Paul Tergat: Running to the Limitby Jurg Wirz
Running to the Limit
Paul Tergat has secured his place in the history books not only with his Marathon World Record in Berlin at the end of September 2003, but also by winning five consecutive titles at World Cross country Championships and breaking various World Records on the track and the road. He is considered as one of the greatest runners of all time.
Running to the Limit illustrates Tergat's way from an average boy who grew up in poverty in a tiny village in Kenya to the Marathon World Record holder and Dollar-millionaire. It shows the triumphs and disappointments that formed him as a human being. Today, the man they call "the gentleman" is admired because of his achievements as an athlete, as well as because of his role as a UN Goodwill Ambassador Against Hunger.
In Running to the Limit Paul Tergat also tells a lot about his training program. He gives many tips for everyday runners, because many of his hints and ideas hold true for record holders as well as for hobbyists. In a special chapter Tergat's longtime coach, the famous Italian Dr. Gabriele Rosa, talks about the secrets of his very successful marathon philosophy.
Running to the Limit is richly illustrated with colorful photographs, many of them as yet unpublished shots from Kenya.
