KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- In Susan Dawes’ new book “Run the Race: A Father’s Legacy of Life Lessons” (published by iUniverse) she presents to readers the true and heartfelt story of her unique relationship with her father.

“Run the Race” is the moving, true story of how one loving and devoted father inspired his daughter to run not only long distances, but also the real races of life. It is an honest, humorous and at times heartbreaking story that deals with many life situations.

Excerpt from “Run the Race”

“When a younger and faster girl joins the team, Susan begins to doubt her talent. She complains to her father and tells him she wants to quit. But Floyd Seibert offers the advice she will come to count on for the rest of her life: there will always be another race to run.”

“Run the Race” was chosen as an honorable mention in the life stories category of the 16th Annual Writer’s Digest International Self-Published Book Awards.
