The book my SS sent me, '10 feet tall, still'. I enjoyed it, anyone else?

Great book! I read it a few years ago and loaned by copy to a friend. Her accomplishments were amazing and her perspective on things quite enjoyable. Makes me want to do a little endurance.
She is an amazing woman. I loved the book, too.
Just a few years ago when she was eighty she did the Tevis again.
Finished, I think 98 miles. I choked up like crazy when she couldn't do those last couple of miles. Later on another list she said she had "beaten the Tevis times before but this time it beat her." Someone popped up and said the way they saw it it was Julie 98, Tevis 2 and that seemed that she'd beaten it once again.
I'm 69 now and when I grow up I want to be just like her!! :)

An endurance buddy lent me that book this time a year ago. Loved, loved, loved it! Hope I am riding for many more years (I guess I am a "baby" at 37). Hmmm.... I am thinking I may just need to order a copy for myself. ;-)
