    Failure is not an option...

    What a great book. I've never had cancer and I've never run two miles at a time, much less a marathon but this book was so real and so moving for me that I feel like I've lived through both. Matt writes with humanity and warmth without ever being maudlin. Covering some very dramatic and frightening times with the expertise of a seasoned sports writer and the humility of a man who has stared death in the face. His strength was that of an athlete, those men and women he has admired and covered in his work. He IS the athlete he never thought he'd be.

    I was moved to tears a number of times. But he doesn't play it for tears...he doesn't write it for that. He writes in a very real and descriptive way with some humor too and with personal insights, letting each of know what it took for him to become a marathoner after he was diagnosed with cancer.

    It's fairly short and easy to read. I highly recommend it for anyone with cancer, or even anyone who has decided to overcome ... to fight ... to not give up. And isn't that each of us? It's really a good book. (oh and I read a LOT.)
