Jun 24, 2015Running and Life is a short motivational read about how going through life is akin to running a race. As the title states, the book uses running as a parallel to life’s particular ups and downs. I found this short book not only realistic but very applicable as well. Nothing in the book was relatively new information but the book was special nonetheless because it was taken from a different perspective. The book was influential because it was personal. Because the author put so much of himself in the book, it made the message he was trying to relay to his readers more poignant and in tune to life situations. I found myself agreeing with a lot of the authors’ insights and suggestions. The book was broad enough to relate to a large audience yet peculiar enough to connect with an individual. Another thing that made this short book such a great read is that the book was not just meant to motivate but to also teach an individual how to start making personal changes. The book was filled with... More > useful tips and tools that the reader could use to begin allowing those personal transformations to take place. The author also pointed to several inspirational people as a place of reference that the reader could turn to for additional encouragement. The overall message of the book was one of inspiration and personal determination. The message pushes one past feeling better to one doing better.< Less
Jun 19, 2015I am passionate about reading books but usually end up disliking self-help books because I generally don't find them practical. However, the best thing about 'Running and Life" is that it offers practical advice and tips that can be implemented in our life. I would recommend people to read this book, particularly if you are looking for inspiration. Great read :)
Jun 19, 2015The book is a very inspiring one, it speaks of the author’s life as a runner, his struggles and thriumphs, challenges and trials and what he did to overcome them. It is encouraging to note that in every difficulty he faced, he came out with flying colors, mainly because I believe he is an optimistic person basing from the pieces of advice that he injected in his writings. Running and life intertwined, whatever problems we might encounter is a test of our faith and endurance. I admire the way he correlated his running problem with life in general, and what is retained in my mind is this, to never lose hope because every difficulty or challenge we face in life is something we can always overcome, that there is always a solution to every trial we face. I give this book a thumbs-up! Great one!
Jun 17, 2015I have read different types of book about life, live and I always love to read whenever I get some extra time. This is one of the best book I have read ever for getting inspire of life. Clear, ample and filled with lots of tips, tricks and advices. If you don't know how to start and where to run and what is the target you are running for then this is the perfect book for you. Thumb up!
Jun 17, 2015Running and life have two things in common: easy to learn and difficult to master. Reading "Running & Life" not only teaches you about both things, but opens up more things to learn about the two. This book carries the perspective of greeting the finish line successfully with a smile on your face, with short but meaningful examples and principles. Every runner- those who are just starting out their passion to run, or those who are in their down moments looking for an inspiration to get back on track- should read this book. The author took great care in establishing the similarities between finishing with flying colors in a race and achieving the best life, as well as the shared factors that contribute to them. What struck me the most was the part where the author, Stuart Macadam, expresses the power of being intentional in achieving one's goal: that behavior, contrary to popular belief, is not something that one should lose power over. This is one of the primary problems... More > many young people lose sight of today. Emotions are a natural reaction, but they should not dictate one's course of action. I believe it's a powerful key to compelling yourself to action than just being passive about your objectives. That point of view, along with the carefully-structured layout of points to consider in joining the race to success, makes for a light yet interesting read that would most probably open your eyes to other ways of perceiving the sport of running. While it's not a detailed training manual to making sure you get record-breaking achievements nor an in-depth "for dummies" guaranteed guide to being brilliant, it's an excellent place to begin to learn some valuable insights. Things such as when to assess yourself, your views, and tackling both life and running, to win them and know for yourself that you've done well, and did your best.< Less
