Ultramarathon Man

Reading Christian books takes me a lot longer than I can read biographies or fiction.  I started a book yesterday called "50/50: Secrets I Learned Running 50 Marathons in 50 Days" by a crazy guy called Dean Karnazes, which I finished this morning.  Its part of my recent excitement and passion with running.  Im doing a typical Harvey, jump on a hobby, read, research, get the gear and crank it hard.  One of the things I really want to try and do is stick at this...  argghhh...

Anyway, the book is a great read, i've highlighted lots of different bits that I think we can pull and apply to the christian walk.  A great line from one of the guys that took part in one of the 50 marathons; "my biggest fear was wondering whether or not I could finish it, but it was when I stopped and thought about it... the only way I would fail is if I didnt come out and try".

Go Team (warning; this may be the first of many Tony Robbinsesque posts on running)

In other news, I thought this was absolutely spot on...
