A Coach's Journey: From a Sandlot to the Olympic Stadium is a tale of achievers and underachievers, of impediments and victories. It is a story of the liberating power of risking, expecting, and believing. It is a story to inspire all who strive to be the best that they can be, as seen through the eyes of man who, as a twelve-year-old boy, 'heard them cheering' in the Olympic Stadium, caught a dream, and worked his way to the pinnacle of the athletic world, Coach Ken Foreman is as good as it gets among storytellers. Yes, this is a book for all who are seeking excellence. I am pleased beyond words that others now have the opportunity to share in the wisdom of one who has led by amazing example of what is written in these pages. a "Doris Brown Heritage, Former head coach of cross-country and track and field at Seattle Pacific University; world record holder; US Olympic Teams 1968, 1972
