Sarah is an amazing woman. She didn't allow her physical handicap to discourage her dream & desire to be a renowned athlete. What an inspiration Sarah is. Easy read, entertaining & I recommend it.

What a woman! I admire Sarah for her strength and determination. I had never heard of her before coming across this book but now I will be watching for her. She has let nothing stand in her way and everytime life has thrown a hurdle her way she hasn't given up, but kept trying over and over again. She lost her leg at age seven due to a disease she was born with in which one leg is severely shorter than the other. After the age of seven, she had fake leg after fake leg, and all very different from the last. Sarah goes into detail about the legs and the process of getting the legs. I shall never complain about my hearing aides again! After a brief look into her troublesome family life, Sarah also talks about her interest and passion for running and triathlons and the paralympics. She competed in the Ironman triathlon twice and ran many marathons. She also talks about her stint on Amazing Race season ten and why that did not go as she had hoped. Life has thrown a lot of obstacles Sarah's way, but she has maintained a sense of humor through it all and a whole lot of gumption. I enjoyed her story and I have a newfound respect and understanding for amputees and what they go thru.
