Summary
"As the wife of a professional baseball player, Alisha Perkins has long struggled to find an identity of her own--a struggle made worse by an anxiety disorder that has plagued her since childhood. One afternoon during spring training, Alisha, eager for a few minutes to herself, decides to take a short run around the neighborhood. What she discovers is her first taste of the elusive runner's high, a release of her pent-up anxiety, and a chance to find her voice. As Alisha progresses from shorter distances to full marathons--eventually organizing charity races of her own--she is able to let go of the nagging sense that she is ''competent but not complete,'' even as the demands of training compete with those of family and baseball. A memoir that will resonate with anyone who has struggled with self-doubt, Running Home is a poignant meditation on the steps that hold us back, and those that push us forward."--Amazon.com
