Author Liz Ferro shares her life journey from foster child and sexual abuse survivor to founder of a nationally recognized running organization in a uniquely uplifting memoir. Finish Line Feeling: Running with Power is scheduled for release on November 05, 2021.
With brutal honesty, author Liz Ferro writes about her own experiences of trauma, and how running, biking, and swimming pulled her through the toughest times imaginable, always reminding her of her own strength and worth. She writes about the challenges she's endured with humor and heart, always looking for the meaning in each and every experience.
This inspiring, Cinderella story—which ends with Ferro being named as an honoree for Traditional Home magazine's “Classic Woman” award—will inspire all readers, no matter their story or goals. Gritty, yet often humorously told, her story proves that with resiliency, anyone can be rewarded with the euphoria she calls the "finish line feeling."
Finish Line Feeling is now available for pre-orders in paperback and eBook and is slated for a November 5th release. An Audible exclusive edition of her audiobook will be released online December 10th, 2021.
