Short collection of essays from various sources, some from editors of Runner's World magazine, others were siblings, other athletes, etc . Excellent overall picture of this incredible woman and what she gave to the running and track and field community. Her influence across Norway is also amazing. Wish I were younger so I could investigate further and perhaps run!
Enjoyed reading this collection of RW stories about Grete Waitz. She was an amazing runner, indeed!
