Jim Ryun

From setting Olympic world records, to serving in the US Congress, Jim Ryun shares inspiring messages about his remarkable life’s journey. It’s a journey that led him from being cut from the church baseball team to being rated by ESPN as the number one high school athlete of all time, beating out Tiger Woods and LeBron James. In his messages, he challenges listeners to dream big and see how failures can guide you to your true gifting. 


Over the last 50 years, the national media attention he has garnered has led him to speak to thousands of individuals at conferences, workshops, camps, churches, and political meetings across the nation. His most recent book, “Courage to Run” is a 60-day devotional that reflects on his life as an athlete, parent, and Congressman.
