McGillivray If you can dream it it can happen In this heartening book Boston Marathon race director and motivational speaker David McGillivray shares the challenges he has overcome to inspire readers to similar triumphs in their own livesAlways the last pick for team sports because of his small stature David McGillivray drove himself to excel at individual sports Whe he was 16 he set himself up. This week s book was The Last Pick by David J McGillivray with Linda Glass Fechter and was published in 2006 It s the autobiographical story of Mr McGillivray who grew up to be the race director of the Boston Marathon He was also the technical director from 1988 2001 Basically he grew up to be short 5ft 3 in and this profoundly affected his life and his attitude about his life Because he was so short few believed in his atheletic ability and hence he was always the last pick As a young man he goes on to become an accoplished runner in high school and college and then he becomes one the first hand full of people to run across the continental US roughly 3400 miles His story is an interesting one but I got tired of hearing about his being short He seems to have to mention it every 10 pages Aside from this minor shortcoming pun intended the story is a good heartwarming tale and the author comes across as a very good man One thing I found interesting was there was no mention of the WS100 Considering it s supposed to be one the oldest and most prestigious ultra runs I thought it would at least rate a reference I guess when you ve run 3400 miles in 80 days 100 in 24 Hrs is no big deal
