Ed Caesar

Two Hours: The Quest to Run the Impossible Marathon

In this spell-binding book, Ed Caesar takes us into the world of the elite of the elite: the greatest marathoners on earth. Through the stories of these rich characters, and their troubled lives, he traces the history of the marathon as well as the science, physiology and psychology involved in running so fast, for so long.

And he shows us why this most democratic of races retains its savage, enthralling appeal – why we are drawn to test ourselves to the limit.
