Nearly every human on the planet learns to walk as a toddler and run shortly thereafter. Many go on to run recreationally or even competitively, but never learn to fully utilize their bodies’ potential. Kevin Everett provides a path to create more mindful and purposeful walking, running, and ultimately moving throughout life toward personal health empowerment. The Heart of Running takes the reader on a journey to discover the “runner’s high” or “flow state.” That sense of purpose and mindful motion gives anyone the edge needed to complete the marathon, competition, steep hill or even simple walk with a stroller in tow with better physical performance and metaphysical benefits. Once a runner, walker, athlete, parent or child learns to harness and maintain that edge, a passion is built to attain a constant and reliable form of self-satisfaction. The Heart of Running places the reader on a path to achieve the runner’s high every time.

The runner’s high is a marvelous side-effect of running, though mysterious and elusive. Sometimes you get it; usually you don’t. These forty-seven personal stories explore it in depth and detail, from euphoria to religious visions and mindblowing out-of-body experiences. One constant through these stories is an overwhelming sense of joy and awe at the infinite possibilities of the human body and soul. A man experiences a joyful downhill run as pure flight, unhindered freefall. One woman finds that breathing during running is an act of prayer. A runner on a tropical beach finds her surroundings metamorphosing surreally before her eyes. One man out on his daily run experiences a flash of utter peace and universal clarity—a moment that he later realizes occurred at precisely the time his father passed away. The runner’s high leads one man onward to find an even higher power: true, honest love. And the ultimate story is from a man in a maximum-security prison, who, during his runs in his tiny concrete cell, finds himself beyond all walls and iron bars. This dazzling celebration of running as a spiritual experience will inspire people of all abilities to explore the metaphysical side of running.

In -Chasing the Runner's High-, Ray Charbonneau tells the story how he pushed his addiction to running up to, and then past, his limits. There are plenty of hard miles, but there's lots of fun along the way too as Ray shares what he learned, what he should have learned, and what he still has to learn from running. Marshall Ulrich, 4-time winner of the Badwater Ultramarathon and author of -Running on Empty-, calls Chasing the Runner's High -a look at one man's life and obsession with running and addictive behaviors. Humorous at times, but always looking toward the greater good, Ray shares life's ups and downs and provides a hard look into the mind of a runner, offering advice that can only be had with experience and hard fought miles underfoot. Adena Schulzberg, winner of the 2006 Arkansas Marathon, writes, -these are brutally honest tales, told with candor and frankness about strength, courage, obsession, desire and hard won understanding of self and sport.- It's a great read for runners or for non-runners who want to understand their running friends. www.y42k.com/books/chasingtherunnershigh.html

Havey reveals everyone has the potential to enjoy more joyful and flow-driven running, no matter your experience, pace, or sporting ambitions.

Over 35 million people will go running this year in the United States alone. For some of us, it's more than just a hobby-over 11 million of us are runaholics. Runners and addicts. Addicts and runners. The two hardly seem to go together . . . unless you're one of those people who periodically put a couple of miles on your running shoes and then think things like, Boy, this feels good. I could go all day long. Then you do. Or at least try to. Running and addiction--as in running addiction--do indeed go together like chocolate and peanut butter, as Wired to Run makes so perfectly clear. Written by Scoop Skupien, a habitual runner for the past 30 years and the founder of Runaholics Anonymous, Wired to Run is a humorous trip through the world of runaholics and a host of issues that the running obsessed can't quite leave in their dust. It's a good-natured satire of healing groups that will keep readers--whether they're runners or run enablers--laughing page after breathless page. Central to the book and the whole online Runaholics Anonymous organization is Skupien's 12-Step program for recognizing and dealing with this mental and very physical disorder. From We admit that we are powerless over running to We reach the Pinnacle: the ability to run in moderation, the self-help style mixes laughs with actual training tips and other helpful advice. The combination-along with hilarious analysis of six different running types that encompass just about anyone who's ever broken a sweat--pokes great fun at runners, their odd habits, and their running rituals. It's definitely fun on the run!

*Shortlisted for the 2019 William Hill Sports Book of the Year* Marathons are no longer enough. Pain is to be relished, not avoided. Hallucinations are normal. Ultra running defies conventional logic. Yet this most brutal and challenging sport is now one of the fastest-growing in the world. Why is this? Is it an antidote to modern life, or a symptom of a modern illness? Adharanand Finn travelled to the heart of the sport to find out - and to see if he could become an ultra runner himself. His journey took him from the deserts of Oman to the snow-capped peaks of the Rockies, and on to his ultimate goal, the 105-mile Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. The Rise of the Ultra Runners is the electrifying, inspirational account of what he learned along the way. Through encounters with the sport's many colourful characters and his experiences of its soaring highs and crushing lows, Finn offers an unforgettable insight into what can be found at the boundaries of human endeavour.

The Olympics And Philosophy

It is said the champions of the ancient Olympic Games received a crown of olive leaves, symbolizing a divine blessing from Nike, the winged goddess of victory. While the mythology of the ancient games has come to exemplify the highest political, religious, community, and individual ideals of the time, the modern Olympic Games, by comparison, are widely known as an international, bi-annual sporting event where champions have the potential to earn not only glory for their country, but lucrative endorsement deals and the perks of worldwide fame. The Olympics and Philosophy examines the Olympic Movement from a variety of theoretical perspectives to uncover the connection between athleticism and philosophy for a deeper appreciation of the Olympic Pillars of Sport, Environment, and Culture. While today's Olympic champions are neither blessed by the gods nor rewarded with wreaths of olive, the original spirit and ancient ideals of the Olympic Movement endure in its modern embodiment. Editors Heather L. Reid and Michael W. Austin have assembled a team of international scholars to explore topics such as the concept of excellence, ethics, doping, gender, and race. Interweaving ancient and modern Olympic traditions, The Olympics and Philosophy considers the philosophical implications of the Games' intersection with historical events and modern controversy in a unique analysis of tradition and the future of the Olympiad.

It's YOU against Lead! Who is going to win? Sweet you? Or Rotten it? I'd like to tell you how it can and should be you! It's a pretty big deal too, since if you back down and choose not to fight now, you will probably only need to fight twice as hard in the future when it bites you in the culo somehow.

Sweating has officially arrived as that big new Diet for success! It is here, and it's here to stay! For its basis was well over needed, and its relevancy never before so apparent.

You can grow your body, mind, and spirit to unseen heights just by starting now as opposed to later! I've personally taken it to the extreme with over 2800 Powercycle68 sessions to conclude that we are built to go through a self-healing process with hard physical exertion. Perception, Science, Facts, Mathematics, and Testimony all come together to show just how undermined this process really is. The conclusive magic of the Powercycle 68 Gold Zone is ridiculous on just how well it heels the mind, and positively influences all your bodies' core functions. If it didn't, would I be standing next to you now with a silly picture of me before and after a session? No! I wouldn't. Everything changes for the better, everything! With ease as well, as you become an upgraded SuperYOU from completely balancing out your body. This is going to be HUGE for the future health goals of everyone worldwide. The all natural miracle drug has set sail on curing all who embrace!
