From 100 meters to the marathon: Inspirational Stories of some of the greatest runners (Just some Motivation)

Running is an incredible feeling in itself, and a great way to stay fit and at your physical best. As far as humans are concerned, running was necessary, in the earlier days, to hunt for food, to fight in the wars, or to deliver messages.

There have been incredible and inspirational runners in the past, like the Greek messenger Pheidippides, who was sent from the battlefield of Marathon to Athens, to deliver the message that the Persians had been defeated. (He roughly travelled a distance of 40km, almost the same as a modern day marathon event.)

But over the past century, ever since running has become a serious and a highly competitive sport, we have witnessed some individuals, pushing through the human barriers, creating incredible records and in their journey towards doing so, inspiring millions of others to do the same.

Some of these runners, my favourites, that come to my mind immediately are Usain Bolt, Haile Gebrselassie, Milkha Singh and Mo Farah amongst many others. Some of them have had unbelievable stories, some of them have unbelievable records; but each have a strong motivation behind their running journeys and that is what I wish to share here in this book, so that more people are inspired towards their very own running journeys.
