“Running is the ultimate faith healer,
restoring faith not only in oneself but also in life’s possibilities.”
I was gifted with the book, My Life on the Run by Bart Yasso last year. It was such a sweet gesture as the book included a personal message to me from the author on the inside jacket. Thank you Cheri Cope from the Athletic Mind for this gift. I love Yasso’s wisdom (and humor) revealed in this book. It’s really a memoir about the challenges and rewards of running. My favorite segment was about a race in the Chitwan National Park in Nepal where Yasso was chased by an agitated rhinoceros. Its laugh-out-loud funny and I appreciated the photos sprinkled throughout the book. I believe newbie and seasoned runners would adore this book.
My family teases me that I believe that running solves all life’s problems. If I hear someone complaining about an ache or pain, I recommend they go for a run. Someone sad? Go run. Contemplating a big decision? Mull it over while running. The list of ailments that running cures… well its endless (at least in my humble opinion – of course you can substitute any activity that you love: yoga, biking, etc.). To prove my point, I framed my prized author autograph today as Mr. Yasso seemingly proves my theory!
