Kharis Publishing today announced the release of “Brooks Running: A Memoir” (ISBN: 978-1637460702) by Greg Brooks & Heather Beck. Readers and fans alike finally get an insider-scoop into the life story of one of the country’s well-decorated ultramarathon runners.

CHICAGO, Ill., – Join eminent ultramarathon champion Greg Brooks on an epic run-for-your-life, soul-searching journey as he recounts his athletic and Christian paths through life. From the depths of addiction in the Sixties’ rampant drug culture, to the pinnacle of revitalizing highs atop of Mount Kilimanjaro, run with Greg as he navigates the highs and lows of his unique experiences. Greg’s memoir is laced with the American history of his ancestors, takes a fascinating look at the Fortune 500 Eastman Kodak Company, and also features the poignant poetry of his father. His overall message for you is that you can run the Race of Life and be a winner in Christ.

According to Chris Boshnack, Founder of Gold Rush Runners, Rochester, NY., “Brooks Running explains why one runs and why running is a parallel to life in more ways than one. Brooks knows about life’s highs and lows and how to stay the course. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. Words of wisdom come from the pages, thanks to a well-decorated marathoner. Brooks makes running look easy, which is why so many people have followed in his footsteps. Come along on this incredible journey with him as he retraces his runs through some of the most memorable courses and recounts the blessings that life has to offer. Brooks Running is a story of one man’s perseverance and dedication to all things that matter. And, when you hit the proverbial wall, Greg shows you how to run through it with grit and gusto.”
