5.0 out of 5 stars Run To Overcome Will Inspire You!, May 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Run to Overcome: The Inspiring Story of an American Champion's Long-Distance Quest to Achieve a Big Dream (Hardcover)
Ever since I saw Meb conquer the 2009 NY marathon with the USA singlet on, I have been a huge fan! Hearing his story is inspiring, reading it firsthand in 'Run to Overcome' is a heartfelt look into Meb's life journey. Meb writes about his family's roots in Eritrea and how much his parents sacrificed to get him and his siblings to a safer environment. After years of separation and preparation, his father was able to get the family to Italy and ultimately the U.S. Meb's story is the essence of the American dream- immigrant comes to the land of opportunity, works hard, and can achieve anything he wants in life. The fact that he is now an Olympic silver medalist and one of the fastest endurance runners in the country is astonishing and wonderful. The other piece of this book that is wonderful to read is how close Meb is to his parents, siblings, wife, children, friends, and his coaches. He appears to be a genuinely caring person who is thankful to have a strong network of friends and family in his life and never takes them for granted. I loved this book and I hope to see Meb conquer many more races and goals in his lifetime. I would highly recommend this book to Meb fans, runners, and also to anyone looking for an inspiring read. It will make you want to do more with your life and be your best self.
