If there was one complaint, which isn't really a complaint, I wish the Long Run was longer since it was such a great story.
Mishka Shubaly used running to help him escape serious addiction. This man nearly destroyed his health and, to most people, would have seemed in no way prepared to become a long distance runner, yet he did so, and then went on to run ultras. It's a great underdog story.
After all he went through, if he can accomplish these things, we've got no excuse. The odds were stacked against him in ALL regards and yet he became a rockstar runner. This book is about more than just running. It's about the strength of the human spirit, endurance, friendship, and self-sufficiency. And the way Shubaly writes is beautiful. His story may be gritty, but his words make you compelled to keep reading. And to top it off, he's refreshingly unpretentious. Mishka has every right to be prideful, but he's far from it. This was an excellent book. What I took away from it was the therapeutic power of running and fitness in general, and the fact that no matter how bad our lives get or how low we've sunk, there's always a way back up.
Mishka's caring for Lon and then going back to round up "superdad" was enough to bring me to tears at the end. In my opinion, this story should be used as an inspiration for anyone suffering from an addicitve personality. There are many different addiciton's. Food, sugar, smoking, shopping, sex, you name it, ...whatever ones addicition, Mishka has shared an amazing personal experience that truly should be applauded with extreme admiration and used as a model proving the power of the mind.
It was incredibly heroic for Miska to have shared this personal story! This is just the kind of guy, should he stay sober, who will end up being the next Steve Jobes. He'll focus on whatever catches his interest and take it way outside of the box! I can't wait to read what comes next from Miska!
