Mar 22, 2019

Peter Sagal's memoir, "The Incomplete Book of Running," is also a field guide to life. What can the sport teach you about survival? 


His collection of stories tracks the radio host's journey from a "simple mission to keep himself healthy" to over a decade of serious running experience. He's trained for marathons, volunteered in charity races and traveled the world to run.

In "The Incomplete Book of Running," Sagal makes a case for the powerful potential of sharing the path with others.

What are the emotional, physical and psychological aspects of endurance sports? How can running communities impact the fabric of a city like San Antonio? 

Guest: Peter Sagal, host of the NPR program "Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!" and author of "The Incomplete Book of Running"
