In Run Like a Champion, one of America's most versatile and accomplished runners, Alan Culpepper, reveals the best practices of the best runners. Over his 25-year racing career, Culpepper won national titles from 5K to marathon, a span of race distances so wide that just a few runners can claim the same impressive versatility. Culpepper sets out his approach--and the lessons he learned from his competitors--so that all runners can fully realize their potential. As a two-time Olympic competitor, Culpepper has a unique understanding of what it takes to compete at the highest level. His running career has put him on the start line alongside the world's best runners, and he has found that despite their many differences, talents, and approaches to training, among them they share a common understanding: the best athletes know that the secret to success in running lies in understanding a bigger picture of training. Not everyone has the physiology to run at the highest level, but everyone can benefit from implementing an Olympic approach to training. Run Like a Champion shares a big-picture view of running, looking at not only the essential training elements but also other key pieces of the puzzle: identifying motivation; finding a proper work/life/family balance; and understanding complementary aspects of training such as stretching, how much to drink, diet, and how to avoid and treat injuries. Run Like a Champion reveals all the guidelines, tips and tricks, workouts, mental training, and nutritional practices that Olympic runners use. By making this Olympic approach part of their running, runners of all levels will make their goals achievable from 5K to marathon.

Perhaps that's because, at the end of the day, shortcuts and paths that offer little to no resistance don't usually produce excellence, but instead a watered down version. What is excellence? It is more than just wins and losses. It consists of a long, never-ending process, and it brings glory to God, explain the top contributors to this book. The Excellence devotional provides inspiration to go beyond just getting by and instead to honor our commitments, pursue innovation and creativity, value quality over quantity, and be wise stewards of the spiritual, material, and relational resources entrusted to us. Learn how discipline and hard work lead to excellence, how to beat the odds in pursuit of excellence, and how to raise the standard.

The Psalms have long been a staple in the devotional life of religious people. Composed thousands of years ago, they bring every emotion known to humankind—from anger to adoration—into the presence of God. In many monastic traditions all 150 Psalms are prayed each week. But those who live outside the cloister, even if they love the Psalms, would find such a schedule difficult to maintain. In Prayers to the God of My Life, Lisa Hamilton provides small portions for daily reading each morning and evening for 365 days of the year. Matched both to nature’s seasonal cycle of the year and the church’s liturgical calendar, these Psalm fragments invite us to focus on all aspects of our relationship with God: praise, trust, fearfulness, pain, confession, thanksgiving, longing, the need for guidance, and more. A question worthy of reflection or a suggested action accompanies each selection. The Psalm translation is from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer. Excellent for use as a daily devotional, a companion to fixed-hour prayer, or for use by groups.

Der 45. Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika ist eine schillernde Persönlichkeit ... mit einer ebenso schillernden Vorgeschichte. Die hier versammelten Essays aus seiner Feder zeichnen ein viel differenzierteres Bild als das, was wir heute kennen. Oder hätten Sie gedacht, dass er 2009 noch voll des Lobes für Obama und voller Optimismus für das Amerika war, das er heute "Great Again!" machen will? Die Texte spiegeln Trumps Philosophie wider, wie man persönlich und beruflich das Beste aus seinem Leben macht. Sie zeigen einen nachdenklichen, reflektierenden Mann. Und sie zeigen, dass man ihn nicht auf seine Twitter-Feeds reduzieren kann.

The beauty of obstacle course racing is that it gets you out of your everyday routine and lets you experience life. If you are stuck in a cubicle or trapped in an urban jungle—congested traffic and crowds are your daily obstacles. Running an obstacle course race gives you the chance to get back to nature—to roll in it, get dirty, and tap into your primal self so you can experience life—in the raw, unedited and real. Margaret Schlachter, creator of Dirt In Your Skirt blog, is one the foremost competitors in obstacle course racing today. She put together this simple guide to make your obstacle race experience everything it's supposed to be—a test of your true self. She describes first-hand her personal training methods in learning to climb a rope, scale a wall, flip a tire, throw a spear, and carry a sandbag. More importantly, she provides guidance on how to get yourself mentally and spiritually prepared for the big day—and how to dig deep within yourself during a race to find the last ounce of strength to carry you across that finish line. Every weekend thousands of competitors run obstacle races all over the world. Winning or losing is secondary. More important for them is the ability to meet the physical and mental challenges and achieve personal success by completing the race. Obstacle Race Training is an invaluable resource that enables each and every competitor to experience the maximum level of success that they are capable of.
