    On the morning of December 22, 2005, New York City firefighter Matt Long was cycling to work when he was struck by and sucked under a 20-ton bus making an illegal turn. The injuries he sustained pushed him within inches of death. Miraculously, after five months in the hospital and more than 40 operations, Matt was able to start his recovery. This book chronicles Matt's road to recovery as he teaches himself to walk again and, a mere three years later, to run in the 2008 New York City Marathon.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Long Run to be better than the print version?

    This book is very inspiring.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I know of his family and have spent time with his father, This book kept me wanting to listen and run more. I enjoyed the narrators take on his accent and found it endearing. His story is truelly awe inspiring. The ups and downs paint a great picture.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The book was emotional at times, but it doesn't stick to a low point for any length of time.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read for anyone who likes to be inspired, who needs to be reminded of how blessed they are. Would be good for a younger person too.

    Would you listen to Chi Running again? Why?

    Chi Running is a practice. It takes commitment and time. This audiobook helps you take the basics and do them while you listen. It is much easier than trying to read form a book and then doing the practice. You can have the creator right in our ear. My running has improved significantly and my soreness is next to none. I just ran my third half marathon and had minimal soreness.

    There have been many Marines. There have been many marksmen. But there has been only one Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, a legend of Marine lore. He stalked the Viet Cong behind enemy lines. His record has never been matched: 93 confirmed kills. This is his story. Powerful, chilling, and all true.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and any friend at that.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charles is an incredible person. One can't fathom the magnitude of what this man accomplished in his life without going through the entire book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This is a gripping book. it doesn't matter if you know or care anything about guns or being a sniper. It helps if you do but isn't necessary. I am one of the most girly girls you may meet. This book will forever effect me because of his will and the skill he had.


    Any additional comments?

    Such a true hero. Very inspiring
