In her own words, the inspiring true story of an endurance runner who finds her character put to the test by an unthinkable personal tragedy. Lee DiPietro discovered the exhilaration of endurance athletics when she ran her first half marathon in her late twenties. From that day forward, she took on every race that she could, and despite having to juggle running with her responsibilities as a wife and mother, she quickly established herself as one of the best runners in the United States. Over the next thirty years Lee won race after race, competing in everything from local 5Ks to the three most challenging endurance races of all: the Boston Marathon, New York City Marathon, and Ironman triathlon. What she did not foresee, as she climbed the ranks of the endurance world, was the role running would play in helping her persevere in the face of great adversity. When her husband was diagnosed with cancer and her son suffered a devastating accident, Lee found herself falling back on the lessons she learned as a marathoner to help her prevail in the struggle to save her family. In Against the Wind, she takes us through her harrowing yearlong fight for the lives of her husband and son. This is a story that will resonate with anyone whose life has been affected by cancer, as well as all those who are dedicated to endurance sports. It proves that running is more than a pastime, far from just a test of one’s mettle. It is, for many people, quite simply a matter of life and death.

Longlisted for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year 2012. On October 14, 1989, driven by one of the most intense and lasting two-man rivalries in any sport, a pair of generational talents at the height of their powers ran a race that redefined human limits. The battle between Dave Scott and Mark Allen at the 13th Hawaii Ironman stands as one of the most dramatic stories in the history of athletics. The two greatest athletes of triathlon's pioneering generation raced side by side, literally, for eight straight hours at breakneck speed before Allen finally tore away from his longtime nemesis with less than two miles left in the 140.6-mile event. His margin of victory was a scant 58 seconds. So intense was the drama, the race came to be known as 'Iron War' - the single most awe-inspiring sporting event ever witnessed. More than a compelling story, Iron War is a fascinating exploration of how Scott and Allen pushed themselves and each other - and what it takes for anyone to break through perceived limits. Much as Christopher McDougall added depth to Born to Run by tying in new research on the evolutionary origins of humans as runners, Iron War shows how new discoveries in neuroscience explain how some elite athletes are able to literally will their bodies to do things that should be beyond their capacities. The book weaves an examination of the anatomy of mental toughness into a gripping tale of athletic adventure. With its emotional and intellectual depth, Iron War is a captivating and thought-provoking portrait of the human will.
