It is truly inspiring to read about what humans are capable of. It makes me want to go for a run and push my limits a little more every time I read this book. It can also be emotional at times. I have found myself crying about the ending of story while reading at the rink during my son's hockey game.... a little bit embarassing but all the more worth it because it reaches your deepest feelings.
I highly recommend this book.
But for a brief glimpse of time because of the Chicken Soup for the Soul - Runners book...I was able to see what "their" world was like.
Chicken Soup for the Soul books has an incredible way to highlight the very essence of their themes. They are able to illustrate the highs and lows of the life of a runner in this particular case.
While I don't ever see myself becoming a runner (of course, you should never say never)...I was deeply moved by the personal stories of triumph, determination and do-it spirit.
As always...another hit from Chicken Soup for the Soul.
I thoroughly expected to be mostly bored by the stories and anecdotes-- I was not. I literally had to force myself to put it down and save some for later.
It's not like some earth shattering, instant epiphany inducing text; but, it is good enough. And for 99.99% of life: "good enough" is just enough to be enough.

Cheesy, not really motivating, and actually kind of boring. Not one of those books that makes you want to go out and run. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Laura
