The 25,000 Mile Long Love Story

The 25,000 Mile Long Love Story
Serge Roetheli

Serge spent over five years traveling the world to raise money for impoverished children. He ran while his wife, Nicole, followed on her motorcycle. It seems impossible and crazy. The statistics during his time was astounding. He averaged a marathon every other day, drank 6 tons of pop, and wore out 64 pairs of running shoes. But despite accidents, dangerous animals and people, terrible weather conditions, and the overall wear on his body, Serge kept running. This book is his story.

Rarely do I come across a book that inspires me as much as this book did. I could barely put it down and was so disappointed to have it end. It's inspiring, motivating, touching, and heartwarming. This man is crazy, but in all of the good ways. If he can do this for children he doesn't know, what can we do? I've only read through it once (although give me time and that will change), but I have already dog eared so many pages. This man's drive and guts are inspiring, but he was also gifted with a way with words that really spoke to me. I highly recommend this book, even if you aren't a runner.

I received this book free of charge from Levine Communications in exchange for my honest review.
