“Having read Ms Cougler’s historical fiction, I looked forward to her first non fiction effort and The Man Behind the Marathons did not disappoint. Great for a leisurely read and as well written as Ms Cougler’s earlier books. Fascinating insights into the life of Terry Fox and the equally amazing later marathoners but the final marathon is the remarkable life and legacy of Ron Calhoun the man behind the success of the marathons.” Wayne Caslick “I loved the book. [The Man Behind the Marathons] So glad for the way you set it up. It kept me reading. And then the section on Ron came just as I was about headed to Google to see what led Ron to be the guy he was. The quality of the paper was a real asset. Top quality for a top quality story about a top quality guy. Congratulations. I felt your heart in every page. Thanks for letting me have an early look at the book. Very cherished.” Sue Hilborn
