The Incomplete Book of Running Audiobook

The Incomplete Book of Running

Author: Peter Sagal Narrator: Peter Sagal Release Date: October 2018

"Sagal has created a new genre—the five-minute-mile memoir. Combining commentary and reflection about running with a deeply felt personal story, this book is winning, smart, honest, and affecting. Whether you are a runner or not, it will move you." —Susan Orlean In the midpoint of life, I found myself lost, in a dark place. So I tried to figure out exactly how many miles I had run to get there... So begins The Incomplete Book of Running, a funny, wise, and powerful meditation about running and life from Peter Sagal, longtime columnist for Runner's World and the host of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!, that shares stories, advice, and warnings he's learned over his long and checkered career on the pavement. Just before turning forty, Sagal—brainiac Harvard grad, short bald Jew with a disposition toward heft, and sedentary star of public radio who had exercised sporadically as a teenager—started running seriously. A decade later, what began as a simple mission to keep himself healthy had evolved into fourteen marathon finishes—including one in Boston in 2013, where he crossed the line only moments before two bombs went off—and tens of thousands of miles on roads, sidewalks, paths, and trails all over the United States and the world. Running was an important part of his life, but it wasn't until he experienced a personal crisis that he realized it had become a mode of survival. In these pages, Sagal writes with humor and insight about the moments that have changed the way he sees the relationship between life and sport—from running a charity race in his underwear (in St. Louis, in February) and attempting to "quiet his colon" while taking a lap in his neighborhood to volunteering as a guide for visually impaired runners, causing a scandal by sneaking onto a course midrace, and making his triumphant post-bombing return to Boston in 2014. He also dives deep into the emotional experience of running, body image, the similarities between endurance sports and sadomasochism, the legacy of the sport as passed down from parent and child, and the odd but extraordinary bonds created among strangers and friends sharing the road. As time goes on and his mileage increases, he realizes that the only way to overcome obstacles is simply to keep running through them. Candid, clear-eyed, and frequently hilarious, The Incomplete Book of Running is about more than just a man and a sport. It is a field guide to life, a collection of lessons centered around all those things that keep us moving forward: hope, persistence, practice, and love.

The Wait Album: More of the Best Audiobook

The Wait Album: More of the Best

Author: Carl Kasell, Npr, Peter Sagal Narrator: Carl Kasell, Peter Sagal Release Date: August 2012

Each week, more than three million listeners tune into Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me! to test their knowledge of the week's news. In the popular "Not My Job" segment, a celebrity guest must answer three questions on a topic totally outside his or her area of expertise. The topic seems random but is thoughtfully skewed. Because Henry Winkler played Fonzie on Happy Days, host Peter Sagal asks him about Ponzi schemes. For indie rock singer Neko Case, the questions are about Necco Wafers. Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken Jr. holds the record for most consecutive games played; the Wait Wait team pitches him stumpers about sports' real streakers, those without clothes. Jane Goodall, who studies wild chimpanzees, is met with questions about actor Nicolas Cage. And so on. Twisted and tricky, it's all in good fun for panelists, celebrities, and especially the audience. Contents: -Introduction by Peter Sagal -Neko Case -Henry Winkler -Cal Ripken, Jr. -Tavi Gevinson -Mike Rowe -Brian Williams -Jane Goodall -George Porter, Jr.-Susan Orlean -Vince Gill

Stories from the National Public Radio archives celebrate moms and motherhood. Stories so compelling you'll stay in your car to hear them through even if you're sitting in your own driveway.

Storyteller Kevin Kling describes the yearly conflict in Minnesota between Mothers Day and the opening of fishing season. Commentator Gwen Macsai marvels that her childrens standards for motherhood are higher than their own. And comedian Amy Borkowsky shares hilarious messages left on her answering machine by her worrywart mom, including I'm having second thoughts about that little palm-size computer that you bought.
