Five On Foot--- An up-close and personal running adventure story about of a family of 5 (three daughters, mom and dad) that ran from the tip of Florida to Ohio. This 4.5 month, 1,325 mile-by-mile obstacle course was staged on the berms of America's highways from the humid Florida coastal terrain, through Georgia's green forests, up the mountains of North Carolina, through Tennessee's bluegrass fields and onto a grand finish in Ohio. The family was hounded by the press and embraced by enthusiastic supporters, but as you will see, this challenge required physical endurance, mental strength, and courage the family had trained a lifetime for.
The take home message came in the form of a plaque from running peers that read: "Congratulations to those who not only dreamed the impossible dream....but ACCOMPLISHED IT."
Two years later this family of 5 were hired as public relations agents to run from the Maryland's Atlantic coast to California's Pacific shore; The Transcontinental; Sea-to-Shining-Sea Run, the next book in this family sport series.
