Writing About Girls Who Run
Novelette Launch Date 9/17/16
Here's the tagline: Two girls with nothing in common except the 500-Mile Summer of '89 Challenge.
Clara is an average student and below-average athlete. With some inspiration from her cross country coach, Clara decides to take on a summer running challenge: complete 500 miles in three months. The problem? Her parents don't want her jogging all those miles alone, but Clara doesn't want to run with the girl they suggest. Joan is weird, and something seems to be mentally wrong with her. Except none of Clara's other friends run. Will she complete the challenge, or does being stuck with Joan mean she's destined to fail?
She's also the person behind my love/hate relationship with running. She got me started back in college when I had no intention of running more than a few miles at a time.
