by Nikki MacCallum
is a coming of age memoir that compares the challenges of running a marathon to the struggles of growing up as an only child with an alcoholic parent.
MacCallum’s father ran thirty-two marathons and was also a recovering alcoholic. After he suffered a near-death relapse, Nikki ran her first marathon as a Hail Mary Pass to save him. DRY RUN has 26.2 chapters, each representing a mile of that marathon. With a foreword by the legendary Jonny Podell, DRY RUN was released by Auctus Publishers in May 2019 and is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and in select book stores.
The audio version of the memoir (featured on Broadwayworld.com), produced by Tony Award Winning Lambo Productions LLC., was released in 2021 and can be found on Spotify and ApplePodcasts. It is an exact transcript of the book, and was released as 26.2 episode podcast, narrated by Nikki, and features a cast of fifty Broadway and television stars.
