Reviews

"Keflezighi is a four-time Olympian who has won the Boston and New York marathons -- so it's fitting that his 2017 New York Marathon was not just his last, but his 26th. That's one marathon race per marathon mile for an athlete whose wisdom and lessons aren't just for runners."--The Washington Post

"26 Marathons is a fantastic book. It tells the story of Meb Keflezighi's career by documenting his marathons, but it's not really about running. It's about life! About setting goals and pursuing them, and how to continue to strive to excel in the midst of satisfaction and disappointments. Meb drives home the fact that winning in life isn't defined by coming in first place. This book is not just for runners. It will help you no matter what your passion in life might be."--Tony Dungy, Super Bowl Winning Coach, NFL Hall of Famer, and New York Times bestselling author

"Meb is as great a champion as I've ever known, and an even better person. 26 Marathons is the perfect roadmap for your journey to the top of the mountain. This radiantly brilliant treatise on life through sport, family, faith, perseverance and persistence epitomizes everything that I strive for, and on a path that Meb has already traveled. Thank you, for shining the light, for being the true giant among us, and for showing us that tomorrow is worth the effort to get there. Run on, beam on, teach on, carry on." --Bill Walton, Former NBA champion & MVP

"This book is a gift from Meb. I couldn't put it down as memories flooded back and his vivid descriptions put us in the races with him. Reading this a race at a time or by the years, first timers and pros alike will be inspired to "run to win" on and off the roads."--Mary Wittenberg, Former CEO NYRR, Virgin Sport

"I've watched Meb build a legendary career in distance running, one marathon at a time. 26 Marathons is a captivating look at each race from his professional marathon career and the valuable lessons they taught him about running and life." --John Legere, CEO T-Mobile
