About the Book

T.K. Rivers as a student ran on the track team at the University of Iowa. Ten years later, he has been invited back to a lettermen’s banquet to present an award. T.K. reflects on his experiences as a student-athlete, as he travels to Iowa City for the banquet and a reunion with his coach and former teammates. Now an attorney, T.K. has reached a point where the shine has worn off his new career, where he feels depleted by the rigors of a sweatshop law firm and longs to rekindle the passion and optimism he felt as a college athlete.
