If you ever thought you knew what was going on in the head of that champion you see on TV, you have no idea until you have read this book. For perhaps the first time, the complexity and intensity of the athletes psyche is revealed in this beautifully written memoir.
Rod Dixon, Olympic and World Championship medallist, and winner of the 1983 New York City Marathon

LORRAINE MOLLER is one of New Zealands greatest women distance runners. Four times an Olympic contender, winner of three Avon Womens Marathons, winner of the Boston Marathon, three times the winner of the Osaka international Ladies Marathon, and a Commonwealth Games medallist, she is indeed a living legend of the running world.
Lorraine began running barefoot with her father near her home in Putaruru and went on to win a bronze medal in the marathon at the 1992 Barcelona Summer Olympic Games. Here, in her own words, Lorraine looks back on a golden era of athletics in New Zealand and the personalities she ran with Arthur Lydiard, Dick Quax, rod Dixon, Anne Audain, Allison roe and others. She traces her development as a world-class competitor and reveals the strategies and coping techniques that took her to the world stage. A longtime battler for equality and professionalism in distance running, Lorraine is upfront about her struggles with officialdom.
With the roman god Mercury as her guide, Lorraine competed with immense courage and determination at the highest level. Here is a candid, personal story of an extraordinary life: intense, insightful and highly entertaining.
