The inspiring story of Ben Smith – who ran 401 marathons in 401 days with minimal support, to raise money for Stonewall and Kidscape. On 1 September 2015, Ben Smith set out from Bristol. Over the next 401 days, he would burn an estimated 2.4 million calories; run with almost 10,000 people; inspire almost 600 first-time marathon runners and visit 101 schools. He would also raise in excess of £325,000 for charity. In between, Ben fractured his back; was almost blown away by a hurricane on the Gower Peninsula; kissed his boyfriend Kyle live on TV during the London Marathon; took 10 days off after discovering his spine was collapsing; spent the next 117 days playing catchup. And he wouldn’t have changed a thing. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Hawkins. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/033544/bk_adbl_033544_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
´Have you lost your mind?! Delhi to Mumbai? Is this some sort of a joke? And your work, your family? Chinu, it´s time for you to run around a baby, not around cities in these marathons....´ Miles to Run Before I Sleep is the true story of Sumedha Mahajan, a married working woman who undertook an extraordinary journey. At an age when most women worry about household finances and the responsibilities of starting a family, she wanted to break the mould and follow her dreams. Sumedha was born with asthma, and the hospital was her second home throughout her childhood. She started running to keep herself fit and to prevent asthma attacks, but it developed into a way of life. Then, in April 2012, she took up the challenge of running 1,500 kilometres, from Delhi to Mumbai, in 30 days. When the run began, it was purely a physical challenge which she had set for herself, but as it progressed it became a mental struggle that took Sumedha to her very limits. And as she made her triumphant way to the finish line, she overcame not just her physical shortcomings but also the extreme prejudice of lookers-on who were convinced that she would fail miserably. An account of a gruelling adventure and a rousing story about finding oneself, Miles to Run Before I Sleep both inspires and delights. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sakuntala Ramanee.

Tim Richmond was, fellow NASCAR driver Kyle Petty said, ´´a stranger in time.´´ In one regard, the flashy, flamboyant driver from Ashland, Ohio, was years ahead of the trends in a sport that would soon enjoy explosive growth in popularity. Women who were NASCAR fans loved him - and so did their husbands and boyfriends. Richmond believed he could use his stardom in racing as a springboard to a second career as an actor, and he had the Hollywood good looks to make that a realistic dream. At the same time, Richmond was also a throwback. He pushed his race cars hard, too hard at times, driving every lap like he was hauling moonshine through the mountains of the Carolinas with a revenuer on his rear bumper. Those who saw him drive still compare him to veterans like Curtis Turner and Joe Weatherly, who ran as hard off the track as they did off of it. In the early 1980s, however, Richmond stood out. He was not from the South; he had not grown up slinging a stock car through the dirt on red-clay ovals. He had, in fact, never raced at all until he was 21. And just 10 years later, after making a splash in the Indianapolis 500 as a rookie, he was emerging as one of the brightest stars and greatest talents in NASCAR´s Winston Cup Series. Richmond´s star was bright, but its light went out too soon. As he neared stock car racing´s zenith, Richmond´s life took a tragic turn. A man who thrived on the affection he felt from those who enjoyed watching him compete spent his final months almost completely shut off from that world. Tim Richmond: The Fast Life and Remarkable Times of NASCAR´s Top Gun tells the memorable story of a born racer and how he raced headlong through life with the throttle wide open and his wheels burning rubber at almost every turn. 1.
