Boris Jeremenko vaguely remembers April 10, 1951-the day his ship arrived in New York Harbor from a refugee camp in Atmont, Austria. After his parents announced that the family had docked in America, six-year-old Boris traveled with his twin sister and parents to Fort Wayne, Indiana, to begin a new life. In a fascinating memoir accompanied by historical photographs, Boris leads others into his memories of days gone by as he reflects on his inspiring journey through life, filled with highs and lows and his unwavering faith in Jesus Christ. While sharing childhood challenges that included initial language barriers as a kindergartener and his father's alcoholism, Boris also offers a glimpse into happy moments like riding in his beloved go-kart, attending Boy Scout camp, and operating a ham radio. As he reveals how his journey eventually led him to marry, have children, and begin a career in law enforcement that would ultimately take him into the political arena, Boris reminds all of us of the power of perseverance, prayer, and a belief in God's plan. Running the Race One Day at a Time is the true story of an Austrian immigrant's life experiences after he journeyed to America with his family to begin a new chapter.
