A stellar group of writers who run, people like Jeff Galloway, Lawrence Block, Kathrine Switzer, and Ben Tanzer, have come together to bring you an entertaining collection of stories and articles inspired by our common passion for running.
The 27th Mile is dedicated to everyone who loves running or runners—first and foremost to those who were killed or injured at the marathon, but also to the people who, even as they eat dinner with their family, put in another eight hours at work, or sit and read this book, have already planned when they’ll go out for their next run.
Ray Charbonneau, the editor of The 27th Mile, is the author of a number of books on running. That number is currently four.
Ray has run more than thirty marathons and ultramarathons, including one and a half 100 mile races, without winning a single one. But there's always tomorrow.
Ray's work has appeared in the Boston Globe, the Christian Science Monitor, Ultrarunning, Marathon & Beyond, Level Renner, Cool Running and other publications. Find out more at www.y42k.com.
Ray lives in Arlington, MA with his wife and their two cats. You can often find Ray and Ruth out on the streets running, but Felix and Phoebe stay inside.
