Product Description

The inspiring true story of Lopez Lomong, a Sudanese "lost boy" who achieved his dream ofbeing an American citizen and Olympic athlete. He was abducted. He was beaten. And he was nearly forced to become a boy solider in his war-torn homeland, Sudan. But he escaped in the night, ran three days, and was taken into a refugee camp in Kenya. He never owned a pair of shoes. He never owned a pen and paper and did schoolwork in the dust with his fingertips. His boyhood was the daily struggle of an orphan, and each day he would run an eighteen mile lap around the refugee camp just to play a game of soccer. In his wildest dreams, Lopez Lomong couldn't even conceive that Nike would one day be his official sponsor, that he would graduate from college, and that he would represent his new home and bear the American flag in the Summer Olympics.

Running for My Life is Lopez Lomong's harrowing story of loss, overcoming, triumph, and redemption. It is the once-in-a-lifetime story of a Sudanese lost boy who became an American citizen and Olympic athlete. His life is a powerful picture that we can overcome, that what seems out of reach is within our grasp if we'd believe and if we'd only try. A story of faith, and a story that captures the best of humanity, Running for My Life will arrest the hearts and inspire the hopes of readers everywhere.

Unabridged MP3-CD; 1 MP3-CD; read by Brandon Hirsch.

Publisher's Description

Running for My Life is not a story about Africa or track and field athletics. It is about outrunning the devil and achieving the impossible through faith, diligence, and the desire to give back. It is the American dream come true and a stark reminder that saving one can help to save thousands more.

Lopez Lomong chronicles his inspiring ascent from a barefoot lost boy of the Sudanese Civil War to a Nike-sponsored athlete on the US Olympic Team. Though most of us fall somewhere between the catastrophic lows and dizzying highs of Lomong’s incredible life, every listener will find in his story the human spark to pursue dreams that might seem unthinkable, even from circumstances that might appear hopeless.

"Lopez Lomong’s story is one of true inspiration. His life is a story of courage, hard work, never giving up, and having hope where there is hopelessness all around. Lopez is a true role model.” —Michael Johnson, Olympic Gold Medalist

"This true story of a Sudanese child refugee who became an Olympic star is powerful proof that God gives hope to the hopeless and shines a light in the darkest places. Don’t be surprised if after reading this incredible tale, you find yourself mysteriously drawn to run alongside him.” —Richard Stearns, president, World Vision US and author of The Hole in Our Gospel
