Five-Year Anniversary

They say time flies when you’re having fun. Today, February 11, 2019, marks the five-year anniversary of Maynard 8 Miles being published.

As we move forward in this journey, I want to thank everyone who has been involved by either reading the book, sending their words of encouragement or shared their personal stories. I look forward to what the next five years will bring.

For now, I’m looking forward to attending the Iowa Girls State Basketball Tournament Feb. 28-March 2. Feel free to stop by my booth Thursday-Saturday to pick up your copy of the book.


Book Donation to Falk Elementary

My father, Glenn Borland, was involved in the Madison Metropolitan
School District for more than 30 years, including being the Interim Superintendent. After he passed, my family wanted to seek a way to appropriately honor the memory of our parents.

After finding out that a local elementary school, Falk Elementary, was launching a Dual Language Immersion (DLI) program during the 2017-18 school year, we knew we had to help. On Nov. 7, 2017, myself, along with Liz and Brad decided to purchase more than 400 books and donate them to the new reading corner. We also donated close to 250 copies of the Maynard 8 Miles book.
