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.

fascinating guide to religion and its place in the world today. In God Is Not One, bestselling author Stephen Prothero makes a fresh and provocative argument that, contrary to popular understanding, all religions are not simply ''different paths to the same God.'' Instead, he shows that the differences between the major religions are far greater than we think: they each ask different questions, tackle different problems, and aim at different goals. God Is Not One highlights the unique aspects of the world's major religions, with chapters on Islam, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Yoruba religion, Judaism, Daoism and atheism. Lucid and compelling, God Is Not One offers a new understanding of religion for the twenty-first century.

Succession is the hot topic in leadership development, but the subject has rarely been addressed in Christian literature. As a college, university, and seminary president who experienced three successions in leadership, David McKenna is eminently qualified to speak on the subject. He begins by introducing us to the Succession Principle: What we bring to leadership is important. What we do in leadership is more important. What we leave from our leadership is most important of all. Once our priority shifts from success to succession, the door is open to read John 17 as the Prayer of Succession for Jesus. In this final report, Jesus transfers to his disciples and to us the same enduring trust, transforming truth, and unifying love that he has received for leadership from his Father. With these legacies come specific gifts of succession to complete our task, develop disciples, advance the kingdom, and see the fulfillment of Christ's promise, "Greater things than these shall you do." Succession in the spirit of Christ, then, is written not in terms of success, but in the seamless transition of sustainable gifts culminating in the gift of greater things.

Renowned running coach Budd Coates presents a revolutionary yet simple training method based on rhythmic breathing to help runners at all experience levels improve their performance, prevent injury, and experience the joy of running. Validating his method through a mix of accessible science, Eastern philosophy, and the experiences of test subjects, Coates shows readers how focusing on their breathing brings their minds and bodies into harmony and helps them run stronger, faster, and more comfortably. Rhythmic breathing increases lung volume; improves awareness and control; helps prevent injury and side stitches; improves running for those with asthma; allows runners to quickly set a pace for quality training and racing; and helps athletes manage muscle cramps. This book reviews the basics of rhythmic breathing, teaching readers how to perform it while walking and, eventually, while running. Weeklong sample schedules from different programs shows readers how to apply the rhythmic breathing scale to any workout. Coates also touches on the importance of stretching, cross-training, and core training and provides detailed training plans and schedules.

This book is about the unseen Shadow War that occurred between 1968 and 1976. It was written to honor those who served our country and didn't come back. They may have been ignored or denied by the "Powers That Be", but they will live in my heart and my nightmares as long as I live. The profits from the sale of this book will go to help homeless veterans. Reading this book will open a new world for you -- The world of Special Intelligence Operations. From Viet Nam to Cambodia to Laos and North Viet Nam the action will show you why so many veterans from the Viet Nam War have PTSD. The potential for recurring nightmares will be apparent. Next you will take a trip from Libya to Spain to Italy and Romania. You will find out that the war against terror did not start in 2001. The following sample will demonstrate what Inside the World of Mirrors is all about. In 1974, I met and was briefed by a "Mr. Martin", a high level individual from the American Embassy in Rome, Italy, on an operation to insure that a particular individual would not continue funding communist political activities in Italy. He was a bag man for the KGB. It was less than two months until a very important election was to take place. He was spreading money around to help the communist political candidates get elected. I was simply told "Make Him Stop"! They gave me carte blanche to get it done. Anytime in the next seven days would be just fine. This was only one of the 83 missions ran by a Special Intelligence Operative code named the Iceman

In Runner's World The Runner's Diet, you will discover: Why the 50-25-25 ratio works best for runners--and even walkers How to match your eating pattern to your running style How to make use of a daily food and activity log With the imprimatur of Runner's World, the leading authority in the running field, this is the first book to recognize that runners cannot depend solely on physical activity to control their weight--and to outline a lifetime weight-loss plan that is best for their special needs.

Originell, faszinierend, abenteuerlich: ein Journalist auf der Suche nach dem letzten Geheimnis des Sports Seine Passion: das Laufen, sein Beruf: das Schreiben. Christopher McDougall suchte eine Antwort auf eine vermeintlich einfache Frage: Warum tut mir mein Fuß weh? Wie er sind Millionen von Hobbyläufern mindestens einmal im Jahr ernsthaft verletzt. Nach unzähligen Zyklen des Dauerschmerzes, der Kortisonspritzen und immer neuer Hightech-Sportschuhen stand McDougall kurz davor, zu kapitulieren und die Diagnose der Mediziner ein für alle Mal hinzunehmen: „Sie sind einfach nicht zum Laufen gemacht.“ Stattdessen hat sich der Journalist weit abseits der kostspieligen Empfehlungen von Ärzten und Ausrüstern auf eine abenteuerliche Reise zu den geheimnisvollsten und besten Läufern der Welt begeben. Eine Reise, die McDougall in die von Mythen erfüllten Schluchten der Copper Canyons in Mexiko führen sollte, wo ein Volk lebt, das sich seit Jahrhunderten unter extremen Bedingungen seine Lebensweise bewahrt hat. Die Tarahumara verkörpern den menschlichen Bewegungsdrang in seiner reinsten und faszinierendsten Form. Laufen über lange Strecken ist für sie so selbstverständlich wie atmen. Was wussten sie, was McDougall nicht wusste? In seiner Reportage geht er den vergessenen Geheimnissen der Tarahumara nach. Er verbindet lebendiges Infotainment über neueste evolutionsbiologische und ethnologische Erkenntnisse mit zahlreichen, inspirierenden Porträts von Menschen, die sich – egal, ob sie zum Spaß das Death Valley durchqueren oder einen Ultramarathon in den Rocky Mountains absolvieren – eines bewahrt haben: die Freude daran, laufen zu können wie ein Kind. Einfach immer weiter. Denn in Wahrheit, so McDougalls Fazit, sind wir alle zum Laufen geboren.
