Marilyn and Wayne met at a country western bar in Lawndale during the "Urban Cowboy" craze of the '80's. She took him home that evening for what was to have been her last one night stand, but he stayed for almost thirty years. Theirs was a relationship defined by upheaval: the incomprehensible insanity of alcoholism, followed by life affirming recovery. They married, divorced, and remarried, raising two children while hardly knowing how to raise themselves. After being together for twenty-four tumultuous years, a bomb shattered their illusions during Christmas 2003: Cancer. This would prove to be the final siege on their embattled lives together. Once so virile, handsome, and strong, Wayne was diagnosed with brain lymphoma at the age of 54. They were baby boomers who thought they were invincible. Devastating illness was something reserved for grown-ups, for those who had a toe hold on reality. From the beginning of their journey to the tragic ending, they had a deeply passionate and unbreakable bond. This is their rollercoaster ride through pain to redemption as they both learned the true meaning of love.

The sign on his office door simply says “Track & Field Coach.” His life says infinitely more. Coach Al Buehler has touched and enriched the lives of countless athletes, students, and others, including Olympians John Carlos and Carl Lewis, sports icons Mary Decker Slaney, Shane Battier, and Ellison Goodall Bishop (the first woman to run at Duke)—and thousands more who have never owned a pair of track shoes. Coach Al Buehler believes that finish lines are something to prepare for; and in his world, they should be a place to begin… Buehler is the consummate professor-athlete-coach. Following a stellar college track career at the University of Maryland, he came to Duke University in 1955 and has since coached thousands of track-and-field and cross-country athletes at the biggest moments in sports from the NCAA Championships to World Indoor Track Championships to the Olympic Games. Coach Buehler is the longest-term teaching professor and coach in the history of Duke as well as one of the most successful, with a long roster of All-Americans, six ACC championship teams, seven Penn Relay champions, and multiple Olympians to his credit. At a campus still segregated by race and gender, Buehler was an early and ardent advocate for both desegregation and Title IX. Amongst the many accolades and honors that he has received, he is a recipient of the Jackie Robinson Humanitarian Award. At heart, Coach Buehler is a mentor. And Starting at the Finish Line embodies his advice and memorable “Coachables”—along with commentary and insights by a host of notables, from Coach Mike Krzyzewski and Jackie Joyner-Kersee to Carl Lewis and Joan Benoit Samuelson—that have inspired, motivated, and educated athletes and students alike to play with integrity and heart—both on and off the track.
