“Finish Line Feeling” – A Runner’s Must Read
Wow. That is the first word that comes to mind.
Secondly, Liz is a SUPER HERO.
I don’t want to give too much away, but Liz takes you on an amazing emotional journey through her past. She reminds us to keep dreaming, to keep pushing forward, and most importantly to keep hoping.
Liz, the founder of Girls With Sole, gives us permission to find joy and wonder through athletics. She insists that each and every one of us has an athlete inside of us, waiting… wanting… to break through.
One of my favorite passages: …”you know the feeling of electrifying empowering excitement at the finish line … At that moment you cross the finish line, you are the most extraordinary person you can be and you feel as if you can do anything. I wanted to bottle that feeling and give it to girls who needed it most. Girls With Sole is for any girl who feels as though she is not good enough, worthless, alone, bullied, ugly, stupid, put down, neglected, abused, or simply in need of a boost of her self esteem.”
Simply put, you NEED to read this book.
Because Liz is the most awesome, she will give one lucky person their very own copy! How to win?? Post a comment on the blog answering the question, “what has running given to you?” You have until 3/20 to participate.
Hugs and High Fives.
