About The Result Is What You See Today: poems about running

The poems here are as varied and vibrant as running itself. Whether you're new to running or a seasoned athlete, and whatever your interest, you'll find words to inspire and entertain. – Jo Pavey MBE

Edited by poet-runners Ben Wilkinson, Kim Moore and Paul Deaton, The Result is What You See Today threads running and poetry through myriad routes, venturing into the how, why and where of a timeless human act.

This affirmative anthology shows that poetry and running have much in common, fulfilling a basic need to live freely, expressively and to feel alive. The poems gathered here reflect this freedom in all its forms: from the track to nature’s trails, from sprints to endurance, from near-spiritual moments of private connection to the buzz of competitive camaraderie.
