RUNNING WITH THE ANTELOPE (HC)
A hard cover book.
This beautiful memoir tells the story of Melanie’s remarkable journey, from the agricultural village of Mott to world duathlon and triathlon competitions, then a splendid career as a physical therapist, director of the Sanford Women’s Health Center in Bismarck, North Dakota, and a widely sought-after motivational speaker.
Melanie learned to run on the northern Great Plains where the winters are long and harsh and the wind tests the human spirit. Running with the Antelope inspires readers to begin a program of athletic training, weight loss, or general self-improvement.
Written in a humble and accessible style, with loving anecdotes about her life as a top athlete and her work as a physical therapist, Running with the Antelope is part self-help book and part prairie memoir.
