☯ Full Synopsis : "A little over a year ago, Darcy Wakefield was a single, 33-year-old, athletic, workaholic English professor, a vegetarian who had never had a serious health problem or injury. Then she was diagnosed with ALS, and her world turned upside down. I Remember Running is Darcy's story of change and loss and challenges during her first year with ALS, as she struggles to make sense of her diagnosis and redefine herself in the face of this terminal illness. With unflagging courage, wit, and eloquence, Darcy shares what she calls her "fast-forward" life, a life in which she applies for disability, leaves her job, and plans her own funeral as well as meets and moves in with her true love, buys a house, and gives birth to her first child in less time than it takes most of us to accomplish even one of these things. Beautifully written and wholly inspiring, I Remember Running proves that it is possible to live a rich, meaningful life after being diagnosed with a terminal illness. This book will move readers to see the world in a different light."Article| Darcy Wakefield| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : I Remember Running
☯ Full Synopsis : "I Remember Running is a story about freedom. It is the tale of a wearying race against formidable odds that it will never be within the grasp of one Lorrie Dean LeMay. Fourteen years in hiding under witness protection, a daring reappearance to join her sweetheart, then a hostile interruption of her wedding by ruthless kidnappers, followed by weeks of guilt-laden mourning, all painfully suggest that she will never know freedom. Young Lorrie Dean had surfaced simply as an act of grace to appease Andy Boone, a childhood sweetheart, reportedly searching for her. Now, confined again in the vile hands of hard core criminals, she questions whether she will ever know freedom and, more fearfully, whether she will even live to seek it. She is painfully aware that physical torture is just two days away if she refuses to reveal the whereabouts of her mother. Though resigned to death, she is determined to make one all-or-nothing attempt to get away, knowing full well that even if it works, she still will not know freedom. Then, miraculously, one morning she is running for her life. Although Lorrie Dean and Andy would be together again one day and would soon seal their steadfast love, a new level of torture was just beginning. Now, even their unbridled love was marked for grim trial. That love, so carefree and natural when it began four months ago, was rapidly growing into an ominous burden. At this point, Lorrie Dean was a prisoner of herself, her emotions?her overwhelming sense of guilt. This turns out to be her most devastating captivity. Suddenly, there was another demon lose in her life, a daunting dread of what may be just around the corner. Could Andy's abiding love resurrect her? Could anything? There was one dim hope and it lay in the absorbing friendship she and Andy shared with a little seventeen-year-old girl, down on the farm. Enter Kelly Surrat."Article| Vernon Bargainer| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Running for the Hills
☯ Full Synopsis : "Before Horatio Clare was born, his parents fell in love with a place -- a remote sheep farm in Wales, physically and in every other way far from the lives they were forging as young professionals in London. The farm was high up a mountain, nearly impassable in winter. The neighbors were surly, or perhaps just unused to foreigners. But the setting was breathtaking, and soon it changed Jenny's and Robert's lives. What began as the somewhat conventional dream of a young, ambitious couple from London looking for a weekend home quickly became a different vision. Horatio's mother, romantic and tenacious, found it impossible to leave the fierce and beautiful land. She abandoned her job, her social world, and eventually her marriage to raise her two sons in the company of a herd of sheep, a few dogs, and the badgers, foxes, and mice who had prior claim to her new world. While other boys were going to films and listening to rock music, Horatio was weaning ewes and watching weather and surviving the furor of irascible neighbors. His childhood was marked by wonder and joy, and it is that wonderment that he bestows upon the reader as he recounts the story of the ancient, sometimes brutal, way of life on a hill farm. This wise book is a moving tribute to his mother, both beautiful and brave."Article| Horatio Clare| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Running Through the Wall
☯ Full Synopsis : "WHAT’S IT LIKE TO RUN FOR 30, 50, OR 100 MILES? This book is a great inspiration not only to current ultrarunners, and to marathoners looking for the next challenge—but also to runners of all abilities, who will see that there is nothing you can’t do if you have the desire. What makes ultrarunners tick? What goes through their minds at mile 93? How can you train for such a colossal undertaking? These questions and many more are answered in this inspiring collection of 39 personal stories from ultramarathoners. Ultramarathoning is the logical next step for those who burn with a desire to explore their limits, and beyond. It is impossible to run ultra distances without coming away with at least one fascinating story. This book is full of them. There are stories of fatigue, blisters, nausea, and despair. But the ultrarunner prevails to find hope, love, healing, self-discovery, friendship, selflessness, and in the end, for most, triumph. Learn what it feels like to run an ultra from the champions, the newcomers, and the veterans of the sport. A few brief excerpts: “I left Edinburg witnessing my second sunrise on this run. Most ultrarunners dread dawn—the hours from 4:00 to 6:00 a.m.—primarily because this is when fatigue sets in.” —Keith Knipling “It would be hours before we’d see the first aid station, and probably close to two days before we’d have dry feet again!” —Deb Pero “I’m 95 miles into a 100-miler, it’s over 100 degrees out, my legs are shot, I’m a few scant minutes ahead of Ann and Gabriel, and my pacer is stopped dead in the trail for fear of a skunk?” —Tim Twietmeyer “Ultrarunning is without question the most feared aspect of adventure racing.” —Ian Adamson “The urge to quit right there was overwhelming, but I was still in the race. Perhaps a miracle would happen and I could get in under the four hours it would take to make the next cutoff. I thanked the aid station captain and plunged into the darkness.” —Will Brown “It was time to put all the viable excuses aside and look inside.” —Tracy Baldyga “I think I quit about 20 times during the race, mostly between the time the sun went down and the time that I finally walked away. Reality sets in when it gets dark. The trail gets lonely.” —Jason Hodde “During every race you are faced with a moment of truth, a point in the race when you either quit or persevere to the end. Every person who finishes an ultramarathon has accomplished a great feat, simply because they finished.” —Bethany Hunter"Article| Neal Jamison| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Life Is A Marathon
☯ Full Synopsis : "Life Is a Marathon Running promotes healthy living. Running marathons is a worldwide phenomenon. More and more people are training for and completing the ultimate running distance, 26.2 miles or 42 kilometers in a day, while they are still standing, alive, coherent, and in need of no medical attention. Running marathons requires careful preparation, planning, and execution. The runner needs a lot of patience and internal mental fortitude to do well. Many principles of running apply to those of living a committed Christian life. In living a Christian life, you need the assurance that Jesus loves you. Christ living in you transforms your life. Living a Christian life requires patience, endurance, and discipline. Both Christians and runners experience highs and lows, as well as expected and unexpected turns of events. Sometimes the road is lonely and wearying, but it ultimately ends in inexpressible joy to those who find themselves at the finish line to receive their reward. However, while running may yield temporal and perishable rewards, living a Christian life brings eternal and everlasting rewards. Life Is a Marathon contains information that may transform your life."Article| D. Chongo Mundende| Statement ..."
