Emma was born to run…or was she?

Emma’s sister, Bella, is the star runner on the high school track team. Her super athletic mom has been running for years. And her dad trains for marathons. Running is just what Emma’s family does.

When Emma finds out she made the school running club, she’s excited…and nervous. Right away, though, it becomes evident that Emma isn’t the fastest one in her family. Or the most coordinated.

Emma thinks quitting is her only option…until her teacher invites a special guest to talk to her class about failure. Emma is surprised to learn that failure isn’t something to fear – it’s actually something to celebrate! As her classmates share their own failures, Emma realizes that maybe failure is actually a stop on the road to success…and that maybe she shouldn’t throw away her running shoes just yet.
