Read an Excerpt

I wanted the book to be about life. And as running is such a big part of my life, it turned into a book about life told from a running perspective—what running means to me, where it has taken me, what it has given to me, and continues to give me every day. It’s a declaration of my love to running. And yes, because running is life, it’s also a declaration of my love to life itself.

I have run thousands of miles thus far in my life. I cannot share every step, but I will tell you about some of the steps that have meant something to me in different ways—in different places and at different times, as well as my thoughts about them. I hope it warms your heart to read these pages, and that I can impart both the desire to train and the tools to become a better runner. But above all, I hope I can offer you the inspiration to nurture and affirm your love for life and running.
