Overview

You've seen them. The people with funny-looking clothes, a number pinned to their chest, and they're running. Running to where? Usually in a big circle, or in many smaller circles. Sometimes in a straight line back and forth. For hours on end. Why? Because they can. They're marathon runners.

This book is about a special group of runners: endurance marathoners, those who run dozens of marathons, many events in consecutive days. Or both.

We're all in this Together introduces you to a specific group of these runners who embarked on a journey to America's Dust Bowl to run 5 marathons in 5 states in just 5 days. They began as individual runners and left as family. Along the way, they found courage, inspiration, triumph, and friendships that will last a lifetime.

Meet the Author

Hello!I'm George Rose, author and certified baseball nut and endurance runner.I started running in 2010, and quickly became hooked. One marathon led to another, then another, and soon I was on a quest to run marathons in all 50 States. I've also begun running in series of marathons, ones that cover 5 states in 5 days, and sometimes more. It has become a passion more than a hobby, and I've met some fantastic people along the way. I am glad I get to share their stories.I have two early baseball memories that stand out: The first baseball card I can remember owning was a 1978 Topps Rick Miller card. (I don't have a clue how or where I got it, I was probably five at the time.) The second is my first ever baseball practice; I was age seven. A family from Arizona moved into the house across the street. They had a my age, so being that we lived on a half-mile-long road with four houses (my parents owned two of them), and no other kids around, we naturally became friends. His dad had been a little league coach in Arizona, and got involved in little league here too. I don't remember any talk of having me sign up, or if I had any interest in playing. I do know I didn't have a clue how to play the game or anything about it. The first time I tried to hit a baseball, I stood on home plate. I missed badly with every swing. I played right field. Fortunately, my teammates were a little better at the game than I was, and we won the Little League Championship my first year.Sometime after I had to be shown where to stand at the plate and before the cap was popped off the last red soda at the championship celebration, I fell in love with baseball. Soon I had all the baseball cards, knew all the players, and tried to play second base just like my hero, Sweet Lou Whitaker. Over 30 years later, I still have all of my baseball cards, know most of the players, and still can't turn a flawless double play. That's okay, though; baseball is a very forgiving game. I only play in the back yard now with our two children (who both knew before they were two where to stand at home plate), but I get to drag the whole family around to as many baseball games as possible. We will be attending a lot this season, and I hope you will come up and say hi! As anyone can tell you, every day is a great day to talk baseball.Please visit my website at: baseballwonders.comThanks for visiting my page and have a great day!
