Essayist and poet Nita Sweeney discusses her witty and poignant story, Depression Hates a Moving Target: How Running with My Dog Brought Me Back from the Brink.

It's never too late to chase your dreams: Before she discovered running, Nita Sweeney was 49-years-old, chronically depressed, occasionally manic, and unable to jog for more than 60 seconds at a time. Using exercise, Nita discovered an inner strength she didn't know she possessed, and with the help of her canine companion, she found herself on the way to completing her first marathon. In her memoir, Sweeney shares how she overcame emotional and physical challenges to finish the race and come back from the brink.

There's hope and help on the track: Anyone who has struggled with depression knows the ways the mind can defeat you. However, it is possible to transform yourself with the power of running. You may learn that you can endure more than you think, and that there's no other therapy quite like pavement beneath your feet.

Whether you're born to run or just looking for rebirth, you will:

  • Be inspired by the powerful story of one woman--and her dog
  • Cheer on Nita as she endures the challenges of a marathon and a mind in turmoil
  • And discover the power of running to overcome obstacles
