life-threatening fears, obstacles, and challenges, and how to deal with them with deep faith and a positive attitude. Her story speaks of overcoming insurmountable odds as she turns them into successes through long distance running. I encourage everyone to get inside the mind of this ultra-runner and recognize the fact that life is never easy, but great success awaits us all if we’re willing to work through the issues.”

When life is hard, she runs to heal. The honest, unvarnished storytelling is fantastic, with just the right amount of humor mixed in to let us know that she is grateful for all of it. I loved this book.”
