Synopsis

Witnessing the Egyptian revolution in 2011, chanting with the crowds “Bread, Freedom, Social Justice,” and living all its hopes and downfall, author and political activist A. I. Shoukry now finds himself in despair and fear to lose his freedom. He decided to take a break from politics and start running, but will he find freedom?

Shoukry describes his running moments like a window with a sunrise view for a prisoner kept in solitary confinement. This book isn’t just about running; It’s a memoir about self-discovery and searching for freedom and love of life. It's about the integration of body, mind, and soul. It’s about family and friends, relationships, and work.

From being barely able to run 500 meters, he became a half-marathon runner aged 39. In this book, Shoukry explores the meanings of faith, pain, stress, fear, death, life, solitude, happiness, and passion. He has truly put his heart on paper.

If you’ve ever dreamed of running—for your health, for your mind, for therapy, or even for parliament, this book is for you. Whether you’re a newbie runner, a seasoned pro, or have never donned a pair of running shoes but want to start—open this book and start running with Ahmed through Egypt.
