On top of the 50,000 plus participants who actually run the race, it’s an event that involves millions of people when you include the thousands of volunteers, the hundreds of thousands of supporters lining the streets of the metropolis par excellence, and the global TV audience watching at home. "The Never-Ending Run" aims to give a 360° explanation and tell the story of one of the most famous marathons in the world, starting with a mile-by-mile description of the race, including first-hand experiences.On the back of the story of the race, there follows a guide to New York specially dedicated to runners and all their shopping and tourism needs, along with scores of interesting facts and stats. "The Never-Ending Run" recounts the history of the New York City Marathon, provides intriguing insights and explains how to participate and properly prepare for the race- all without overlooking essential tips and suggestions for enjoying life, and your break, in the Big Apple. Part one, The Race, illustrates the history and route of the most famous race in the world, including race strategies by coach Fulvio Massini, as well as accounts from other famous athletes, such as Peter Ciaccia, Orlando Pizzolato, Franca Fiacconi, George Hirsch, German Silva, and Alex Zanardi.

'I WANT TO INSPIRE PEOPLE. I WANT SOMEONE TO LOOK AT ME AND SAY: "BECAUSE OF YOU I DIDN'T GIVE UP".' Goals is a very personal and deeply-moving collection of life-affirming and inspirational real-life stories from which Chelsea and Italy football legend Gianluca Vialli has drawn great strength and resolve during his battle with pancreatic cancer. The stories and the individuals involved have been selected by Vialli because they have offered him comfort and inspiration at the time of his greatest challenge, and he feels that they can do the same for many of us, whatever it might be that we are facing. The result is a beautifully-written and touching narrative which is by turns vital and poignant, spine-tingling and heart-rending. The very last story in Goals is Vialli's own, bravely and movingly chronicling his battle with this cruel illness.

A bike can be so many different things – a simple way of navigating busy city streets or enjoying quiet lanes, a cross-country steed to take a rider up hill and down dale or even a world-beating racing machine. What unites everyone who rides is that they each have their own cycling story to tell. This book collects inspirational stories from riders around the world, both ordinary and extraordinary, from the cyclist who conquered Mont Ventoux on a Boris bike, to the trials rider who hops from building to building, to classic tales of Grand Tour rivalries and legendary cycling records of days gone by. Essential reading for anyone who loves life on two wheels.
