Running Lean

Running Lean by Diana L. Sharples
ARC, 390 pages
Published August 6th 2013 by Zondervan Publishing House

Running Lean [run·ning leen]

A term referring to a deficiency of fuel in the fuel-to-air ratio of an internal combustion engine.

A physical condition where not enough caloric fuel is present for optimal performance of the body.

A spiritual condition in which a believer relies on his own strengths.

Equilibrium. That’s what Stacey and Calvin found in each other. He is as solid as his beloved vintage motorcycle and helps quiet the constant clamor in Stacey’s mind. She is a passionate, creative spirit—and a lifeline after Calvin’s soldier brother dies.

But lately the balance is off. Calvin’s grief is taking new and more dangerous forms. Voices of self-loathing are dominating Stacey’s life. When struggles with body image threaten her health, Calvin can’t bear to lose another person that he loves. Taking action may destroy their relationship, but the alternative could be much more costly.

About the author

With a degree in art, combined with a love for storytelling, Diana Sharples has won numerous awards for both her art and her writing. She writes clean, contemporary young adult fiction. Her first novel, Running Lean, was published in 2013 by Harper Collins. In 2015, her publishing was temporarily derailed by a battle against cancer, but she's back in 2018 with five new books, including the long-awaited sequel to Running Lean.

Diana's writing is inspired by the people and landscape of the south, especially North Carolina and Georgia. She is a wife and mom, a follower of Jesus Christ, a lover of many pets, and an avid motorcycle rider. Her happy place is the teal and burgundy she-shed that she finished and decorated by herself to become her office and art studio. And one of her greatest joys in life is watching her daughter-a recent college graduate--dance on stage. ~ Goodreads
