Against the Wind: An Ironwoman's Race for Her Family's Survival

'“A riveting story of one brave woman’s fight to become a world class athlete and compete in the Ironman, and how the lessons she learned competing helped her save her family. A must read.” —Susan Butler, author of East to the Dawn: The Life of Amelia Earhart   “I have been privileged to coach and be around many great athletes, including Lee. What sets truly great athletes apart is character, and character transcends sports. Lee’s character is the star of this book about dealing with and overcoming unthinkable personal tragedy, the likes of which could only be dreamt up by some warped Hollywood fiction writer. Yet it is all true and Lee and her family survived, and we are blessed with an amazing story of a personal odyssey, which will inspire us all.” —Tracy Sundlun, former Olympic track and field coach and cofounder of the Rock ’n’ Roll Marathon series   “I have known Lee for two decades as a runner and fellow competitor. Her character is true gold and her commitment to any project she dedicates herself to, whether qualifying for the Olympic Trials or writing a book for publication, is rock solid. I know Lee’s story will be read with great interest in the running community and beyond.” —Gordon Bakoulis'
