About the Book

Like it or not, we are all running a race called life, and we all have the exact same finish line. How we run our course matters, but even if we stumble and fall, there is always an opportunity to learn to race in a better way. Runners and non-runners alike will appreciate the lessons on such topics as rest and waiting while drawing inspiration to look at life from the viewpoint of seeing what God reveals.

With humor and a compelling storytelling style, Tretter allows you to accompany her on a journey covering thirty years and 30,000 miles. You will encounter the extraordinary people and events that can impact an ordinary life. With intimate looks at subjects such as winning, infertility, forgiveness, and healing, you are sure to be inspired on your own spiritual journey. Or at the very least, you will be able to make perfect Crème Brulée and Thai Sticky Rice!

About the Author

As a sixteen-year-old teenager in 1981, Colleen Tretter began running long distances, and over the course of thirty years she has logged over 30,000 miles. Through her journey up to her fiftieth birthday, she has gleaned lessons from the road and witnessed inspiring people and events that have deepened her faith and drawn her closer to God. She is a registered nurse who lives on a Pennsylvania farm with her husband of almost thirty years, Jim, their four sons, an exchange student they consider a son (as of 2014-2015), and a myriad of dogs, cats, chickens, horses, and cows. This is her first manuscript.
