"Go See the Beautiful" is a must-read story about the amazing life race that we all are given as a gift from God. This is a book that highlights our true purpose, and the importance of never giving up and never accepting defeat. Rusty Johnson shares inspiring stories that all readers will enjoy whether they are training for a marathon, climbing Mount Everest, or trying to make it through the day in one piece. This book was written to uplift and remind us all that, although the race may be long, the finish line reward can be better than we ever dreamed possible.


"Go See the Beautiful" was birthed on the eve of the author's first marathon.  As he sat in an Oklahoma City hotel room, looking out the window at a stretch of the racecourse, he was suddenly struck with how his journey to get to that moment was an example of the life we lead. There had been vision to accomplish something big.  There had been many obstacles and times of discouragement, almost defeat.  But he also had moments of fierce determination and renewed hope. He experienced minor victories and major accomplishments.  And always, there was training. There were amazing sunrises and sudden rainstorms.  There were crazy cows, attacking birds and barking dogs.  But there were waterfalls, ocean waves and mountain peaks.  It was life and it was good.  The stories herein are meant to challenge and uplift even as they deal with the difficult topics of our days and the struggles that are common to every life.  The race may be tiring, hard, and long.  But the finish line can be more glorious than anything ever imagined.
