The depth, challenges, and diversity of the characters pulled me in immediately. A sign of a great book is that it sticks with you. Weeks after reading, I have found that to be true.  - Sharonvia Amazon

"In any city, on any race morning, there exist both individual rituals and collective determination. Each runner, man or woman, may arrive via different paths, and their goals might vary, but today the intersection of Clark and Addison is the starting point of a shared journey for them all. Today, their journey will be long. A half-marathon is over thirteen miles long. It demands patience and perseverance more so than speed. It requires preparedness, certainly, but more importantly, it requires faith."
