Viac o knihe

2,200 miles. 47 days. One remarkable athlete.
Scott Jurek takes on the Appalachian Trail.

Scott Jurek is one of the greatest ultramarathon runners of all time and a living legend. North tells the story of his biggest challenge, undertaken at the end of a career full of glittering achievements: breaking the speed record for the Appalachian Trail, the famous path that runs for nearly 2,200 miles between Georgia and Maine, almost the entire length of the United States. An ordeal of torturous physical exertion, debilitating sleep deprivation and unimaginable psychological pressure, the run required Jurek to reinvent himself at an age when lesser athletes would have been winding down. Battered by the elements and nearly beaten by an agonising injury, he ran, hiked and stumbled for forty-six days, eleven hours and twenty minutes, covering nearly fifty miles every single day. Always unsure whether he was going to make it to the finish, he was pulled north in pursuit of a lifelong dream. Filled with Jurek’s unique insights into running, as well as compelling descriptions of the awe-inspiring landscape of the Appalachian Trail and its rich history, North will delight runners and non-runners alike and will inspire anyone striving for their personal best.

Kdo má rád beh a rád sa necháva inšpirovať tak táto kniha je určená pre neho. Scott Jurek je proste žijúca legenda ultrabehu a tak isto ako v jeho predošlej knihe "Jedz a behaj " tak aj táto je plná dobrodružstvá a motivácie.
