Lace up your running shoes and discover 
how your daily run can enrich your spiritual life.
We run for exercise, relaxation and sometimes to indulge our competitive spirit. Now Warren A. Kay takes you on an exploration of an often-overlooked facet of the sport: running as an intentional spiritual practice.
Kay’s approach is more than just “blissing out” on a run. He combines penetrating reflections on God, creation and the role of Spirit in our lives with practical, concise tips for starting your own spiritual running journal. He helps turn your ordinary runs into extraordinary opportunities for spiritual growth. Whether you’ve logged thousands of miles or are new to the sport, you’ll find the guidance and inspiration you need in this unique book.
Experience your daily runs as:
• Sanctuary—running time is sacred time
• Prayer—open yourself to conversation with God
• Meditation—reach inside yourself to find spiritual comfort
• Sacrament—experience the Divine in the physicality of running • Pilgrimage—a run is the journey and the destination

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 24, 2007 – There are thousands of books on spirituality and thousands of books about running. But few books exist on the spirituality of running, says Kay, a runner, cross-country coach and professor of theology who teaches a college course on the topic. His book is aimed at people who are more likely familiar with running than religion. There's nothing here about the physiology of running, training techniques or diet. Instead, the book is theologically basic, explaining, for example, what prayer is and asking such questions as “is there a spiritual world?” theology allows the author to address readers across faith traditions. Citations from Islam are one fresh element of this broad religious scope. Practical features of the book include chapter-ending questions for journaling, which are not especially original but are useful, and a reading list. The book's chief virtue is that the author comes across as a helpful and encouraging coach, with a knowledgeable and personal tone. Readers looking for more depth should go elsewhere, but this book meets elementary needs.
