The Runner's Devotional

The Runner's Devotional
Inspiration and Motivation for Life's Journey. . . On and off the Road.

I've just started running again so was very excited to get this book. The book is divided into 52 weeks. Each week has seven sections - Intro, the runner, the race, the result, my story, think it through and on running. Each section is to be read on one day of the week and then at the end is a small space to journal and a running log. The layout of the devotional is very impressive and put together well. I like the idea of mixing my running each week with a spiritual aspect.
My only complaint would be the way the week is laid out. It was confusing to me since it doesn't say in the chapter what part to read when. So the first day I read the entire chapter in one day. Some of the days are quite long and others are really short. If it had been a hectic day I would have to read the previous days thoughts to remind myself what the theme was. But this wasn't enough for me to dislike the book, only a minor annoyance. Definitely a book I'll be gifting/recommending to the runners in my life.

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