In How to Lose a Marathon, Joel Cohen takes readers on a step-by-step journey from being a couch potato to being a couch potato who can finish a marathon. Through a hilarious combination of running tips, narrative, illustrations, and infographics, Cohen breaks down the misery that is forcing yourself to run. From chafing to the best times to run, explaining the phenomenon known as the "Oprah Line," and exposing the torture that is a premarathon expo, Cohen acts as your satirical guide to every aspect of the runner's experience. Offering both real advice and genuine commiseration with runners of all skill levels, How to Lose a Marathon lets you know that even if you believe that the "runner's high" is a complete myth, you can still survive all 26.2 miles of a marathon.

  1. Raljerande och putslustig
    Kurt Robert Pettersson, 6 februari 2018

    Lite ansträngande att läsa då det är mycket raljerande och putslustiga vitsar, men gillar man sånt så kanske det är ett givet köp. Jag tycker fö att författaren verkar vara en bättre löpare än författare, något som gäller de flesta löparböcker, förutom Born To Run då som verkligen håller både en hög litterär klass och är en mycket inspirerande löparbok.
