Author: Gordon MacDonald
Publisher: Nashville : Nelson Books, ©2004.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Whose heart doesn't leap at the sight of a beautifully conditioned runner, effortlessly gliding along, stride-by-stride, mile-by-mile? And what runner gets to this place without a thankless-and often lonely-regimen of strategy and self-denial? Isn't this the perfect metaphor of what your heart is longing for-running life's race with intentionality and grace? With strength and focus?
