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...

Running Made Easy

I was quite excited when the book came out. Thanks to a fairly hectic travel schedule, I could not make the book launch and paid the price by having to wait and search and search, until Crossword ended my misery by couriering the book to me ! I ( and am sure a lot of us ) know Amit and Neepa as rather heroic figures who routinely run distances that most wouldn't even dream of. To me personally, chugging along at my usual gentle trot at BNP, these guys have always seemed a little superhuman. S...

From the Couch to 42 K in 18 weeks

The common man's running inspiration
This book is an easy read for anyone interested in a real-life account of a modern day dad and husband
I found Amit to be down-to-earth and humorous, soaring with poetry and running, and crashing down with our all-too-familiar human weaknesses; as one reads, one identifies with the same! While meandering through life, learning to enjoy the journey more than the destination. Live,love,laugh and enjoy what you do and do what you enjoy!
