This is a book about running, but it’s also a book about life.
Jeff Cann, a life-long runner, is now in his fifties. Deep in the descending arc of his running career, he decides to kick it up a notch. This book chronicles his often misguided attempts to turn himself into a Bad Ass, Back Woods, Trail Runner. Sometimes lighthearted, sometimes not, Jeff touches on many topics relatable to runners… and pretty much everyone else.
This eBook is free.
Fragments – a memoir: Jeff Cann has achieved the improbable. He has taken an honest look at himself. The twenty-four stories that comprise this book range from serious and sad to funny and uplifting. And they all include an element of raw, self-analysis. These well-crafted stories each stand on their own, but together they form a mosaic, a picture of a life in transformation.
