            26 Marathons: What I've Learned About Faith, Identity, Running, and Life From Each Marathon I've Run (Hardback)

            Four-time Olympic marathoner Meb Keflezighi shares his lessons on life, family, faith, and running through a reflection on each of the 26 marathons he's run in his storied career. When four-time Olympian Meb Keflezighi ran his final marathon in New York City on November 5, 2017, ...it marked the end of an extraordinary distance-running career. Meb will be remembered as the only person in history to win both the Boston and New York City marathons as well as an Olympic marathon silver medal. Meb's last marathon was also his 26th, and each of those 26 marathons has come with its own unique challenges, rewards, and outcomes for him. Through focused narrative, Meb describes key moments and triumphs that made each marathon a unique learning experience and shows runners--whether recreational or professional--how to apply the lessons he's learned to their own running and lives. Chronologically organized by marathon, 26 Marathons offers wisdom Meb has gleaned about life, family, identity, and faith in addition to tips about running, training, and nutrition. Equal parts inspiration and practical advice, this book will provide readers an inside look at the life and success of one of the greatest runners living today.

            The days of slaughtering buffalo were supposedly over, mainly because there were so pitifully few of them remaining. But with top dollar on offer for their severed heads as trophies, some hunters just can't resist. In Yellowstone Park, where such poaching is illegal, Captain Mose...s Harris and his company of US Cavalry are assigned the job of stopping them. Yet in the depths of winter, following an apparently motiveless murder on the army post in Mammoth, the captain begins to realise that it is not just the buffalo that are threatened by greed and corruption. With a merciless hired gun on the loose, Harris sends army scout Deke Wilson and a squad of soldiers in pursuit. This triggers a sequence of events involving high finance and the Northern Pacific Railroad, which not only endangers the lives of them all, but also the very survival of America's first national park.

            Austerity is perhaps the major challenge of our times, given the speed at which it arrived and the consequences of its impact upon society. The global financial crash and economic downturn was the catalyst for change and, against a backdrop of advice from experts adverse to Keyne...sian economics, the ideology of austerity grew and became the dominant thinking to steer economies out of recession. This comprehensive volume draws upon both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies to provide a varied and contextually rich insight into sport, policy and politics in an era of austerity. The authors cover a wide range of issues in a variety of organisational contexts and geographies, including: sports participation across different socio-demographic groups; the impact of austerity on the provision of community sports; disability sport; public management of sport facilities; the performance of public sport facilities with respect to access, finance, utilisation and customer satisfaction; the potential impact of austerity on sport for development; elite sport; and social inclusion and poverty. This book makes a significant contribution to the current academic debate, while raising important considerations for policy makers and managers. It was originally published as a special issue of The International Journal of Sport Policy and Politics.
