Rusch to Glory: Adventure, Risk & Triumph on the Path Less Traveledby: Rebecca Rusch — Autobiography
Publish Date: Oct 01, 2014
Rebecca Rusch is one of the great endurance athletes of her generation, but she began her journey toward greatness from an ordinary beginning. A scrawny, asthmatic kid from Chicago who leaned toward lazy, Rusch graduated college with top honors and soon abandoned a predictable life, heading from home to wander the world and find adventure. Borneo, Patagonia, Vietnam, Rusch's rambling saw her discover adventure racing, stare down her demons, witness the tragic death of a friend, and jar against the glass ceiling in sports.
Today, Rusch is a 3-time world champion mountain biker and a 4-time winner of the grueling Leadville 100 trail race. This unremarkable kid from Chicago is now known as the "Queen of Pain" for her remarkable perseverance against all odds. Rusch to Glory shows how one woman went from ordinary to extraordinary and how anyone can discover their own greatness.
