It is summer and the hay and silage have not yet been made on John Connell’s farm, so he has time to indulge his great passion: running. As he runs across woodlands, fields and tiny roads in his native Longford, he tells the story of his life and contemplates Ireland’s history, old and new.

Told in 42 chapters, each another kilometre in his long-distance race, this part memoir, part essay captures what it is to undertake a marathon moment by moment, in body and mind.
