New York Times bestseller for 14 weeks in 1978, Running & Being became known as the philosophical bible for runners around the world. More than thirty years after its initial publication, it remains every bit as relevant today.

Written by the late, beloved Dr. George Sheehan, Running & Being tells of the author's midlife return to the world of exercise, play, and competition, in which he found "a world beyond sweat" that proved to be a source of great revelation and personal growth. But Running & Being focuses more on life than it does, specifically, on running. It provides an outline for a lifetime program of fitness and joy, showing how the body helps determine our mental and spiritual energies.

Drawing from the words and actions of the great athletes and thinkers throughout history, Dr. Sheehan ties it all together with his own philosophy on the importance of fitness and sport, as well as his knowledge of training, injury prevention, and race competition. Above all, he describes what it means to experience the oneness of body and mind, of self and the universe. In this, he argues, we have the power to discover "the truth that makes men free."

From the Publisher:

By publishing this 20th-anniversary edition of his signature work, the Sheehan family hopes to make George Sheehan's work available to all athletes. We encourage you to read his words, and we hope you find on its pages the inspiration to lead your own athletic journey that might help you become the person you were meant to be.

From the Back Cover:

"On stage, George would refer to me as the 'straight man'; he was the 'comic relief.' In reality, I was the 'scientist' and George was the "philosopher.'

Together we were a dynamic team and Aerobics and Running&Being changed the world. I am delighted to see that this legendary book is being introduced which hopefully will improve the health of millions as it did over two decades ago." Dr. Ken Cooper, Founder and Chairman, Cooper Aerobics Institute.

"With Running&Being, George set the standard. It remains the philosophical bible for all runners. This should be mandatory reading for any athlete looking for guidance in the game of life." Joe Henderson, Runner's World

"Running&Being is scripture. It is the holy text held in reverence not only by runners but by all who value the existence which is fully engaged. George Sheehan heeds Socrates' exhortation to examine life deeply. He finds it abundantly rich if we but have the courage to seek it." Walter Bortz II, M.D., Stanford University

"In Running&Being, Sheehan restores and reminds us of the physical, metal, and spiritual energies we all hold. He allows us to believe that we can all be winners. We can all learn from his lucid analysis of the 'total experience.'" Jeff Galloway, Author,
