In September 2015, in an extraordinary effort called RUN50, Ferdie Cabiling set out on a 2,180-km run across the Philippines. He ran 50 km every day for almost 50 days, celebrating his 50th birthday along the way, to raise PHP 2,885,482 for scholars of the REAL LIFE Foundation. Ferdie ran from the southernmost tip of the Philippines in Maasim, Sarangani to the northernmost part in Aparri, Cagayan, praying with government officials and preaching in churches on Sundays.
Writing as an experienced ultramarathoner, the Running Pastor chronicles his journey of faith and shares a unique perspective on the author of Hebrews' exhortation to a group of weary and frightened first-century Christians—to run with endurance the race set before them.
This book taught me that running is a mental and emotional battle more than a physical one. In order go through the race that it set before me, I have to set my eyes on Him which requires constant discipline. We need to have a long-distance perspective so that we can all run together as a team in this race.
First time to finish a book in almost one seating because every page is so much exciting to read! Whether you're an experienced runner or not, you can relate to this book. I can can almost hear the author's voice speaking to me personally. It was fun! I treasure this book like I gained a new experience similar to his.
