  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.

Running for My Life: One Lost Boy's Journey from the Killing Fields of Sudan to the Olympic Games Running for My Life: One Lost Boy's Journey from the Killing Fields of Sudan to the Olympic Games
By Lopez Lomong (Author), Mark Tabb (Author)
Running 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.
"Lopez Lomong's story is one of true inspiration. His life is a story of courage, hard work, never giving up, and having hope where there is hopelessness all around. Lopez is a true role model." ?MICHAEL JOHNSON, Olympic Gold Medalist
"This true story of a Sudanese child refugee who became an Olympic star is powerful proof that God gives hope to the hopeless and shines a light in the darkest places. Don't be surprised if after reading this incredible tale, you find yourself mysteriously drawn to run alongside him." - RICHARD STEARNS, president, World Vision US and author of THe Hole in Our Gospel
