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!
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?
