About this product
- DescriptionIn Runner as Hero, Jay Kimiecik becomes an athlete again-in his case, a masters runner-as a way to revive his life. Kimiecik explores the world of aging, training, and performing through a self-experimental, self-reflective lens- merging science, mythology, and performance psychology. On his heroic journey, Kimiecik talks to aging experts, scientists, top-performing athletes, and the ghost of legendary Steve Prefontaine. Kimiecik's keen observations of everyday living and irreverent style take him on a journey to find the hero within. The result is a fascinating, inspiring tale about how the life as an athlete can serve as a motivational metaphor for feeling alive and achieving nearly anything.
