Thank you for hanging out with me! From day to day you never know what life will throw at you. And it will often be this way in my blog as well :) But lest RUN WILD and LIVE FREE in this amazing adventure together!
Deena does an amazing job in this book. It was nothing like what I expected. I figured it would be another book of “take this step you will see this result” as it is geared toward having a positive mind set. But I was totally wrong!
Deena takes you through your running life and journey. The ups and downs from a young age to her adulthood and family. The struggles of not only being an elite athlete but also meeting the needs and expectations of family and friends.
I loved reading about her passion for the sport of running. How she talks about connecting with the earth and nature around her on her runs. One chapter she spoke about how the earth and her feet worked together to push her forward and be faster (you will have to read the book to fully understand). On my next run I had fun focusing on this concept and I felt faster. I by all means am not fast like her but it was fun looking at my running in this way and feeling the difference.
I also really loved how she explained how she would use mental games to make races be challenging in the way she needed them to be. I would often find myself lost in her story and not being able to put the book down. I simply didn’t want it to end.
Upon completion of the book I feel like I know Deena. Like I am a friend and that if I ever did meet her in person that we could be instant friends because of the journey she took me on of her life in her book.
This is a must read! Especially for anyone who likes to be active. You will find much inspiration though the chapters of this book. Even if all you take away is how to find gratitude in each day, that is a win!
