Be Brave Be Strong

I just finished reading "Be brave be strong" A journey Across the Great Divide by Jill Homer. Jill is an Ultra endurance athlete who takes on the challenge of doing the "Tour Divide" a 2740 mile Mountain bike race from Canada to Mexico along the Continental Divide. It's hard to imagine pushing oneself to one's mental and physical limit every day for 24 strait days. Through injuries, mechanical breakdowns, epic struggle and triumph I'm truly in awe of how she taps into her personal strengths to complete such an event. This is a book about the incredible ability of humans to persevere both physically and emotionally,  and a lesson that our limits are much greater than most of us allow ourselves to believe. Jill's personal journey provides the ultimate inspiration,  a book that truly keeps your attention right to the end.
