In 1993, Argentina Senda was struck down by a mysterious, life-threatening illness; her doctors recommended that she have her right leg amputated. A year later-and without having gone through with the amputation surgery-a cured Senda completed her first long-distance road race. This autobiography follows one woman's journey from the brink of despair to the height of achievement. Detailing how the discipline of running has had a positive impact on Senda's life, this is a story of faith and also a means of giving thanks to God for her miraculous recovery.
Argentina Senda is an international marathoner. She qualified to run for the South African national team in 2000 and has won numerous gold, silver, and bronze medals.||Evelyn Higginbotham is the Victor S.
