Ryan Hall is an Olympic athlete and American record holder in the half marathon (59:43). But as a kid, Ryan hated running. He wanted nothing to do with the sport until one day, he felt compelled to run the 15 miles around his neighborhood lake. He was hooked.
Starting that day, Ryan felt a God-given purpose in running. He knew he could, and would, race with the best runners in the world and that his talent was a gift to serve others. These two truths launched Ryan's 20-year athletic career and guided him through epic failures and exceptional breakthroughs to competing at the highest level.
Along the way, Ryan learned how to focus on his purpose and say no to distractions, to select and strive for the right goals--goals for the heart as well as the body. With God's guidance and millions of miles pounded out on the track, Ryan discovered secrets to dealing with defeat and disappointment, enduring immense pain, building resilience, and ultimately, running as if you've already won.
Now a coach, speaker, and nonprofit partner, Ryan shares the powerful faith behind his athletic achievements and the lessons he learned that helped him push past limits, make space for relationships that enrich life on and off the running trails, and cultivate a positive mindset.
Journey with Ryan as he reflects on the joys and trials of the running life and discover for yourself the power of a life devoted to your God-given purpose.

Very inspiring! I highly recommend
I’m really loving this book, “Run the mile you’re in”. Every chapter speaks to me as I’m living in it now. I am about to start training for my first marathon since I beat a terrible bout of colon Rectal cancer, it was so bad I could hardly walk. Although through the Grace if God I’m cancer free. It tears me up that my pace is not wear it should or was at. Prior to that I BQ a lot and was on a quest to get all fifty states. So I plan to get a audio of this book for when I start training to listen to in my long runs. This is truly an inspiring book and gain such great respect for Ryan Hall. I highly recommend.
