Thousands of children raising themselves in the city dump of the capital city of Ulaanbaatar. From eastern to western borders, 1,500 miles of bare, dry, dusty land. Thirty miles of running per day. Seventy-five days. And one yes. Those are the numbers that don't add up in the realm of possible, but that's where dangerous begins--saying yes to the impossible.
In this harrowing tale, former ski bum now local pastor in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Brian Hunter recounts his adventure running across the country of Mongolia with his wife and two small kids in tow. As the story unfolds, powerful truths that can guide you on a similar road to becoming dangerous are outlined. From the initial decision to commit to doing something doctors told him was physically impossible, to the ultimate faith test to walk away from a steady income to support his family, to the traveling logistics that almost kept him from even getting into the country, to the treacherous trek in constantly changing climate on an unmarked road, to losing and miraculously finding his support crew multiple times, to facing the thousands of children living amongst the trash and filth of one of the world's coldest cities, Brian can say with authority: It's not about how you start the race; it's all about how you finish.
You, too, can become dangerous when you commit to doing life STRONG TO THE FINISH.
