THIS DAD RAN TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH FOR HIS KIDS Marlin Keesler entered his first marathon never imagining that it would become the first leg of a six and a half year race across America that he and his family would embark onone in which the benefits of travel would do far more for his two children afflicted with a rare learning disorder than any classroom could offer. Our Life on the Run: a Story of Running 50 Marathons in 50 States A Family Quest is a treasure chest of beautifully written and inspirational travel tales about the journeys of a family that evolved from merely waiting for Dad to cross the finish line, to a family that learned how to research and plan educational and cultural excursions in every state they visited. From juggling work schedules and living within budget to learning the art of patience by flying stand-by, readers will certainly be able to relate to the Keesler travel adventures, pick up a tip or two and perhaps even emulate them by setting a family goal. Theirs is a true story of bonding that will remain the most precious memories in each family members heart and soul.

This is the story of one athlete of the 20th century and a record of the changing world of athletics during that period. It has been written because of the vast changes in sport, and athletics in particular, over a period of fifty or more years. There have been many changes but very few have brought about higher standards. Stanley Edward Eldon was born in the Royal Borough of Windsor on 1st May 1936. He grew up in Windsor during the Second World War, and during his time at Windsor County Boys' School he started his athletics career, running 880 yards and cross-country races. On leaving school he joined the Berkshire Constabulary as one of its first police cadets before his National Service call-up where he served in the Royal Military Police and became Army 3 mile champion. As a young runner from the age of sixteen years, he was ranked in the first three in the country at the one mile, and progressed by the time he was twenty years old to two World Best Performances for a junior at the 3 miles and 6 miles. After Military Service he rejoined the Berkshire Police as a constable where he further progressed his running career, including winning AAA Championships at both 3 and 6 miles; British records at 5 and 6 miles, as well as the 10,000 metres and International Cross-Country Champion (the forerunner of what are now the World Championships). He also won many international races on the track at various distances, as well as setting records in many road races. In 1961 he left the police and was the first athlete to start a retail sports business under his own name, and ran a successful sports business for over twenty-five years, which included introducing the first specialist road running shoes in this country. In 1983 he was instrumental in setting up the Reading Half Marathon, which for many years was, and still is, one of the largest and most successful events of its kind in the country. This 'hobby' eventually took over his life and more similar event organisation followed.

What readers first notice about Bill Bradley's exceptional book about his life as a pro-athlete, key basketball player for the New York Knicks, is his incredible candor. Bradley holds nothing back--giving us the straight story, describing in full detail the physical and emotional position on the court, to what was said and how it was said, to the somewhat surreal experience of seeing and experiencing the fans in their seats as they applaud or throw things. Bradley's on-court writing is as fast and direct and full of vigor as the game of basketball. The book conveys to us what it was really all about: how it felt to be him in the moment. And he succeeds. What is more striking perhaps is that Bradley balances this with his off-court writing: scenes of driving on the bus with the team through a grey downtown Cleveland as they make their way to the airport--industrial cities that have long ago burnt out, he tell us, the car wheels sucking on the wet pavement. Bradley brings life on the road as a pro-athlete to life. He writes with a directness that is fresh and unexpected. Reader's will enjoy this key-hole view into the life of a pro-athlete: they may laugh at some of what they see, be fascinated, and by turns, be horrified. Life on the Run was named by Sports Illustrated as one of the top 100 Sports Books.

One second in time may separate the great athlete from the merely good. Seb Coe has made every second count. From an early age he has been driven to be the best at everything he does. Since the moment Coe stood alongside a 'scrubby' municipal running track in Sheffield, he knew that sport could change his life. It did. Breaking an incredible twelve world records and three of them in just forty-one days, Seb became the only athlete to take gold at 1500 metres in two successive Olympic Games (Moscow 1980 and Los Angeles 1984). The same passion galvanised Coe in 2005, when he led Britain's bid to bring the Olympic and Paralympic Games to London. He knew that if we won it would regenerate an East London landscape and change the lives of thousands of young people. It has. Born in Hammersmith and coached by his engineer father, Coe went from a secondary modern school and Loughborough University to become the fastest middle-distance runner of his generation. His rivalry with Steve Ovett gripped a nation and made Britain feel successful at a time of widespread social discontent. From sport Coe transferred his ideals to politics, serving in John Major's Conservative government from 1992 to 1997 and developing 'sharp elbows' to become chief of staff to William Hague, leader of the Party from 1997 to 2001 and finally a member of the House of Lords. Running My Life is in turns exhilarating, inspiring, amusing, and extremely moving. Everyone knows where Sebastian Coe ended up. Few people realise how he got there. This is his personal journey.

Empowering women to be all that God wants them to be! In early New Testament times, women gathered at the well, drawing water and talking to one another about their lives and probably helping to advise each other about the problems or dilemmas in their lives. But one woman went to the well when she knew the others would not be there because of her shameful lifestyle that was unacceptable. She waited until much later, thinking she would avoid a confrontation with those who she knew would avoid her and look on her with disdain. But along came Jesus, who knew when she would be there and brought along understanding, compassion, and love. He left out condemnation and judgment and instead brought GRACE. (God's Riches At Christ's Expense) It was this encounter that changed her life and her lifestyle. The purpose and the vision of Women on the R.U.N. for Jesus is to minister to the total woman (spirit, soul, and body); gather women from different ethnic backgrounds and Christian denominations; open the doors of communication through fellowship; and provide the tools necessary to become the women that God has called us to be. Women on the R.U.N. for Jesus started with two women who were hungry for the Word of God. "For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them" (Matt. 18:20). The group meets once a month to empower women to become all that God wants them to be. Please join us!
