ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Rick E. Meyer's passionate heart for helping others leads him in reading an average of five books per week since the mid-1990s.
Rick's unique background includes running over 134,000 lifetime miles since June 1978, a B.S. in Agronomy (soil, water, and crops) from Kansas State University, and his M.A. in Christian Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary provides unique synergistic insights. Attendees will dash out of the arenas filled with mind boggling insights into metaphors such as planting seeds, proper tilling, harvest, and seasons.
While running an average of 9 miles per day for 41 years, Rick understands long-term persistence and authentic motivation to overcome every imaginable excuse. He conquered these miles in temperatures ranging from 13 miles in minus 70°F wind-chill (minus 35°F actual) in 1996 to 5 miles in 118°F in 1983. The weather has varied from blizzards, knee deep snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain, torrential rain, hail, lightning, mud, dust, and high winds to perfectly warm and sunny.
Talk is cheap!
Meyer's presentations supply a lifetime of multi-mode excuse-icides for the attendees to eliminate their excuses.
You may also contact Rick at Leadership Speakers Bureau to schedule him for speaking or leadership engagements.
A great book that intertwines the life of a runner with the strong faith to weather the ups and downs of life. If you love to run and find spirituality in running - this is the book for you.
Rick Meyer is the real deal...and I'm not just saying that because we are fellow Kansan's. Rick ran competitively in High School and College. He also speaks to various groups regarding his experiences. I recommend your purchasing this book and reading it with a cup of coffee and a highlighter. I have completed one marathon and several half-marathons and this book was an encouragement to me. Pick it up today and jump in.
