The Runner's Devotional Review

I had the chance to review The Runner’s Devotional: Inspiration and Motivation for Life’s Journey…On and Off the Road, by Dave Veerman and Dana Niesluchowski.  The book is a weekly devotional that starts with a short story with bible verse tie-in about a running topic, a story about a runner and her/his race (biblical tie-in) and result (how the topic and the runner relates biblically).  There is then another story about a different runner.  The Think It Through section presents some questions and On Running is strictly running advice.  Lines for journaling and a running log end each week's devotion.  There is a schedule that suggests how to divide up the sections for a reading each day of the week.   Training plans for 5K, 10K, half and full marathons are included.

The stories are inspirational, advice is solid and would be enjoyed by runners of all abilities.  If you are a runner looking for a light devotional and running log, this is a nice tool.

Disclaimer: Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
