I just finished reading Lopez Lomong’s book “Running for my Life”. The story he tells in this book is amazing. He is a truly inspirational person.
I had the honor of finishing 3rd to him and Dominic Luka in many high school cross country + maybe even some track races (in indoor the goal was just to not get lapped). I’ve always respected Lopez’s talent and hard work (especially while still looking like he’s having fun) the book gives you insight into his truly remarkable life and the story exudes goodness.
I highly recommend any athlete, teacher, coach, American, random kids growing up; everyone, really, to read this book.
