Are you ready for some inspiration from a woman who has pushed limits, challenged herself and gained insight and perspective along the way?
I have never been a skier, but have great respect for the skill and courage that athletes like Kit DesLauriers demonstrate.
After winning the World Freeskiing Championship two years in a row, she set her sights on a personal goal that no other man or woman had achieved. She wanted to climb and ski the highest peak on each of the seven continents.
This journey was an amazing accomplishment and, of course, impacted her personally in unexpected ways. In addition to the challenges of climbing up the mountains, there was the challenge of the ride back down.
The book is fascinating. As a non-skier, I enjoyed it. Those of you who do ski or participate in other adrenaline inducing sports will probably enjoy it even more.
