Chasing Grace: What the Quarter Mile Has Taught Me about God and Life by Sanya Richards-Ross tells the honest and very transparent journey of an Olympian who has experienced both heartbreak and triumph.
This book skillfully walks readers through very intricate and personal details that Sanya had to confront on the road to excellence.
She credits her relationship with God, family, great coaches and hard work for the strength and ability that resulted in her winning four Olympic gold medals.
Her path to victory was woven through cultural challenges and conflicts, personal disappoints and betrayals. Through them all she remained true to herself. Her story of determination and focus will create and plant seeds of hope in readers to abandon their excuses and run toward their goals no matter what.
I have always admired Sanya’s athletic achievements, but after reading her book I came
away feeling as if I had truly met someone that exemplifies godly character on and off the track and field.
This book was very enjoyable and I highly recommend it to others, especially if you enjoy taking a peak behind the curtain to see what a successful person’s journey to success looks like.
If you would like to learn more, you can check the book out on Amazon.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.
