Dry Run, is a coming of age memoir that compares the struggles of running a marathon to the challenges of growing up as an only child with an alcoholic parent.  One Christmas Day, Nikki MacCallum left her father, former runner of 32 marathons, in a hospital room hooked up to an oxygen machine, detoxing after his most recent relapse.  Six months later she ran the Providence Marathon as a Hail Mary pass to save both him and their relationship.  Dry Run unfolds with each chapter of the book mimicking a mile of a marathon, and depicts the story of a parent/child relationship juxtaposed to a relationship with self, both having been fractured and enriched by alcoholism over the course of twenty-years.
