Publisher's Description

From the fastest American-born marathoner of all time, here is an intimate, day-by-day account of what it takes physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to be one of the best in the world. This journal chronicles Ryan Hall s 14-week preparation for the 2010 Boston Marathon, providing practical insights into the daily regimen of someone training at the absolute peak of human performance. It also reveals the spiritual journey of an elite athlete who is a follower of Jesus Christ.


Readers will discover how Ryan deals with nagging injuries and illness, bad weather, disappointing workouts, and a slavish focus on results that can take the fun out of running. Ryan runs 140 miles a week, often at altitude and a blistering pace. Yet millions of everyday runners will identify with and appreciate his intentional return to running with joy and his lifelong goal of glorifying Christ on and off the racecourse.

Publisher's Weekly

The fastest American-born marathoner of all time (2:06:17) offers an inside track on the day-to-day life of a runner, a life unglamorous and yet inspiring. His message is "even if you don't land on the podium or run a personal best, even if you have a bad workout or are struggling with an injury, you can experience joy to the fullest." The book chronicles a 14-week training journey to the Boston Marathon, providing helpful insights into training exercises, nutrition, and racing tips for runners. In high school Hall ran the mile in a state-record 4:02 after following advice from his father to rest before the race. "I would have never rested if it were left up to me, but I trusted my dad and took it easy," he writes. The reader gets inside the head of one of America's elite runners, learning about his relationship with his wife, who is also a professional runner, and his faith in God, the source of his joy even when he does not reach the podium. The narrative jumps around too much as it begins but settles into a steady pace for a powerful finish. (Feb.)Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
