Product Details


“Moving…emotionally rewarding…Foreman says that marathon running—or training even—remind you of the preciousness of every moment, moment after moment. …Of course, I’m also a sucker for the Daddy-daughter stuff in the book.”—Scott Simon, NPR Weekend Edition

“In Foreman’s witty and endear­ing chronicle, My Year of Run­ning Dangerously, we follow his transformation from self-described couch potato to marathoner, then ultra-marathoner. You don’t have to be a runner to understand—and feel—the blood, sweat and tears Foreman pours into his training and his first marathon with his daughter.”Bookpage

“Tom Foreman has one of the most unique, interesting and honest minds that I’ve ever encountered in journalism. His book captures so much of what makes him such a pleasure to call colleague and friend. Despite the truly ridiculous amount of running he describes, this book is really about so much more: family, relationships, career, change, and ultimately about making it all fit. It may or may not awaken the hidden runner in you, but it will bring you along for his hilarious and moving journey.”—Jake Tapper, CNN 
“Tom Foreman has an ability to capture honest humor while talking about something as horrible and painful as exercise. I loved everything about this book except the running.”—Jim Gaffigan
“Foreman demonstrates how he balances his passion for running with all else that is important in life. I’ve interacted with thousands of runners throughout my career and I can say that Tom is one of the most passionate runners I’ve met.”—Meb Keflezighi, Olympic Silver medalist, Boston and NYC Marathon champion
“As a—don’t laugh—basketball player, I understand full well Tom Foreman’s mad desire to exert above his age. But his recital of the perils of long-distance running made me decide that turning the pages of this graceful and amusing saga was enough exercise for a summer day. Run—but only to your bookstore.”—Harry Shearer

“Even the author’s long-suffering family had to admit at the end of the season that he was happier, and readers will enjoy running alongside him.”Kirkus
