Terry Hitchcock's view of America and its single-parent culture comes to us from a unique perspective in this book. A humble man of accomplishment, Terry Hitchcock nonetheless did something extraordinary -- some said foolish -- to bring attention to the unnoted and often thankless chore of raising of a family under stress as a single parent.

Read this book to find renewed heart in America; more than that, read it to re-discover what faith, family, love, and sheer guts, can overcome!

Format: Paperback
I bought this book at the Twin Cities Marathon Expo because I met the author and star of the book, Terry Hitchcock. I was excited to read it because he was local guy and I wanted to read about his big 75 marathon adventure.

While I thought it was impressive that he could run so much for so long, I was bored with the story and I actually got kind of ANNOYED. Being both an avid runner and parent, I could not relate to anything in this book. I felt his sponsors that he rounded up to help support him with this project were really funding his own personal goal and the philanthropy came second. I am not saying he is not passionate about his cause, but I was expecting more about what was done for his charity or stories about his run across the country. Rather, he gave an unspecific overview of his daily runs (read: weather reports and interviews with local media).

The one thing that really left me scratching my head is that he took on this adventure it was to raise awareness for single parents and their children and the back of the book indicates that a portion proceeds of the book benefit autism, breast cancer, and diabetes research. Huh?

Once I opened this book, I couldn't put it down! It was an inspiring read on so many levels: the author's passion for his cause (helping single parents and their children), his refusal to give up his dream in spite of the "impossible" nature of his dream (75 marathons in 75 consecutive days), his dedication to his family, and his positive attitude and overall perseverance. This is a story not only of endurance and faith but also a story of two marathons: the one he ran and the one he lived. If heroes are ordinary people who accomplish extraordinary things, then Terry Hitchcock is most definitely a hero! Highly Recommended!
