Have you ever fallen in love? Have you ever felt the glorious joy of a crisp autumn day or the poignant beauty of a setting sun? Have you ever railed at injustice or wanted to make the world a better place? Have you ever pondered the deeper questions of life?

If your answer is, “Yes” to any of these questions, this book is for you.

The journey of Bobbi Gibb is one of the most unique stories of our time. In her own completely original way, Bobbi Gibb challenges and questions the beliefs, superstitions, customs and habits that keep us bound to false maps of reality.

Her historic accomplishment of being the first woman to ever run the Boston Marathon in 1966, and three time women’s winner, is only the beginning of her contributions to the world.

Her transformative and integrative philosophical and spiritual insights build a foundation for an entirely new way of viewing nature and our place in it that will inspire and move you.

Read this heartwarming, often humorous, compelling first person narrative and share with Bobbi the excitement of her adventures and the passion of her discoveries.
