Running the Distance (book) by Jared Blank

Jared Blank was only five years old when he realized something was different. He was having trouble learning to read, holding a pencil, using scissors, and tying his shoes. As it turned out, Jared had dyslexia, and he still does. With the help of his family, friends, teachers, and mentors, Jared learned to see his learning obstacles as opportunities. He also pursued sports and running as a way to excel, express himself, and help others. In writing this book, Jared hopes that sharing his challenges and experiences with school, work, and the World Marathon Challenge will inspire others who struggle to run their own distance and know that they do not have to do it alone.  Click here for more information on Jared Blank and Running the Distance.  All profits from book sales are 100% donated to IDA.  Keep paying it forward!
