“Sole Sisters” – Stories of Women and Running
I picked up “Sole Sisters” on a cloudy Sunday afternoon. I curled up on the couch and expected to browse through just a couple of the stories before falling asleep, as is my usual routine when reading. Twenty-one stories later I was still wide awake and feeling the need to lace up my running shoes.

“Sole Sisters” is an inspiring collection of twenty-one short stories. Each one is very different but they all give a glimpse into the lives of some very special women with one thing in common, running. You will be inspired by these stories of elite runners, cancer survivors, a young girl with an eating disorder, a young woman dealing with the death of a loved one on 9/11 and many more.

Somewhere within “Sole Sisters” you will see yourself and identify with the joy, heartache, elation and pure friendship that is shared within a running community, a community full of delightful, joyful, tragic and inspirational stories of life and a support system you won’t find anywhere else. I left behind my ‘sole sisters’ four years ago when I returned to my homeland after 13 years in the USA and through Jennifer & Susan’s collection of stories I have relived many of those 13 years of running.

If you are a runner or feel that you have a runner inside just waiting for the inspiration to be ‘set free’, pick up a copy of “Sole Sisters” and enjoy ‘the run’. At the end of each story you will find yourself eager to read on and be further inspired. Somewhere there is a group of sole sisters on an early morning run, just waiting to hear your story.
