Running and runners have the ability to do amazing things.
Running is an excellent example of self-discipline and determination.
Consider Mississippi's Felix Shipp, pictured below. He went from fat to fast, clocking a 3:49 marathon.
Below Felix is Father Christopher Zelonis, a Roman Catholic priest, who, on Sunday qualified for the Boston Marathon by turning in a marathon time of 3:08:46.
I was honored to tell the stories of both of these remarkable men in my latest book, "Personal Best." http://muldowneyrunning.com/
Read about their remarkable journeys in the chapter entitled "Extraordinary."
Personal Best is available on my webpage, listed above, where I will personally sign a copy for you, and at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Lulu.com. It is also available at those sites in eBook form.
Personal Best is a perfect gift for the runner on your Holiday shopping list.
