Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

Eight-Time Boston Marathon Winner and Paralympic Athlete Shares Her Story!

Jean Driscoll was named 25th of the top 100 women athletes in the century by Sports Illustrated for Women. Born with spina bifida (a hole in the spine), Jean was never supposed to walk. But because of her intense determination and true grit, she not only learned to walk but to fly — in a wheelchair across the finish line.

In her autobiography, Jean chronicles her flight from physical paralysis to true spiritual freedom. She shows us what perseverance can achieve and points us to the power of a God who gives courage and hope to overcome countless obstacles.
