When it comes to cross-country running, Jake does everything right. He eats all the right foods, trains like crazy and reads articles about running in his spare time. There's nothing easy about running, but the hardest part for Jake is that, at the end of the day, Spencer Solomon always wins first place. Determined to take the lead for once, Jake continues to push himself even more. His rigorous training schedule leaves no time for friends, family, pizza or joking around. When Jake is invited to join the Diamond Running Club, he thinks he's found an opportunity to train harder. Instead, with the help of his coach, Jake begins to rediscover what he used to love about running in the first place.

I like this book because it talks about perseverance and courage when Jake starts running. They are important character traits. What I disliked about it was when it talked about racing. I don't like running races because they're too tiring and exhausting. He (Jake) was forcing himself to be 1st but its ok to be second sometimes.

I think this book was great because at the end jake relieses that running is not all about winning and I also like the when jake and Simon are going to have a sleepover.
