Overview

Hasn't everyone dreamed of changing their life? Well Jo Ann Miller did it and writes of it candidly and openly in her "A Marathon of Change: A Radical Transformation of a Baby Boomer." The daughter of famed fighter pilot Thomas H. Miller and goddaughter of astronaut John Glenn (who writes the Foreword for the book), Miller grew up in the midst of constant change and under the shadow of the United States Marine Corps. After emerging as a beautiful young career woman, the stress of work and life took its toll on her personality as well as her body. Faced with an embarrassing obesity, draining work demands and some horrid tragic events in her past, Ms. Miller decided to change her life. The culmination of this change is the Marine Corps Marathon in 2006 and the book follows her every stride through each mile as she reflects on the demands of the race as well as the remembrances to her past. The book deals with the loneliness of obesity, the challenge of gastric bypass surgery, the tragedy of life and death, the intimate anger of rape and finally, the joy of financial freedom and new found love. This book is a must read for anyone seeking to change their life!

    A Marathon of Changes: The Radical Transformation of a Baby Boomer

    Jo Ann Miller's Marathon of Changes: The Radical Transformation of A Baby Boomer is entertaining, enlightening and thoroughly motivating. This is one special gal and to read her book is to get to know her. She writes in a simple intimate fashion and I was captivated by her honesty and courage. The book sits on my coffee table at home so I can pick it up anytime I am feeling sorry for myself!
