ANew York Timesbestseller for 14 weeks in 1978,Running & Beingbecame known as the philosophical bible for runners around the world. More than thirty years after its initial publication, it remains every bit as relevant today. Written by the late, beloved Dr. George Sheehan, Running & Being tells of the author's midlife return to the world of exercise, play, and competition, in which he found "a world beyond sweat" that proved to be a source of great revelation and personal growth. But Running & Being focuses more on life than it does, specifically, on running. It provides an outline for a lifetime program of fitness and joy, showing how the body helps determine our mental and spiritual energies. Drawing from the words and actions of the great athletes and thinkers throughout history, Dr. Sheehan ties it all together with his own philosophy on the importance of fitness and sport, as well as his knowledge of training, injury prevention, and race competition. Above all, he describes what it means to experience the oneness of body and mind, of self and the universe. In this, he argues, we have the power to discover "the truth that makes men free."… (més)

So inspiring... To get me back onto the road

I'm looking for both spiritual and physical motivation to take the next half of my life by the horns, especially by getting back onto the road, running. I used to be a four-mile daily runner with eight mile weekends. Sheehan was recommended to me as a prophet. That he is indeed. ( )

This was a hilarious book. Crazy over-the-top paeans to physical fitness as the ultimate virtue, wild claims about spirituality and its connection to running, and an insistence that every long-distance runner shares the same totally Asperger's traits as the author. I giggled all the way through.

That said, the sections that are actual memoirs of races or discussions of the nuts-and-bolts of running are solid - among other things, the author gives a dead-on description of hypercorticism while pointing out that there was no current science to explain "staleness" resulting from overtraining.

It's not a book I'd recommend - it's way too scattered, hyperbolic, and dated to really hang together - but it was a funny read. ( )

I didn't know what to think of this book when it came across my desk. Everyone knows George Sheehan is a renowned expert on distance running. Everyone also knows he isn't exactly the friendliest of runners. What I didn't know was how funny he would be in Running and Being. Part philosophy, part psychology, part memoir, and all about running, Running and Being was above all else, entertaining. Amidst the advice about pace, hills, racing, losing, injuries, and accomplishments there is humor, sarcasm and wit. Even the illustrations are funny.
Here are two examples of nonrunning humor: "I was born with the dread that someone would punch me in the nose or, even worse, put his arm around me" (p 26), and "I never smoked. Buying something and then setting it on fire is incomprehensible" (p 47). Crack me up.

Despite Sheehan's "keep away" attitude I found his advice to be warm, solid and comforting. If words could actually be all those things. I consider his expertise on the subject of putting one foot in front of another to be priceless.

This guy started active running when he was 48 - great! Runners philosophy, kind of. Finding your authentic self through physical activity. Would be better without far too many references to christian belief (unavoidable in american thinking?). Somewhat blurred towards the end. ( )

To Joe Henderson and Rich Koster, who encouraged when encouragement was needed, praised when praise was due, and were silent when that was the kindest thing to do.
