Run to Overcome
Tuesday, June 19, 2012
That sounds like a good title to a book doesn't it? That's because it is. It's a book written by Meb Keflezighi. I've read a few running books and for me the key is getting to know the runner as a person. I already know they are a great runner. I want to know what it took to become that runner. How was their life affected by it is a question that I typically wonder.
I posted my review of the book on another blog almost a week ago, but even now I find myself asking the question, "What do I run to overcome?" Running does improve my health and it makes me feel alive, but is that it? Do I want to inspire others to run? Of course, I do, but that's not the only thing. Is inspiring others enough? As my bro, JMERLAU once said, "I don't do this to just inspire others. I do this to change lives!"
As I embark to change lives, other lives are changed as well. It's like a domino effect. Being positive makes me feel good, but it spreads to those around me and I would think it spreads through them to others.
I recommend "Run to Overcome." My review has a video clip that many of you may have seen before. After reading the book, how you feel about that moment changes. Instead of watching and wondering what Meb is thinking, you know.
What do YOU run to overcome?!
