Running for My LifeOne Lost Boy’s Journey from the Killing Fields of Sudan to the Olympic Games
By Lopez Lomong, with Mark Tabb
Running for My Life is a story about Lopez Lomong and his life of torture as a Sudan Lost Boy. But it doesn’t end there. He has a dream, a dream to run in the Olympics for the United States of America. This is his journey of how it came to be a reality.
The story of Lopez Lomong has really made me look at my life in a different perspective. After reading it you will have a greater appreciation of the many blessings we have but take for granted. One of the quotes from the book that really spoke to me was:” I knew I had the ability to make my dreams come true, but it is one thing to believe in yourself. It is something else entirely to have friends believe in you as well”. It made me realize the importance of believing in your friends.
