Run to Overcome ~ Meb Keflezighi

This is a book about a man who is so humble and a true inspiration that everyone should read this book. It is the story of Meb and how he was born in the poor country of Eritrea, to better his family his father finds a way to move his family to the United States and they all become citizens. The background of this family is amazing coming from a very poor country and not being able to speak English, they had nothing but their faith in GOD.

The hard work, spiritual belief and willingness to put in very long hours of studying has made Meb what he is today. Meb never thought of becoming a runner, in a PE class one day his teacher saw something in him and that is what started his career in running. Meb is a very humble man as he never had his eyes on always winning, it was always about doing the best that you can do. The book tells the story of his running history and his competitions. He has many struggles but always leaves it in GOD hands and shows great obedience to his beliefs.

I didn't expect this story to be so touching to my heart and such an inspiration. This book shows that it isn't about always winning it is how you run the race.
