"I have always chased my father, chased after his love, chased him through his many changes. Today, even though he is gone, I chase him still. To runners around the world, Dr. George Sheehan, author of the landmark "New York Times bestseller Running and Being, was nothing short of a guru -- the country's "greatest philosopher of sport."

By his twenties he was a confirmed alcoholic. By his thirties his marriage had fallen apart and he was drinking more heavily than ever.
It was at that moment that his father threw him a lifeline. Although he was struggling with the cancer that would eventually end his life, Dr. Sheeha
