9781519764287: How The Race Was Won: A Coming of Age Story About Running

They say that Disney World is the place where dreams come true. For the author of this book, that was certainly the case! His life had been a series of stepping stones to get him to the height of American distance running. It started with a foot race on the playground in elementary school that resulted with him being tabbed the fastest boy in his class. The pressure to stay competitive and keep winning carried over into high school and eventually as a scholarship runner in college. "How the Race Was Won" is the true life story of the first and only American to win the Walt Disney World Marathon. After reading this book, a person will learn how to draw strength from their personal experiences to reach the destiny that is waiting for them. This book suggests that we are a product of our environment. And that collectively, the power of everything good, bad, and ugly in one's life can be converted into the very thing that turns hopeful passion into triumphant promises. The author gives a sentimental and adventurous account of how to win one of America's biggest marathon races. As a result, what the reader discovers is the practicality of how a person, when committed to a task, can achieve things that were at one time only a dream to them.
