Item description for The Courage to Run: Inspiration for Winning the Race of Your Life by Jim Ryun...

Congressman Jim Ryun knows firsthand what it means to battle adversity. In his third Olympic Games, he was tripped by another runner and knocked unconscious. Rather than considering himself a failure, Ryun, now inducted into the Track and Field Hall of Fame, has continued to run the race of life with courage and integrity. In these 60 devotional readings, Ryun and his sons and co-authors invite you to consider your own life journey, and offer practical principles to live by that will help you negotiate the bumps and hurdles along the way. Through personal anecdotes and stories from history and Scripture, you?ll be encouraged to risk and to be obedient to what God calls you to do. Discover how small beginnings can lead to great achievements. Find out why it?s important to have a game plan, and to stick with it. Each inspiring reading will challenge you to think about your own goals and motivations, and make needed course corrections. These engaging, character-building devotions will inspire you to new levels of achievement!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Courage to Run: Inspiration for Winning the Race of Your Life?

Very uplifting!  Jan 15, 2007
Beautifully written. This book is one I'll give as a gift and know they'll love it! Congressman Ryun truly has a way with words that is passionate, but never stoops to being "sappy."
Kind of a let down  Jan 5, 2007
I got the book on a recommendation from a radio personality working on the local sports station KFAN. Anyway, he had dropped some weight when he started running and credited the book indicating it would "change your life". I bought it and did not finish it. Jim Ryan is an awesome person - his story is quite amazing and I can appreciate the value people find in their Bible, religion, tithing, etc. If you find strength in the Bible or like biographys and can relate to Jesus this would be a great book for you.
