Didn't expect it to be this good - good content, well-written, and practically useful.
If you need a boost in your own spiritual walk, or need to work on disciplining yourself to spend more time with God and in the word, read this. As an athlete myself, always trying to train my body for the best performance, I found this so helpful.

He connects training your body with training your mind, and ultimately, your heart. How you live physically can affect how you live spiritually.

Also, aside from the content, I found it very easy to listen to - like reading a good novel. I was really pleasantly surprised with this read. Don't miss out.

Middle of the pack
Here's my problem with this book. I'm in my mid-fifties, healthy, fit, still athletically involved, well read in scripture and apologetics and grateful for God's mercy in these and other areas of life. Essentially, I've run a lot of the race described in this book before the author even laced up his sneakers. There are better books on running. There are better books on apologetics. There are better books on following Jesus. The uniqueness of this audiobook is that it combines all three and the author does a decent job of that. All in all, not bad, not great, but sometimes crossing the finish line or at least giving it your best means more than winning.
