Publisher's Summary

"It had been hours since I ran at track practice that winter, but I hadn't bothered to shower, let alone change clothes. No, I didn't have time for that, because I had found the answer to my prayers.

"This has to be it.

"Eat all the fruit you want.

"Never get fat.

"Raw. Food. Diet."

Rachael Steil clocked in as an All-American collegiate runner; she became a girl clawing for a comeback on a 30-bananas-a-day diet. This year-long struggle with raw food ended when she realized she had to find her self-respect beyond her identity as a successful runner on a perfect diet.

Running in Silence opens the door on the secret world of eating disorders. It provides vital insights for those who don't suffer from this disease and an honest and harrowing personal story for those who do. Steil challenges the stigma of eating disorders, looks past appearance, and dives into the heart of obsession.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Thank you Ms Steil"
    What did you love best about Running in Silence?

    An ingenious talented young woman who is so insightful. I play this audiobook over and over, and find it so comforting. Presents new insights and answers I have not heard before. The book also presents structured ideas (I know as a perfectionist I long for structure) to help the reader develop his or her own self care or writer's voice.


    Have you listened to any of Rachael Rose Steil’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Looking forward to future books from this wonderful author.
