I had to have it.
All the posts on this blog somehow relate to running, more often than not a lot of those posts also relate to the spiritual side of my running.
I was very excited when the opportunity arose to review The Runner’s Devotional. Running and God? Yes please.
I have not read the whole devotional, but I feel that I can acurrately review it. I wanted to read the whole thing before I opened the cover, but once I started reading it, I wanted to treasure this little gem for a whole year.
If you have ever read or started to read a devotional, you probably know that if it does not grab you in the first couple of days, it was a waste of money. It should not feel like a chore to read. It should feel like something you enjoy reading. I enjoy this book.
The authors Dana Niesluchowski, and Dave Veerman have run marathons – they understand fitness. Dana is a mom to a young son. I feel like I can connect with them.
The book is broken up into 52 weeks, with a training log space after every week. You can read a whole week at once or you can read some each day according to their suggested way to divide it up. There are stories, there are Bible passages, there are sections on The Runner, The Race, The Result and *Think It Through* section, which is one of my favorites.
My copy is already strewn with highlighted sections, which means you know I love it.
If you are a Christian runner or runner who wants to learn more about Christ you will enjoy this devotional!
