    On the morning of December 22, 2005, New York City firefighter Matt Long was cycling to work when he was struck by and sucked under a 20-ton bus making an illegal turn. The injuries he sustained pushed him within inches of death. Miraculously, after five months in the hospital and more than 40 operations, Matt was able to start his recovery. This book chronicles Matt's road to recovery as he teaches himself to walk again and, a mere three years later, to run in the 2008 New York City Marathon.

    Sarah says: "Only 1/2 way through and loving it"
    "Not just a book about running....."

    Where does The Long Run rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Easily, among the top 3.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Long Run?

    There are so many to recall. Probably the final chapters where Matt Long describes his experience running the NY Marathon.


    Which character – as performed by Matthew Del Negro – was your favorite?

    Matthew Long


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    Being a new runner, this book transformed my outlook toward running. Here I was with my niggling injuries and doubts, and then you had Matt Long, going through what he did, and not just recovering from his accident, but pushing through all obstacles and actually completing the NY marathon and the Ironman. Pure grit !!
