After a decade-long addiction to crack cocaine and alcohol, Charlie Engle hit bottom with a near-fatal sic-day binge that ended in a hail of bullets. As Engle got sober, he turned to running, which became his lifeline, his pastime, and his salvation. He began with marathons, and when marathons weren't enough, he took on ultramarathons, races that went for thirty-five, fifty, and sometimes hundreds of miles through the most unforgiving places on earth. His growing notoriety led to an investigation and a subsequent unjust conviction for mortgage fraud, and he served sixteen months in federal prison. Once again, he sought running to help him through. Gripping, propulsive, raw, and surprising, Running Man is a triumphant story about finding the threshold of human endurance, and transcending it.
