    ITEM#: 13114281

    A former trial lawyer and human-rights advocate, Mina Samuels is the co-author of the recently published New York Times bestseller The Think Big Manifesto, with Michael Port. She was a regular contributor to Vermont Sports for two years, and her essay ?Tomorrow Might Not Be the Same” appeared in the collection How Running Changed My Life. Her first novel, The Queen of Cups, was published in January 2007, and she has also published personal essays in Alimentum and The French Literary Review. Samuels has also ghostwritten numerous books.

    When she’s not writing, Samuels can often be found running, cycling, swimming, cross-country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, kayaking, climbing, or doing yoga. She competes in sprint, Olympic-length, and half-ironman triathlons, marathons, and shorter-distance road races, and has participated in the Canadian Ski Marathon, a two-day, 100-mile cross-country ski event. She has hiked and backpacked in Chile, Pakistan, South Africa, Tanzania, Europe, Canada and the United States. She lives in New York, NY.
    Run Like A Girl is about the impact that participating in sports has on women?how the confidence and strength that it helps to build makes us stronger and better prepared for life's many challenges. In this inspiring book, Mina Samuels uses the personal stories of women and girls of all ages and backgrounds?as well as her own?to take a broad look at the power sports have to help us overcome obstacles in all arenas of life.

    Run Like A Girl includes the stories of a US-ranked amateur triathlete who's raising an autistic son; a thirteen-year-old girl who falls in love with cross-country running; a woman who runs her first marathon at age sixty; an investment banker who quit her job to become a yoga teacher and adopt a daughter on her own; a young mother with scoliosis who cycled her way back to health and became a jewelry designer along the way; and countless other women?including Kathrine Switzer, Rebecca Rusch, and Molly Barker?who have been changed by their experiences with sports.

    Run Like A Girl argues that physical strength lends itself to psychological strength, and that for many women, participating in sports translates into leading a happier, more fulfilling life.
