About a year ago I began working with Lacie Whyte through her company Swirlgear. We formed a friendship over the next few months and then early this year she proposed an idea to me. She felt what was lacking in the running world were inspirational stories of women runners who fell in between the absolute extremes. Her feelings echoed something I had touched on briefly in my second book, 138,336 Feet to Pure Bliss, but had not fully developed. Obviously, I thought she was exactly right.
Fast forward most of this year and we are happy to have filled the void that was lacking in the running world. I am happy to announce my book collaboration with Lacie is now complete and ready for sale!
Running With The Girls is a unique perspective on what truly makes a tale inspiring. We all love the account of the underdog overcoming insurmountable odds. However, this overlooks many stories of women, of all ages, races and runs of life, whose own narratives showcase the strength and resolve of the millions out there who never get their story told.
Focusing on seventeen vastly different women, Running With The Girls highlights the challenges of these women’s lives and how they have fought to get to where they are today. Not every story necessarily has the happiest of endings but fortunately none of the stories for the women in this book have ended yet. Regardless of whether all things are right in the lives of these women, every reader can draw motivation from the accounts of their lives as they represent us all.
Combining these uplifting accounts with a look at where women’s running has come from, where it is now, and where we can expect it to go in the future, Running With The Girls is unlike any book you have ever read.
If you are looking for the perfect holiday gift for the runner in your family, or anyone who likes to read about those who inspire, look no further.
