A Father’s Odyssey Review and Giveaway
What would you do if your soulmate died, you lost your job, and you found yourself with your three young children depending on you alone?
For most, it would be a struggle to survive, let alone "keep it together." Even putting one foot forward every day would become an epic act of bravery. One man defied these very circumstances, and managed to do much more than just survive in the years following his wife's death.
Terry Hitchcock, age 57 at the time, ran 75 consecutive marathons in 75 consecutive days. He travelled over 2,000 miles to bring awareness to the financial and emotional hardships faced by single parents and their children - everyday heroes who run quiet, yet extraordinary, daily marathons.
Terry Hitchcock proved that "impossible" is only a word.
I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing Terry Hitchcock’s story is! He turned one of the worst combinations of events into an amazing plea for help for single parents. At the age of 57, he ran over 2,000 miles in just 75 days. Now, I’m only 24 [25 in 12 days!] but I don’t know if I could muster up the determination, not to mention physical ability, to do what he did. This book is full of inspiration and drive and determination. For what? For a cause he believed in with all his heart. It is amazing to be able to read about his journey; why and how and for what. I truly appreciate this story and love A Father's Odyssey!
