Overview

When in your life were you the most motivated, focused and successful?

Many people find that revisiting their past success in life can be encouraging and helpful as they face their current struggles in life. For Daniel Grant, it is his last option.

Daniel Grant is a seventeen year old senior in high school in the year of 1996. He hopes to be elected as the captain of the Cross Country running team because he has some extreme goals set for the team. The wild journey and success that Dan and his teammates go through during his senior year is told by Daniel Grant as a thirty-two year old, soaked in years of drunkenness and hoping that recalling the story of his successful senior year of running in High School can help him overcome drinking and become healthy again so he can provide for his wife and three children.

"Running is the answer to an indefinite number of questions, the cause of countless pains, and a constant friend as I venture through life." -- Daniel Grant

"Running used to be at the forefront of so much happiness in my life, and I crave for it to be so again." -- Daniel Grant

    This book is amazingly encouraging! I couldn't put it down until I was finished reading it. If you want to be inspired, pick up this book.

    PS - This book is NOT by the "Michael Graham" author Barnes & Noble says it is. This book is authored by "Michael D. Graham" and it is his very first book.

    Enjoy the read
