Firefighter Randy Gleason learned firsthand when he ran the Marine Corps Marathon and raised more than $15,000 for burn survivors. His book, written in journal format with daily entries alternately serious and lighthearted, describes how he trained for this grueling event while collecting donations from 500 contributors. In for the Long Run also touches on a number of topics unrelated to marathons, so its appeal extends beyond just runners. Instead, its a lively, thought-provoking book that can be appreciated by almost anyone, a story about a guy who manages to keep sight of his goal - without losing his sense of humor.
