Inspiring

It is amazing to see how Rich's faith helped him to change his priorities. After putting God first, he was able to win the games twice(when this book was written), then twice more has an individual and once as a team. What an amazing way to glorify God by being the best at what he does.

a little more god than I expected

Interesting story from a personal perspective but a little more god than I expected. I should mention I knew little about Rich except he'd won more crossfit games than anyone else.

Good overall story

It was a good story and liked how he explained he newly found faith.

There was a bit too much simple naration at some parts.

But overall good book.
