Overview

Quenton Cassidy thought he had left his athletic career far behind as he built a successful professional career in south Florida.
But as several personal tragedies and the wear and tear of life began to weigh upon him, he wonders if perhaps he hasn’t given up a special part of his life too soon.
His return to the world of competitive running is dramatic and revelatory to both the protagonist and the listener, as is his desperate, all-out attempt to make one last Olympic team.

I have to say that I enjoyed the H@## out of this book. I don't want to compare it to Once A Runner, as that may be the ultimate book written about running, but this continues perfectly Quentin's tale. I own the Hard cover's for both, and am going to purchase the E-books for both, as I read these books bi-annually. Did I mention that I enjoyed the Read?

A strong beginning, the plot wanders in the middle, then finishes strong. The novel would be of those familiar with the challenges of training and racing.
