The Marathon is a non-fiction novel that tackles extremes in long-distance running, Marriage, parenting and faith.  When the sheerans' premature baby is born with severe complications - including tef/ea - the entire family spends more than 4 long months in the NICU at Boston Children's Hospital.  As their daughter clings to life, the sheerans must face their worst nightmares head on.  From patient advocacy, to questioning their faith in God, to learning to listen and trust their own intuition - their journey as parents of a critically ill child is paved with inspiration and hope - and guided by a mother's inner voice.  Not your average book about the boston marathon, the marathon​ exposes the heart and soul behind one family's desperate attempt to make it to Boston before it's too late.


TEF/EA = tracheo-esophageal fistula/esophageal atresia.

THE MARATHON

A TRUE STORY



AUTHOR KERRY SHEERAN TACKLES EXTREMES 
IN PARENTHOOD, MARRIAGE, FAITH, AND LONG DISTANCE RUNNING WITH HER NEW NOVEL, THE MARATHON



As Tom Sheeran prepares to run the Boston Marathon, he comes across an envelope, stuffed into his bag the morning of the race.  Written by his wife, the letter inside matches the course’s 26.2 miles with the struggles he and his family have endured during the previous, sometimes heart-breaking, fifteen months.  Joining Tom as he tackles the course from Hopkinton to Copley Square, the reader follows the gripping ride of a family’s response to life’s incredible twists in the road.  Uniquely told from both parent’s points of view, THE MARATHON follows a couple's attempt to save both their child’s life and their dwindling faith. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In THE MARATHON, author Kerry Sheeran courageously reveals the innermost thoughts and fears of parents struggling with experiences far beyond their control. Her true story uncovers the heart and soul behind one of the world's most historic races while beautifully demonstrating the power of inner strength, endurance, and human connection. Honest, humorous and raw, the emotions ring true from the start all the way through to an ending no one will predict. Of broad appeal to parents, athletes, medical professionals, and families in search of healing.
