Running for my Life is a book written by Lopez Lomong. The full title of this book is "Running for my Life: One Lost Boys Journey from the Killing Fields of Sudan to the Olympic Games. The title says it all, because it is just that.
It is the journey of one persons life, and how they went along from being in one place to another. From smaller things to bigger things, and ultimately achieving happiness.
This book is really inspirational. It makes the reader feel that anything is within your reach if you work to get it. Never let go of your dreams and work hard to achieve them.
Book DescriptionRunning 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.
