About

First publication of "Lyrics Of The Spirit"
First publication of "Lyrics Of The Spirit"

In April 2014 several running teammates and I covered 10,000 miles for my Miles 2 Give Foundation around the perimeter of the USA counter clockwise to raise funding for sarcoma cancer research. We covered these miles running & attending events in 34 states with the contribution of several  guest runners. It was a grueling test of emotions, and physical stamina. This tour brought hundreds of cancer families together around the world-sharing answers, love, and a bond like no other. 

The 230 day tour followed the successful philanthropic team run by myself and two running teammates on the 2013 team run across the USA in 157 days. The first ever team run covered 3,187 miles and honored 270 sarcoma cancer families. It would be the beginning of another monumental approach to bring awareness, and needed funding to further desperate research. 

The 2014 team run started in Times Square, New York City right in front of Good Morning America. The tour was supported by the iconic 1993 Chevy Winnebago Brave RV, "Life Elevated." A museum on wheels that was covered in over 6,000 signatures on the walls and ceiling. Life Elevated gave everyone a chance to share their story on these walls. It was a place people could come in and instantly not feel alone anymore. 

For me, living and sleeping inside this museum of angels became so powerful of what I was hearing within my soul. So I began to document what I was feeling. Poetry began flowing through me as if I was intercepting dialogue between heavenly angels and earth angels. Running on the side of the run for all those miles, with the names of those we ran for on my face, I was tapping into some unchartered sacred space. 

I captured every poem that was flowing within me. And, with the first issue of this poetry/book that came out in 2015-it was filled with photography from the 10,000 mile lap. Images from running, families signing the RV walls, and holding the broken bodies of hundreds of strong Warriors around the USA. The 2014 Miles 2 Give 10,000 mile tour concluded back in Times Square in December 2014 after honoring another 250 sarcoma cancer families. 

With the re-issue of this community funded publication, I am wanting to highlight YOUR Warrior, their cancer type and a cancer related foundation/event you want to share with the world. The book will feature a high resolution picture of your Warrior (submitted by you), the website of the foundation/event you want to highlight, and their cancer type below. 

The book contains 28 poems + 3-5 additional NEVER BEFORE SEEN poems that were discovered recently in the Miles 2 Give storage. Poems that were written just weeks after the tour that show the head and heart space after all those miles and all those Warriors. The book will feature a new photos from the tour (NOT TOO MANY AS THIS BOOK IS ALL ABOUT YOU AND YOUR WARRIOR'S STORY), new opening commentary, and much more. 

This is the book every person needs that has ever been effected by cancer. Whether you know someone personally, or you have lost someone personally. This is the book that will guide your heart in healing, and re-activate your inspiration during dark times. A beautiful remembrance that you are not alone, and you can reach for this healing book many years to come. 

I feel this book should be in every hospital in the world. With your help, more people's story will be heard, and more people will have this book in their homes. I thank you for your contribution, and look forward to hearing from you.

Please submit your Warrior(s) high resolution picture, submit the cancer foundation and/or cancer related event you want to highlight, and their cancer type(s) to: landongallantart@gmail.com 

Estimated book release is April 28, 2019! Let's come together as community and bring this book to the world.

Yours, 

Landon
