"Sweeney's courage and grit shine through her candid memoir . . . This book has the power to inspire countless others as they pace themselves to mental health." ―Aimee Liu, author of Gaining: The Truth About Life After Eating Disorders

Before she discovered running, Nita Sweeney was forty-nine years old, chronically depressed, occasionally manic, and unable to jog for more than sixty seconds at a time. Using exercise, Nita discovered an inner strength she didn't know she possessed, and with the help of her canine companion, she found herself on the way to completing her first marathon. In her memoir, Sweeney shares how she overcame emotional and physical challenges to finish the race and come back from the brink.

Anyone who has struggled with depression knows the ways the mind can defeat you. However, it is possible to transform yourself with the power of running. You may learn that you can endure more than you think, and that there's no other therapy quite like pavement beneath your feet.
Depression Hates a Moving Target is a witty and poignant story of rediscovery. Whether you're born to run or just looking for rebirth, you will:

· Be inspired by the powerful story of one woman—and her dog
· Cheer on Nita as she endures the challenges of a marathon and a mind in turmoil
· Discover the power of running to overcome obstacles
