The Runner’s Devotional by Dana Niesluchowski and Dave Veerman
I have to admit right from the start that I am not a runner. I am a walker. I love to walk and do so on a regular basis. I didn’t think there was that much difference between running and walking (other than going faster) until I read this book.
Although not a runner I still benefited from and enjoyed reading this book. I can’t imagine a real runner not liking and receiving encouragement from The Runner’s Devotional.
Set up as a weekly devotional, it has 52 chapters, one for each week. The topics of discussion are in a logical forward progression—purpose, goal, plan, get advice, etc. The entire book seemed extremely motivational to me. Another confession: it did not motivate me to move from being a walker to a runner but I would not believe that someone who was already a runner would not receive motivation to keep going from this book!
Each week there is included a story of a contributor’s experience with running. Runners are sure to relate to several of these stories. Also included are questions to ask yourself. (As a personal coach I love questions and always find them of great value.)
The part I liked the best though, was the way the authors related every topic around running back to our spiritual lives. Perfect!
If you are a Christian runner, would like motivation to keep running and most of all would like to take advantage of your running experiences by learning scriptural lessons through them, this book is for you.
