Reviews

The greatest show of courage in the history of Wide World of Sports.--ABC's Wide World of Sports host Jim McKay
For pure drama in the essence of sport, and finding yourself somehow, some way, in the most demanding of circumstances . . . there's a reason this has stayed with me for all these years. It is the greatest display of courage I've ever seen in a sports event.--Armen Keteyian, New York Times bestselling author and former Chief Correspondent, CBS Sports and 60 Minutes
More than any other in history, Julie's race in 1982 was a display of indomitable strength in the human body and spirit, and changed the face of triathlon and of Ironman forever. Her story captures the profound and positive impact that ironman and one race can have on someone's entire life, and will undoubtedly inspire and encourage all who read it.--Chrissie Wellington, Four-time Ironman World Champion and author of To the Finish Line and A Life Without Limits
A courageous account of dealing with disappointment as an athlete and an individual, and a powerful testament to the importance of not giving up on oneself.
