New Book Honoring Veterans Released by USMC Veteran, Ultramarathoner, and West Virginia Native Jamie Summerlin
Book Signing at Taylor Books in Charleston WV.
Morgantown, W.Va. ? Sept. 25, 2013 ? Ultramarathoner and Marine Corps veteran Jamie Summerlin will present his new book
Freedom Run: A 100-Day, 3,452-Mile Journey Across America to Benefit Wounded Veterans
at the Taylor Books book store, located at 226 Capitol Street, Charleston, WV 25301, USA. Summerlin will be selling signed copies of Freedom Run at Taylor Books from 5:30PM to 7:30PM on Wednesday November 20th. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit veteran-focused charitable organizations.
Freedom Run tells of Summerlin?s 2012 transcontinental run across America and the heartfelt stories of courage and determination from the U.S. veterans he met along the way. Throughout the book, not a detail is spared. With light humor and great emotion, Summerlin provides the many elements involved in preparing for and accomplishing his journey, as well as some of the milestones and people who shared the experience with him. While many have attempted to run across the country, few have completed it; Summerlin became just the 48th person known to have finished a true coast-to-coast run in America.
Hope to see you there!
At the young age of 39, I took on the greatest challenge of my life, an effort that pushed me both mentally and physically like I had never been challenged before. I completed a 3452 mile 100 day run across America, capped off with a 100 mile finish from Annapolis MD to Rehoboth Beach DE in under 24 hours, all to raise awareness and money in support of the men and women I consider my heroes, those that have worn and now wear the US Military’s uniform.
My book, “Freedom Run”, was released in April of 2013, detailing my journey to honor those who have bravely served, and describes the life-changing events of my run across America. MORE>
