Product Description

La Búsqueda de Gobi es la milagrosa historia de Dion Leonard, un corredor de ultramaratones experimentado que se encontró con una perrita callejera mientras competía en una carrera de 155 millas a través del desierto de Gobi en China. La adorable cachorro, que luego nombró "Gobi", demostró que lo que le faltaba en tamaño, lo compensaba con el corazón. Gobi recorrió junto a Dion gigantescas dunas de arena y atravesó las montañas Tian Shan, aldeas y las arenas negras del desierto de Gobi, manteniendo el ritmo con él durante casi ochenta millas.

Dion fue testigo de la increíble determinación y corazón de Gobi, y se dio cuenta que su propio corazón experimentaba también un cambio. Dion permitía que Gobi durmiera en su tienda de campaña por las noches, le compartía agua y alimentos de sus propias provisiones limitadas, a veces también la cargaba, aun sabiendo que eso significaba retrasarse en la carrera, o peor aún, le impedería terminar en absoluto.

En las carreras anteriores de Dion, él se enfocaba en ganar y ser el mejor, pero esta vez su objetivo era asegurarse que su amistad con Gobi continuara mucho después de llegar a la meta. Sin embargo, antes de que pudiera llevarla a casa, Gobi desapareció en una inmensa ciudad china. Con la ayuda de desconocidos y el apoyo de gente alrededor del mundo, Dion inició la búsqueda para reencontrar al asombroso animal que le demostró a él y al mundo entero que los milagros son posibles.

Finding Gobi is the miraculous tale of Dion Leonard, a seasoned ultramarathon runner who crosses paths with a stray dog while competing in a 155-mile race through the Gobi Desert in China. The lovable pup, who would later earn the name Gobi, proved that what she lacked in size, she more than made up for in heart, as she went step for step with Dion over the Tian Shan Mountains, across massive sand dunes, through yurt villages and the black sands of the Gobi Desert, keeping pace with him for 77 miles.

As Dion witnessed the incredible determination and heart of this small animal, he found his own heart undergoing a change as well. Whereas in the past these races were all about winning and being the best, his goal now was to make sure he and Gobi’s friendship continued well after the finish line. He found himself letting Gobi sleep in his tent at night, giving her food and water out of his own limited supply, and carrying her across numerous rivers, even when he knew it would mean putting him behind in the race, or worse, prevent him from finishing at all.

Although Dion did not cross the finish line first, he felt he had won something even greater – a new outlook on life and a new friend that he planned on bringing home as soon as arrangements were made. However, before he could take her home, Gobi went missing in the sprawling Chinese city where she was being kept. Dion, with the help of strangers and a viral outpouring of assistance on the internet, set out to track her down, and reunite forever with the amazing animal that changed his life and proved to him and the world that miracles are possible.
