Life has mirrored a game of musical chairs until one New Year’s Eve she stumbles upon a Dash for the Dream brochure in the local diner. The team is a faith-based group that runs marathons to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis research. Patrick Litton is raising his six-year-old daughter Aubree alone. As the leader of Dash for the Dream the widower works tirelessly to secure funding in search of better treatment for all those afflicted with CFincluding Aubree. Patrick has no time for romance until he meets Daylin at the Dash for the Dream kick-off party. Daylin and Patrick don't expect to fall in love, but both learn that when it comes to romance, training for a marathon is the easiest part of their journey.
