The Finish Line isn’t the end – it’s the beginning of what’s possible!
“Finish Line Feeling” is an uplifting and inspiring, yet raw and honest memoir of a young girl conquering the wrongs in her life by using unwavering determination, athleticism, and spirit.
Liz Ferro clearly articulates the internal struggles of growing up female. Both her toils and her triumphs are immense, and her story is one that is relatable to every woman.

Girls With Sole proudly gives a copy of “Finish Line Feeling” to each girl in the program who is age 13 and over, and ready to “Lace Up for a Lifetime of Achievement.”
Response from the teens (and adults) who have read it has been incredible. Both the book, and the organization, provide young women with the opportunity to tell their own story, find their own strength, and use their resilience to keep moving forward.

“Finish Line Feeling” is Available on Amazon!

Also available At Barnes & Noble!

Liz’s Book is Truly Inspirational
By Borny

“Finish Line Feeling” is a truly inspirational book. You can feel Liz’s positive energy and enthusiasm through her novel. She gives an honest view of her past, leaving nothing out. Liz’s narration and sense of humor made it as if she was my best friend simply recounting past experiences while we were on a run together! She made the best out of her countless predicaments and seemed to look back and laugh at it. Reading about her numerous mental, physical, and personal victories, it made it feel as if you too had succeeded with her. That is the effect Liz has on people. After I finished reading this book I wanted to jump up and go for a run. If Liz has gone through so much hardships and is still smiling and running Ironmans, the least I can do is get off the couch and jog!

Overcome evil with good.
By Amy Richards

Liz Ferro writes honestly and openly about her traumatic experiences and how she overcame them. Liz demonstrates courage and an indomitable will to not only overcome the terrible things that happened to her but to use her experiences to help young women facing similar struggles. I am thankful for the example Liz sets to the girls she mentors and for the vision she casts in this book. Many people struggle, some make it by, but Liz goes extra miles in overcoming evil with good through Finish Line Feeling and her organization Girls with Sole!
