Full Book Title: A Medal with Mouse Ears One Woman's Journey to Running the Walt Disney World Marathon
Author Name: Mary Townsend
Book Synopsis: This is a personal journey of a woman, mother, and career nurse, who at age 49, struggles to find herself, physically, emotionally, and spiritually through the challenges, doubts, and sacrifices in the quest of her heart's dream; to finish the 26.2-mile Walt Disney World Marathon. As a result of this inspiring journey, she is transformed into an independent, courageous woman who discovers her own self-acceptance and spiritual strength, through perseverance, focus, and finally reaching the accomplishment of her goal, along with love, happiness, and the joy that was missing from her life. Each segment of the author's quest is recorded with deep soul-searching as she clings to her belief that "dreams do come true, if only one has the courage to believe with the heart", (Walt Disney); the power of intention and self-determination as expressed and promised through "Disney Magic," resonates throughout the book.
Author Bio: Years have passed and my medal with mouse ears hangs where I see it every day. It still remains the most powerful reminder of how important it is to be brave when pursuing my heart's innermost desires, and how important it is to love one's self enough to grow and change, no matter how diﬃcult. I no longer run. Crossing the ﬁnish line at the Walt Disney World Marathon was the last time I was able to stride. I continue to keep active and eat healthy. I continue to work as a Registered Nurse and practice a holistic view of wellness and of life, which reminds us that the mind, body, and spirit are all interconnected. I have authored 5 professional articles related to Holistic Nursing, linking the mind-body-spirit with nursing . My Reiki practice is a daily commitment and the cornerstone of my belief that we are all connected in life, with light, by love. I wish you much joy, peace, and happiness as you pursue the dreams of your heart.
