About the Author

Cami Ostman grew up in a depressed Seattle suburban area and attended school with other blue-collar kids. She graduated from Western Washington University with a BA in education, and from Seattle Pacific University with an MA in marriage and family therapy. She took up running to catch her breath during her divorce. In the process, she discovered the marathon and, ultimately, a new perspective on life that she now shares with others, in therapy and in lectures. She is a licensed marriage and family therapist with a private practice, and has a special interest in supporting women going through transitional periods as they create experiences that will help them live more authentically and freely.

Ostman currently runs between twenty and forty miles each week as part of her own commitment to self-discovery. She belongs to the Greater Bellingham Running Club, and participates in races as short as five kilometers and as long as 26.2 miles (so far), always running at the back of the pack with her head held high.

Cami Ostman lives in Bellingham, Washington with her husband, Bill Pech, and their dogs, cat and lizard.
