Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners (Giveaway)

101 inspirational stories of Energy, Endurance and Endorphins ~ Runners.

I am not a runner.  I’m not even a jogger.  You might find me walking at a brisk pace on occasion, but even then, I’d never be confused with an ultramarathoner.  Amazingly enough, I was still inspired by the stories within Chicken Soup for the Soul: Runners

The 101 stories inside its pages tell the stories of perseverance, commitment and strength.  Those that have fallen, and gotten back up, and those that never thought they’d cross a finish line of a 50 yard dash, no less a 20 mile marathon, that did.

What you’ll notice when reading these short snippets of truth, is not that they are really about running at all, but that they are about the core of what makes them a runner.  The determination to get up each day, and train to go just that much farther, or that much faster.  It’s aim is to help people, whether they are runners or not, to set that elusive goal and then go for it and make it happen.

Of course I’m sure the stories resonate more with those who actually do move a bit faster than I do, but nonetheless if you’re Chicken Soup for the Soul fan, this is another good one to add to your collection.

If you have a track star in your family, an aspiring cross country athlete, or a casual jogger, this would make a fantastic gift to help spur them on for just one more mile.
