ryanhall1Ryan Hall is fast -- very fast. He is the only American to run the half-marathon under one hour. He won the 2008 Olympic Trials Marathon in New York City and went on to represent our nation in the Summer Games.

The California native is passionate about running but he's also passionate about his Christian faith. In his spare time, Hall works with Team World Vision, a ministry that provides clean drinking water to parts of Africa.

Hall tells Fox News Radio's Todd Starnes that he hopes people will catch a glimpse of heaven on earth when he runs.

"Honestly, I think I connect more with God when I'm running. It's definitely a very spiritual connection. That's how it is when you are doing whatever you were created to do."
