THE RIVER ROAD is an evocative novel of becoming a runner in 1972. Filled with compelling stories of runners, running, history, the 1972 U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials and the Munich Olympics, it brings to life an era in which the U.S. competed for gold in nearly every distance running event. As many of the sport's icons dominate their events in Eugene and prepare for Munich, fifteen-year-old Lenny prepares for his first season of varsity cross country. Inspired by Jim Ryun, Frank Shorter and Steve Prefontaine, Lenny also learns that Olympic distance runners have come from Minnesota and trained on the same River Road on which he runs. A world of running lore that he never knew existed is opened to him and helps him begin to explore and realize his own ability to run.

'Don McNelly is nearly ninety years old and has run 713 marathons.... The normal marathoner runs in two marathons per year. To match Don, a marathoner would have to run fifty-nine years doing one marathon per month....' Don McNelly is the world record holder for the number of marathons completed over the age of eighty. In 1969, he began his long-distance running career in an effort to lose weight after a college friend died of a heart attack. Since then, Don has run in every state and every province in Canada. And true to the meaning of his name, 'ruler of the world,' he has run in France, England, Germany, Portugal, Thailand, Holland, Italy, Argentina, Antarctica, Norway, Mexico, and Japan. In one year alone he completed twenty-seven marathons! The Madman and the Marathon by Juanita Tischendorf sums up this incredible man's running history, painting vivid and inspiring pictures of race days—including what it looks (and smells) like when sixteen men pack into two vans and relay across the country—and answering questions that aspiring runners have always wanted to know about what it takes to go the distance. What is the method to Don McNelly's madness? Did he do it all without injury? What does his family think about his running crazy? Is he still running? Find out in The Madman and the Marathon.
