I loved reading Ryan Hall's book about his career as a runner.
This interview with him was just as edifying.
In both the book and the interview, Ryan shows us what it's like to be a Christian in the very competitive world of marathon racing. That entails things like reaching outside our small group of friends, being more open about sharing our faith, and setting a positive example for the next generation. In other words, it means living the gospel -- being the "Good News" and giving to Christ what little we have because he can take it and multiply it.
Christ told us to be a light in our own corner of the world. I'm grateful that Ryan and his wife Sarah (also a marathon champion) are truly that. All glory to God.
