In ‘THAT MASTERFUL SEASON’, the reader will find a refreshing story that follows 8 men from both coasts that have one common bond. On the west coast, Marc Minor, Greg Jackson, Danny Epps, and Bernard Kelly all have varying lifestyles and careers. Marc has numerous revenue streams to avoid going back into the corporate world along with pursuing his creative and active needs. His days can be spent in the home of a struggling student whom he tutors or he can be found at a park or track training one of his clients to achieve their physical goals. But what he loves most aside from competing, is writing stories for the television medium.

Marc also has a love interest in his life who gives him reason to smile with joy, or frown in despair during a single evening together. Through the ups and downs, he deeply wants more out of their relationship but struggles to find the perfect elixir to attain his desires with Diane Klick, his beautiful legal professional girlfriend. Their relationship baffles those close to Marc but they never reveal their true feelings about her to him.

Marc manages his time well so that he can train at a level which will catapult him to the top of the ranks of masters’ track and field.

Bernard Kelly has been separated from his wife, Brenda, for close to a year but he hasn’t allowed it to shut down his day to day existence. He works at a San Diego high school as a track coach and part time teacher. Bernard has bigger plans for himself but is slow to move on them. He enjoys his secondary role of mentor for those young men in search of someone who cares. Bernard gets hyped when he comes up with a plan that he feels strongly about and can usually get others to follow along.

In Bernard’s perfect world, he would love to have Brenda back in his life to share his triumphs and eventually begins to move in that direction.

Greg Jackson owns a couple of car washes which support his lifestyle. He was able to put aside money from his days as an elite international sprinter. Greg also makes sure the people in his life are people he can trust every since his wife left him and took their daughter with her. Although still extremely talented, he needed to be coaxed back onto the track by an old friend. Once committed to pursuing historic goals, he finds the love for the sport that was responsible for his rather comfortable lifestyle.

The largest void in Greg’s life is not being able to spend more time with his daughter something which he has shared with only a select few.

Danny Epps has the best of all worlds in the eyes of many. He has two beautiful children and a loving supportive wife. Nearly all of his decisions are based on how it affects his family. Similar to Bernard, Danny works with young people in the capacity of a high school science teacher. He and his wife are searching for ways to ensure a financially secure future for their children as well as for themselves. Danny’s son looks to follow in his footsteps and finds nothing better than spending time with his father.

Danny’s drive is admired by his friends who support his endeavors and in return he figures out a way to help others in need.

These four men form a formidable team that is determined to break records not to be approached for years to come. They realize that they will need competition to achieve this goal and decide send a challenge to an equally talented quartet from the New York City tri-state area. Along the way, they become closer as friends and embark on a remarkable spring and summer of triumphs tempered with some disappointments that keep the pages turning.

The Tri-state Allstars have been running together longer than their west coast counterparts and have goals of their own both in their personal and athletic lives.

Alan Simpson is the heart of group on
