The Ryan Hall Story: Olympic Marathon Runner and Christian

Have you heard of Ryan Hall?  He represents the United States in the marathon at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.  Ryan qualified for the Olympics after posting the fasting time by an American-born citizen at the London Marathon earlier this year. He's only competed in 4 marathons but is now the favorite to win it all in Beijing. What makes this story even more amazing is that Ryan is a Christian. He says, "The goal of my life is just to follow in the footsteps of Jesus as closely as I can." For a closer look into his life check out the videos below:
