böcker om löpning

Det finns några böcker som sticker ut och som fångat intresset kring löpningen lite extra. Vi vill lyfta fram dessa tre då vi tycker de var och en tillför en extra dimension kring löpning som livsstil.

Born to Run, av Christopher McDougall

Nästan alla inbitna löpare man pratar med nämner denna kultförklarade bok. Den handlar om den mexikanska indianstammen Tarahumara som beskrivs som det löpande folket. I Copper Canyons tar de sig fram på sina tunna sandaler i oländig terräng mil efter mil.

I boken får man följa flera kända karaktärer inom ultralöpning som till exempel Scott Jurek. Micah True (aka Caballo Blanco) är amerikanen som bosatte sig i Mexico och föll för löparkulturen hos Tarahumaras. Han organiserar ett lopp 2003 (Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon) och det är bland annat det loppet som man får följa i Born to Run.

Eat and Run, av Scott Jurek

En rent subjektiv känsla är att antalet vegetarianer och veganer är större bland trail och ultralöpare än i övriga samhället. Kanske är det för att den levande legenden inom sporten, Scott Jurek, har lyft fram vegansk kosthållning som en nyckelfaktor för träning och återhämtning.

Eat and Run är en av hans böcker och handlar om hans löpning och kost. Det finns en del recept också i boken även om det mesta är skrivet som en biografi över hans löparliv.

Löparglädje - en liten bok om löpning av Rune Larsson

Rune Larsson är lite av svenska ultralöpningsvärldens pappa. Han har i sin lilla bok om löpning sammanfattat hur han ser glädjen i löpningen och hur man kan träna för att behålla den livet ut.

På Rune Larssons meritlista finns bland annat tre segrar i det ultralånga loppet Spartathlon som går över 246 kilometer. Som lite kuriosa kan vi även nämna att Rune har rott över Atlanten och sprungit tvärs över hela USA. Du kan köpa boken här.
