In an emotional and heartwarming true story by author Christine Wodke, Running for My Life: Winning for CMT follows the tremendous journey undertaken by the author as she trains for and then participates in marathons and triathlons, all the while dealing with Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disorder. Readers will experience all of the difficulties and challenges that Christine herself faces every day while training, the grueling effect that her passion has on her body, and will feel the tremendous joy and satisfaction that she has as she finishes her goal races. Author Christine Wodke can serve as an almost heroic ambassador for Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disorder, the "biggest disease that no one has heard of," and her book serves as a testimony that people can overcome difficulties and carry out their dreams, no matter what their circumstances.
I very much enjoyed Running for My Life: Winning for CMT. Author Christine Wodke has done a wonderful job in writing a story that her readers will be able to connect with, even if they had previously been unfamiliar with CMT. All people have their own challenges in life, and many let those challenges get in the way of what they truly want. Author Wodke serves as an example of a person who has fought through her challenges to achieve a great deal, and her story is a shining beacon of hope for others. I highly recommend this book to any reader looking for an inspirational true story. I certainly hope that author Christine Wodke will continue to share her journey and that we might see another book from her in the future. I, for one, would certainly love to read it!
