Christian recording artist, JJ Heller has a blog where she is chronicling her journey to train for a 1/2 marathon and recently blogged about Lopez. She said she couldn't put the book down...anything that might potentially inspire me to run, I just about try. I requested it as quickly as I could from the library and dug in as soon as it was in my hands and didn't stop till I had finished it. If only I could run and read. Anywhoo, I highly encourage you to get the book, so worth it, and it might even help inspire you to run. I am working on becoming a runner. The farthest I've gone so far is 5 miles.
What I've learned about running so far:
One foot in front of the other, without falling off the treadmill, and focusing on something other than how much farther you have to go is the best way to run.
"...And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." -Hebrew 12:1
"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."Philippians 4:13
