In this fifth book in the series, Dan and his best female school friend Beth, register for a big, school sponsored, city-wide running contest. The race is very prestigious and winning it is something the elite runners in the city covet. Beth and Dan are no exception and want to win the race also. As they trained together every day for months, a deeper bond of friendship was made even stronger between them. They were determined to win the race. Beth and Dan are exceptionally fast runners and ultra competitive athletes. Each has a keen desire to win any athletic contest they participate in. As expected, the competitive spirit between them was present from the day they signed-up to compete in the race. At the start of the race, with a wink and a smile, both challenged each other to win the first place gold medal. However, unknown to the two of them, at a critical point in the race, this bond of friendship would be put to a severe test as the two friends are faced with making a decisive decision that could potentially tarnish their beautiful friendship. Will they overcome adversity and remain true friends?
