My Road to Rome: The Running Times of BJ McHugh (Sandhill $18.95 2011) recounts how Vancouver's BJ McHugh became the world's fastest senior long-distance runner for her age group. A farmer's daughter who was born at a time when few women ever dreamed of running marathons, McHugh, now in her eighties, only took up running in her fifties. Her memoir of courage and determination was co-written with Bob Nixon. 9780986905407
