How to Lose a Marathon: A Starter’s Guide to Finishing in 26.2 Chapters

In How to Lose a Marathon, Joel Cohen takes readers on a step-by-step journey from being a couch potato to being a couch potato who can finish a marathon. Through a hilarious combination of running tips, narrative, illustrations and infographics, Cohen breaks down the misery that is forcing yourself to run. From chafing to the best times to run, explaining the phenomenon known as the ‘Oprah Line,’ and exposing the torture that is a pre-marathon expo, Cohen acts as your snarky guide to every aspect of the runner’s experience. Offering both real advice and genuine commiseration with runners of all skill levels, How to Lose a Marathon lets you know that even if you believe that the ‘runner’s high’ is a complete myth, you can still survive all 26.2 miles of a marathon.

This is the perfect book for anyone thinking about running a long, long way – or even if you’re not! Written by one of the team who works on The Simpsons, it is a hilarious read and has some useful insights for beginners, too. You’ll find a full review on page 65 of Outdoor Fitness Magazine.
