From the Back Cover:

Congressman Jim Ryun knows firsthand what it means to battle adversity. In his third Olympic Games, he was tripped by another runner and knocked unconscious.

In these 60 devotional readings, Ryun and his sons invite you to consider your own life journey, and offer practical principles to live by that will help you negotiate the bumps and hurdles along the way. Through personal anecdotes and stories from history and Scripture, you’ll be encouraged to risk and to be obedient to what God calls you to do. Discover how small beginnings can lead to great achievements. Find out why it’s important to have a game plan and to stick with it. Each inspiring reading will challenge you to think about your own goals and motivations, and make needed course corrections. These engaging, character-building devotions will inspire you to new levels of achievement!
