Annette Fredskov is a marathon runner, personal coach, public speaker and, with this book, an author. In 2009, she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis – a kick in the butt, as she calls it. When medical experts told her that she would have to take it easy and would never be able to run long distances, she set a goal of running her first marathon in October 2010. It was love at first step.
On July 14, 2013, she crossed the finish line and ran into the arms of her husband and two children after completing 366 marathons in 365 days. She is a completely ordinary woman who says, "If I can, you can. No matter what challenges life throws our way, how we handle them is always our own choice and responsibility. We decide how to proceed."
366 Marathons in 365 Days: How Positive Thinking and Determination Can Conquer All is Annette's brutally honest account of what it was like to wake up every day for one year and run 42.2 kilometers no matter what. The entire gamut of emotions is at play. This is an adventure with smiles and tears, joys and challenges. We are along every step of the way, and as Annette says, "This is who I am. This is what 366/365 was like. I have opened up my inner world completely."
This book is full of inspiration and gives readers full access to Annette's toolbox. It is about much more than marathons.
