One man's (somewhat) harebrained decision to train for a marathon with his 18-year-old daughter results in a rekindled love for his family, running, and life. Foreman's prose is light hearted, funny, and informative. It's almost enough to make me want to get back on the trail myself!

Minnow Bly lost everything to the Kevinian cult: twelve years of life, her family, and, after she rebels, even her hands. Now the Kevinian leader is dead, the cult camp in flames, and Minnow may be the only person who knows what happened. But she's not talking... This book is at once an indictment of the juvenile justice system and an exploration of faith and misuse of power. Simultaneously, breathtaking and harrowing.
