Inhaltsangabe: Rebecca Rusch is one of the great endurance athletes of her generation, relentlessly fast on her feet, on the water, or racing a bike. She began her journey with an unceremonious start by joining the high school track team to score a free tracksuit. This scrawny Chicago kid soon abandoned her predictable life, heading from home to wander the world and find adventure. Trekking through Borneo, mountain climbing in Patagonia, navigating the rivers of Vietnam, racing bikes across the Andes Rusch s voyages saw her discover the adrenalin sport of adventure racing, stare down her doubts and fears, witness the tragic death of a friend, and rise toward a glass ceiling in sports. "Rusch to Glory" is set in the exotic locales and extreme conditions that forged an extraordinary athlete from ordinary roots. Known today as the Queen of Pain for her incredible perseverance against all odds, Rebecca Rusch tells her story of transformation to inspire anyone to discover their own greatness. "

Rezension:

In a world that too often settles for mediocrity and conformity, Rebecca knows that the secret to success is being your best in all you do. And once you establish that baseline, you push through it. Mark Burnett, producer of Eco-Challenge and Survivor, from the foreword to "Rusch to Glory"

There is perhaps no one who defines jack-of-all-trades better than Rebecca Rusch. For more than 20 years, Rusch has explored her physical ability full of determination, without relent. Her drive as an ultra-endurance athlete and one of the most successful endurance mountain bikers in the world has brought her to success in just about every kind of adventure sport imaginable. Her compelling story of disappointment, heartbreak, and resilience is recounted in her book. VeloNews.com

"Rusch to Glory" is an easy read just sit back and relax and follow Rusch through her various endeavors. She does all the suffering, so you don't have to. It may be the perfect book to give an aspiring young female athlete who is or will soon confront her own demons. When facing or about to face these kind of obstacles on the path to success, it's nice to know you're not alone and have a good example to follow. CyclingNews.com

Reba s 50% hard core racer, 50% advocate, 50% adventure seeker, and 100% inspiration. That adds up to 250%, which is just about right for her. And if you don t already want to be just like her (I do), you will by the time you read the fun, funny, and always-down-to-earth story of her life. ["Rusch to Glory"] is a fantastic book, by a fantastic person. "Fat Cyclist"

Rebecca Rusch turned to the bike to cement her position as one of the best endurance athletes in the world. VeloNews

Rebecca is probably the greatest endurance mountain biker in history male or female. "Singletrack magazine"

Rebecca's book "Rusch to Glory" is as unique as she is, yet her journey toward achievement is universal and will touch anyone who has yearned to do more. Her book reminds me in many ways of one of my favorite books, Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Rusch to Glory pulls you along on an amazing, fascinating, courageous, yet very human, imperfect, and vulnerable journey. Patti DeNucci, author and speaker

Rebecca Rusch is proof that will and tenacity are far more important than any other life skill a person can possess. It's not just about the athletic feats, no matter how numerous and ludicrously awesome hers are. The fact that she succeeded, time and again, at a new sport (and a new life!) is a testament to hard work, intellectual curiosity, teamwork, and the attitude of a champion. And that lives in all of us. Robyn Benincasa, World Champion Adventure Racer, CNN Hero, Guinness World Record Holder, Founder/Minister of Dreams, Project Athena Foundation

Rebecca Rusch [was] not just one of the top female racers out there, she [was] flat-out one of the best all-around [adventure] racers of either sex. Jacques Boutet, professional adventure racer"

Dubbed the Queen of Pain by one adventure sports publication, Rusch would rather think of herself as the Queen of Perseverance. She s not the strongest, the tallest or the fastest athlete out there, but she prides herself on never giving up. "Sports Illustrated"
