Overview

Running is the great escape, the ultimate freedom of body of soul … unless we push ourselves too far beyond our limits. The marathon length tests not just physical fitness, but mental and spiritual strengths as well. Those who succeed must often navigate a dangerous place, a place where the body is so depleted that the mind begins to lose control and we descend, at least for a moment, into a sort of insanity. At the finish of the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C., four marines and one sailor, made forever famous in their representation of victory at Iwo Jima, reach out to pull this main character from the brink of madness. If she can find the strength to keep running through pain and weakness, if she can win this battle within her heart and mind, she will have earned something she never thought possible: personal freedom for the first time in her life. This short story previously appeared in Aethlon: The Journal of Sports Literature, XXVI:2
