Description
"Most of the serious thinking I have done over the past 20 years has been done while running," notes philosopher Mark Rowlands, author of The Philosopher and the Wolf. In this honest and witty memoir he describes the most significant runs of his life—from the entire day he spent running as a boy in Wales to runs along French beaches and up Irish mountains with his beloved wolf Brenin, and through Florida swamps more recently with his dog Nina—while unpacking the meditations such runs triggered.

"Rowlands incorporates work by philosophers from Aristotle to Wittgenstein with his own musings, leading to ruminations on topics as diverse as midlife crises, evolution, and the meaning of life, love, and mortality.... The runs are recalled with clarity, capturing both the agony and exhilaration of the experience, and connect to his thoughts through, for instance, relating the phases of a marathon to certain philosophers. Rowlands, more critical than starry-eyed, still brings deep feeling to his work. Cerebral and heartfelt, this memoir uses one man's history on the road as a foundation to investigate universal experiences."—Booklist
