Numbered twenty-fifth in Sports Illustrated for Women's top 100 female athletes of the century, the author has long been an inspiration to millions. Born with spina bifida, an imperfect closure of the spine, she was never supposed to walk. But through intense determination and an equally consuming relationship with God, she not only learned to walk but to fly--across hundreds of finish lines as world-class wheelchair marathoner. In her powerful autobiography, she chronicles her flight from physical paralysis to true inner healing and spiritual freedom.
Eight-Time Boston Marathon Winner and Paralympic Athlete Shares Her Story!
