From the Back Cover
"There may be accounts of the interaction between coach and athlete in other sports, but in cross country and track, perhaps, we need a wider understanding of this powerful relationship that has changed so many young persons' lives for the better.
I wish everyone could find coaches like mine and Matt's, people who taught more than simple athletics to kids." Bill Rodgers, Four-time winner of the New York City and Boston Marathons
"This book is a celebration of the unsung heroes of sport, the coaches who sacrifice their time to form champions and change lives. Matt captures all of this in An Honorable Run. The sport of running is about overcoming challenges, life lessons taught and learned and the victories that don't always come with winning, but simply by giving our all." Jim Ryun, three time Olympian, former World Record Holder in the one mile run
"An Honorable Run is an inspirational journey for anyone who has ever laced up a sports shoe. Proof that you don't have to win to be a winner."Mike Sager, Writer at Large, Esquire, 2010 National Magazine Award Winner
