Running For My Life

This is a slight book review. To be honest I started reading this book with all intentions of finishing  but I didn't. I lost some interest in it. Probably because life got complicated and I just am not disciplined to pick it up again at least for right now. God is telling me to pick up another book (well a list of books) which are on booksneeze. Which if you don't know is an amazing site where bloggers can go choose a book, read it, and write a review and then choose another. Please don't do a review like this one. I honestly normally finish all the books on there site. My next review will be a lot better I promise. 

Here is the book>

Here is the description found on Thomas Nelson site,
"Running for My Life is not a story about Africa or track and field athletics. It is about outrunning the devil and achieving the impossible faith, diligence, and the desire to give back. It is the American dream come true and a stark reminder that saving one can help to save thousands more.
Lopez Lomong chronicles his inspiring ascent from a barefoot lost boy of the Sudanese Civil War to a Nike sponsored athlete on the US Olympic Team. Though most of us fall somewhere between the catastrophic lows and dizzying highs of Lomong's incredible life, every reader will find in his story the human spark to pursue dreams that might seem unthinkable, even from circumstances that might appear hopeless."

This book is a book i will read in the future. Just right now God wants me to read other books.
