Recently I just got the Memoir of Meb Keflezighi. It was about the early life of Meb until his 2009 New York City Marathon win. I will now say this memoir published too early for a true champion like him. The London Olympic Marathon 4th placing and the recent win in Boston with a PB, showing that the story of him is still too early to conclude. 

If you are a runner, you will understand how difficult to get a PB. Further more, a PB at his caliber (2:08'37"), at the age of 39, is mission impossible to most of us. I would said this give me hell lots of hope & inspiration! Near that age, I am seeking out my own limit and dig deep into my potential now. I aimed high and dreamed big.
“But I also realize that winning doesn't always mean getting first place; it means getting the best out of yourself.” ― Meb Keflezighi, Run to Overcome.

  1. How is the book?

    His win at the recent Boston Marathon is so inspiring.

    1. It is a slim hardcover book. To be frank, don't buy it now. It will sure be a new book or at least new edition soon. That's also one of the reason I said that the memoir is too early. His fantastic journey just started after the winning of 2009 New York Marathon!

    2. Slim?

      I guess Mo Farah has more story to tell as his book after his Gold medal at London Olympics is thick. :P
