Publisher's Summary

"Most of the serious thinking I have done over the past 20 years has been done while running," says philosophy professor Rowlands, who has run for most of his life. And for him, running and philosophizing are inextricably connected.

In Running with the Pack, he reveals the most significant runs of his life - from the entire day he spent running as a boy in Wales, to the runs along French beaches and up Irish mountains with his beloved wolf, Brenin, and through Florida swamps with his dog, Nina. Intertwined with this honest, passionate, and witty memoir are the fascinating meditations that those runs triggered, including mortality, midlife, and the meaning of life.

A highly original and moving book that will make the philosophically inclined want to run, and make those who love running become intoxicated by the beauty of philosophy.

Thought provoking

I found this audio book to be be very thought provoking and I intend to listen to it again. It is primarily a pop-philosophy book with anecdotes from running experience thrown in. Definitely not very educational about running itself. I found it highly enjoyable.
