(from the Introduction) This book travels through my post-Runner's World years. When the editor cut me loose in late 2003, I still had many more miles to go - on foot and as coach, as well as in print. These are stories about some of those miles. My column moved to Marathon & Beyond, where those pieces continued to tell, in serial form, what I kept doing after RW said I was done. The book contains all of those magazine columns.
