About the Book

Wilson N. Trueheart Jr. celebrates his love of running and road racing over a more than thirty-year span in Baltimore.

With this collection of poems, essays, and short reflections, he shares his training plan, injuries, other setbacks—as well as his plan for continuing to run.

Trueheart trains at Lake Montebello, the Herring Run trail, and on the streets of Baltimore. The lake offers a one and two fifths of a mile loop and includes a great view of wildlife. When he runs downtown, Trueheart dodges traffic and pedestrians, but he gets a dose of adrenaline. The trail offers peace and quiet: it is like an oasis in the middle of the city.

The author also shares how he has overcome falls, injuries, and even going the wrong way. He’s even had to battle prostate cancer, undergoing surgery before getting back to a regular schedule.

Through it all, Trueheart’s mission has been to live up to his name by being true to himself—and to win.

Join the author as he celebrates his love of running with an incredible journey into the sunset.
