A Father, a Son, and a Three-Mile Run
A father helping his son train for a three-mile cross-country race is the underlying true story in this remarkable memoir that shows how one man's love for his own son and the sons of others has made a positive difference in the world. Bill Leenhouts struggled against a lifetime of academic and physical setbacks, but his father never stopped believing in him, loving him, and encouraging him. Bill went on to be a Michigan all-state cross-country runner and to complete his studies at Central Michigan University.
