Summary
Mirna Valerio has tied on her running shoes all across the country, from the dusty back roads of central New Jersey, to the busy Route 222 corridor in Pennsylvania, to the sweltering deserts of Arizona. When someone meets her on the trail, they might be surprised to see she doesn't quite fit the typical image of a long-distance runner. She's neither skinny nor white, and she's here to show just how misguided these stereotypes can be. In this prejudice-busting, body-positive memoir told with raw honesty, an adventurous spirit, and a sharp sense of humor, Valerio takes listeners along on her journey from first-time racer to ultramarathoner and proves that anyone can become a successful athlete
