Summary:
"A sportswriter turned triathlete and distance runner, Amy Moritz became an adult-onset athlete in her 30s. While in love with the sport and all it brought her, she was nagged by a lingering question: Was she really an athlete? Through this memoir, Amy describes her own journey to defining herself as an athlete and explores why it can be so challenging for women, of all abilities, to do the same." -- Amazon.
