“After struggling with health issues, dyslexia, speech impediment, and an alcoholic father, I led a group of amazing young runners to make American history. After our record-breaking victories, I became one of the 'winningest' high school running coaches in America. I am living my dream and want to share this inspiring journey with you.”
