In Rusch to Glory: Adventure, Risk & Triumph on the Path Less Traveled, Rebecca weaves her story among the exotic locales and extreme conditions that forged an extraordinary athlete from ordinary roots. While she might seem like a superhuman playing out a fistful of aces, her empowering story proves that anyone can rise above self-doubt to find their true potential. Through decades as a pro athlete, beginning with ultra-endurance adventure races all over the world, Rebecca continually redefined her limits, emerging ready for the next great challenge. Facing a tough decision at age 38--retire or reinvent herself yet again--Rebeca shifted her focus to endurance mountain bike racing, riding straight into the record books at a juncture when most pros hang it up. Rusch to Glory is more than an epic story of adventure; it is a testament to the rewards of hard work, determination, and resilience on the long road to personal and professional triumph.
