Peter Sagal, beloved host of NPR’s Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me! and a popular columnist for Runner’s World, shares lessons, stories, advice, and warnings gleaned from running the equivalent of once around the earth. At the verge of turning 40, Sagal—brainiac Harvard grad, short bald Jew, and a sedentary star of public radio—started running seriously. And much to his own surprise, he kept going, running fourteen marathons and logging tens of thousands of miles on roads and paths all across America and the world, including the 2013 Boston Marathon, where he crossed the finish line moments before the bombings. The result is a funny, wise, and powerful meditation about running and life that will appeal to everyone – runners or not.

 

Peter Sagal is the host of the Peabody Award-winning NPR news quiz Wait Wait...Don’t Tell Me!, the most popular show on public radio, heard by five million listeners each week. He is also a playwright, a screenwriter, the host of Constitution USA with Peter Sagal on PBS, a one-time extra in a Michael Jackson music video, a contributor to publications from Opera News to The Magazine of the AARP and a featured columnist in Runner’s World. He’s run fourteen marathons across the United States. Sagal lives near Chicago with his wife Mara.
