Book Overview

With My Life on the Run, Bart Yasso--an icon of one of the most enduringly popular recreational sports in the United States--offers a touching and humorous memoir about the rewards and challenges of running. Recounting his adventures in locales like Antarctica, Africa, and Chitwan National Park in Nepal (where he was chased by an angry rhino), Yasso recommends the best marathons on foreign terrain and tells runners what they need to know to navigate...

best since Sheehan

As a running mag editor for many years I've been obligated to read/scan far too many running articles and books. My official retirement freed me of that sometimes tedious duty; however, when I found My Life on the Run, I couldn't resist. I have to say, with no ulterior motive, Bart Yasso's book is the most philosophically insightful since George Sheehan and the most engaging book on running I've read (forced or by choice). Just my opinion--but of course if I hadn't liked it, I wouldn't comment at all (my job as editor being past tense).

Funny and a Great Read

This is an intelligent book with GREAT stories from Mr. Yasso. I loved it. I laughed out loud in some of the situations he faces. You won't find a better read--runner or not!

Loved it!

This book cracked me up. Bart is inspirational, funny, and crazy. All the making's of a runner:)!

For anyone interested in running

Bart Yasso's stories are funny (he is a pun master) and entertaining,while inspiring the reader to get out and run a lot of miles! I read excerpts from this book in Runner's World, bought the book, and have given copies as gifts. Everyone I know who has read it really likes it.

Inspirational Read

Whether you are a seasoned runner or an aspiring beginner this book is worth the read. As I read this book I found myself catapulted from deep contemplation to laughter within the course of a few sentences. Through this collection of stories Yasso takes us through the highs and lows of his life and the great joy of running (and biking). He offers salient advice for those who want to run better without making it sound like a "how to" section. Whether you run or just read this is a book of inspiration that is too good to pass up on.
