Hola friends! The book I have been working on for most of the year has just been released on Kindle. I am so proud of it! The hard copy will be follow in about a week and autographed copies will be available as well.
About the book:
What does it mean to be a female in endurance sport? Hundreds of women open up about their realities as athletes, wives, girlfriends and mothers. From the intimacy of the bedroom to the community of competition, some of these stories will encourage and uplift. Others will surprise and infuriate. Welcome to the beautiful and complicated world of strong women.
“Read Daughters of Distance if you’d like to learn about women’s running history, how women’s bodies and minds are made to excel in endurance sports, the still-present gender inequalities in distance running, how women juggle running and motherhood, the intertwinement of our passion for running and our relationships, and much more. With this book, Vanessa opens our eyes and hearts to women’s distance running, and starts a conversation that will evolve our sport.” – Meghan M. Hicks, Senior Editor, iRunFar.com
