Mark Will-Weber released his second book, "The Running Trivia Book: 1001 Questions from the Sprints to the Marathons". The book was published by Breakaway Books, the same company that published Will-Weber's first book, "The Quotable Runner". In his new publication, the author has gathered a series of delightful trivia questions sure to entertain, perplex, and astonish everyone who loves running. They range from cross country to track to road races; sprinters to milers to marathoners, and everyone in between. This rich collection of trivia includes the great immortals of the sport, contemporary stars of the track world, pioneers from the mists of early running history, characters from running in literature, and even some hip-hop songs that celebrate runners. The questions vary from easy to medium to difficult, with a few brain-busters that might elude even the most hardened veteran of running trivia. There is an endless supply of running lore and legend in this joyous celebration of the sport. It is all good fun, a book that can be re-read with delight many times.
