Wow, this book is such an amazing story about a man who ran to raise money impoverished children. This memoir is a tale of the struggles, joys and everything in between! What an inspiring tale of what one human can do to improve the lives of others! It is heartwarming, amazing, a bit crazy and truth be told incredibly motivating. It makes me want to make changes at a local level! I rate this book 4 stars! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0985135980, Hardcover)

The 25,000 Mile Love Story is a love storybut not a love story in the traditional sense. It is not just about a man and woman; nor is it just about a husband and wife. There are many people who can write that story. Instead, this is a love story that has lasted a lifetimea love for the worlds roads and all the people who inhabit them. You will follow Serge Roetheli through his childhood as an adventurer, through his teen years as a boxer, and through his adult life as a runner and mountain guide. As he writes in this intriguing memoir, You will sit by my side as I fell in lovenot once, not twice, but three times. And you will run the road with me on The American Challenge and The World Tour. Then, you will return with me to where I belong, and I pray that you will take away some life lessons and the truth I have come to know so well.


His life lessons are simple: It doesnt matter where you come from or what you start with. Possessing more or less doesnt ensure happiness or even victory.


You cannot win the race overnight; you win it by persistenceby daily devotion. And you win it by doing the little things well.
