Named 25th in the top 100 women athletes of the twentieth century by Sports Illustrated for Women, Jean Driscoll is an inspiration to millions. Born with spina bifida, she was never supposed to walk. Yet through her intense determination and hard work, Jean not only learned to walk but to fly--in a racing wheelchair across the finish line. A two-time Olympic silver medalist, a twelve-time medalist in the Paralympics, and the only person ever to win the Boston Marathon eight times, Jean is a living example of what perserverance and reliance on God can do. In this powerful autobiography, Jean chronicles her flight from physical setbacks to true inner healing and spiritual freedom. Today, Jean continues to work with young adults and athletes, motivating them to dream big and work hard.
