Author's Message

My book will show you there's always hope with God. It will show you how my life went from being troubled to spending the vast majority of my younger years in and out of penitentiaries until at my lowest point I called on God and was ultimately led to running. I've since made numerous friends and found the running community to not only be a positive group of people but a group I've grown to love like family. I've found strong revelations while on the run and it's not just a form of exercise but a lifestyle. I've had the pleasure of meeting some very big names in the running industry along the way and they're as down to Earth as you or me. Anyone that you may know that's struggling with a troubled life may be lifted or given hope by my transformation.

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I was adopted at birth . I got on drugs growing up which ultimately landed me in and out of penitentiary's for the majority of my early years . I got saved while serving a 15 year sentence and God led me to running . My life's been completely different every since .

    What was your motivation behind this project?  To show others in a similar situation that there's a better way . God's always there , we just have to call out to Him .

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I've been uplifted by messages I've received where it's inspired others . I always knew things happen for a reason and now I know I was meant to speak out .

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I really do love to watch the 700 Club which I'll be featured on in the near future .
