    Description

    Dare To Run is a collection of inspiring essays that recount a husband-wife duo’s transformational journey from being amateur runners to finishing The Ultimate Human Race in South Africa.

    Summary Of The Book

    The year 2010 saw a miraculous culmination of a long and arduous journey in Amit and Neepa Sheth’s life. They had crossed the finish line in the 89-km Comrades Ultra Marathon, South Africa. Dare To Run takes its readers on a journey from that first amateur run in Amit’s life to reaching this pinnacle as a runner. It’s a recollection of the stellar achievement of a husband-wife duo, who chose running as a sport only in their late 30s.

    Dare To Run begins with Amit’s reflection of the time of his first run at a beach in Mumbai. That 200 meter jog had nearly proved fatal for him. But it was also the starting point of the story of Amit’s and Neepa’s display of unflinching will, incredible determination, courage, discovery, and self-belief amidst incredible hardship. At the end of it all, they emerged victorious and with memories that they would cherish forever, as they were the first Indian couple to have crossed the finish line of the 89-km Comrades Ultra Marathon in South Africa.

    Using a combination of philosophy, poetry, and scriptures, Amit, in addition to narrating his story, elaborates on his perspectives on life, spirituality, religion, and of course, running. The reader is left inspired at the turn of every page, as he or she reads about what this couple could achieve, while still balancing work and family, and training and injuries, which are inevitable aspects of playing a sport.

    Dare To Run encourages its readers to chase their dreams and follow their passions. It teaches them to relentlessly pursue their goals and cause amazing success and happiness in life. It also motivates them to be the best in everything they choose and still maintain a sense of balance and appreciation for the beautiful fact that they still exist.

    Not only will Dare To Run leave a novice runner inspired and rejuvenated, it will also help the elite athlete recognize his or her own strengths and weaknesses. And for those who don’t run, the book opens the possibility of pushing through one’s limits to conquer what at first looks like an impossible mountain to climb.

    Just Awesome!!

    This is a beautifully written book by Amit Sheth. It flows very nicely between his running experiences, its extrapolation to life in general, learning, and some wonderful quotes and stories of eminent personalities(read philosophers). The book is one of the best I have ever read. It gives you a very close and personal look at the ups and downs Amit experienced over the years as a runner, which bring tears of joy and sorrow to your eyes automatically.

    Kudos and Hats-Off to Amit, his wife Neep...

    Great read

    Amit Seth is passionate about running and this reflects in his book. He is very humble about his capabilities including how he did not make the Comrades finish line in his first attempt. If you share his interest in running, you will love his book!

    Celebrating the joy of running

    This book put a smile on my face and made me happy; exactly the feeling I get when I complete a hard run. This book shines with positiveness and it shows through in the writing. Experienced runners and beginners alike can read to experience what you have already discovered or about to discover when you start out on a wonderful journey called 'running'. Non runners can hope to get a glimpse of why we runners do what we do - RUN. The craziness, pain, dejection, injuries, ecstasy, joy, bliss, an...
