Review: I Remember Running



I Remember Running: The Year I Got Everything I Ever Wanted - and ALS by Darcy Wakefield

I've passed this title numerous times on our biography shelf, and finally picked it up and read a few pages. What an amazing story!

Darcy was vegetarian, fit, athletic and only in her early 30s when she was diagnosed with ALS - also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease.

This book chronicles the months of her life between diagnosis to the birth of her little boy, in which she meets a man, marries, gets pregnant, buys a house and gives birth, all while battling her debilitating disease.

An inspiring tale from a talented writer.
