Very good running book, especially if you need some motivation to get out there and run. My only complaint is it was fairly unbelievable. But nonetheless, an enjoyable read and will spur you on to put in the tough miles to qualify for Boston (it never does say how he qualified).

Upon first reading this work of art by Bruce Tuckman, i was vacationing at a friend's lake house. The book was recomended to me to read so i began reading. The book did not leave my hands after that until I was done with it. It contains the same descriptiveness as the book, Once A Runner, by John L. Parker. This book ranks up at the top with the rest of them.

I read (and reread) this book before my first Boston Marathon. The action was so real I couldn't tell if this was fact...or fiction! Did Brad Townes win??? or did Bill Rogers win?? As I ran the route from Hopkinton to Boston, the scenes were vividly replayed in my mind. It was like I had been here before! This book is MUST reading for anyone attempting to qualify for Boston..."Long Road to Boston" convinced me that if Brad Townes could overcome his demons and handicaps, then surely I could train hard enough to join the runners at Boston...and I DID!! This book accompanied me to Boston!
