Good day to all! My name is Joseph Samuel and I am ecstatic to welcome you to Sportsef! As you may know, this is my website that aims to provide you guys with authentic sportsbooks reviews that you can really depend on. There will be no sponsored content or paid for reviews on this site! So let’s get started!
The book that I wanted to talk about today is an autobiography that’s written by Deena Kastor. She named it “ Let Your Mind Run: A Memoir of Thinking My Way to Victory”. I was not quite sure what to expect from this book but I have a penchant for picking good ones so I was looking forward to this one. A short Google about Deena Kastor yielded a lot of useful information. I honestly did not know that she was an Olympic Medalist.
The book wasn’t so much a chronicle of her life but more of an explanation of her thought processes as she faces adversity in her sport. She takes her readers through a rather honest look at how she thoughts about things and how the negative emotions that she harbored almost caused her to quit the sport that she loved.
If you’re a runner, you will be able to appreciate the motivational wisdom that Kastor has in her book. After all, she’s been through some of the toughest scenarios that a runner could find themselves in. I admit that there are a lot of lessons in this book but the pacing for me is rather slow.
At times, it feels a little dragging so I wasn’t able to completely enjoy the book. It’s too bad since the message is good. I would probably think that there are those that would be able to appreciate this book in its entirety but I’m just not one of them, I guess.
