著名美国马拉松运动员 Ryan Hall

I run because I believe that God has created me to run. When I run, I feel like I am fulfilling the purpose for which I was created. I know that I may not always run, but that God has used running as a part of my life to lead me down a path that I would not have taken otherwise. If I had never run, I would have never went to Stanford, met Sara, or be doing what I am doing now. I believe that God wants me to run to bring glory to his name and to further his kingdom on earth in some way. Some of my most intimate moments with God have been out in the trails, on the race course, or on the track. This is why I love to run. ---Ryan Hall
