Peter Sagal exudes enthusiasm and wry humor throughout this memoir regardless of whether he is reminiscing about his fastest marathon or about using running to survive depression. Sagal hosts NPR's "Wait Wait Don't Tell Me!" with a distinctive radio voice combined with comic timing. Here his focus is running, and he has a lot to say--you need only shoes to start, run without headphones to focus on your body, and join a running group so you'll stick with it. But running is also an emotional release. Sagal began running as an overweight child and redoubled his efforts in middle age as his family life disintegrated to the point of a bitter divorce. Even as Sagal plumbs negative emotions, he keeps up his pace and a positive vibe, reinforcing the adage that exercise always helps. A.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
