Publisher's Summary

Known worldwide for her mental fortitude, hardcore training tactics, and an ability to push through extreme discomfort, pro athlete Sally McRae’s strength wasn’t built in the gym. For the first time, McRae candidly tells her shocking story of abuse, loss, and wild resilience that laid the foundation for the woman she is today. In this powerful memoir, Sally bypasses the often-loud sea of motivational quotes and hyped ideas about what it means to be strong, cutting right to the core of every human with her gentle yet firm reminders that we are all strong!

Honest, relatable, and raw, every listener will connect with Sally’s story and see how they too can overcome even the most difficult situations in life and sport. Choose Strong is a story for everyone from every age and walk of life looking to live their strongest life.

Absolutely brilliant, I love having Sally in my ears telling her story

I have followed Sally for several years as an Ultra Runner, I eagerly anticipate every Podcast she puts out, I follow some of her strength training programs on her App, my kids & I have watched her running movies & I have read her book. Sally is an incredible woman who continues to inspire me, she helps me find the strength within me & realise we are stronger from challenges we have endured. Listening to Sally tell her story is humbling, thought provoking, hard in so many aspects however it is massively inspiring. Sally you are an absolute legend & force to be reckoned with! Love your work - do the work 🤩🥰

A story of raw honesty and hope

I've been searching for an inspiring female voice that represents strength, joy, perserverance and positivity, and I'm so thrilled to have found Sally McRae. Her storytelling is generous and heart full. It is so much more than a book about elite competitive ultra running. Ultimately, I found it to be a story of love, courage and hope. Thank you, Sally.

A MUST listen

An audio book that was incredibly well read by Sally herself. I highly recommend this audio book to everyone and also highly recommend having a box of tissues handy. It was such an inspirational story about choosing strength and hope when everything seems lost. I admired Sally before but that admiration is just so much deeper now. Cannot wait for the second book as I will be buying both the physical book and the audio book. Thank you Sally for choosing strong. 💛

Vulnerability is strength.

“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity.” -Brene Brown

Sally, thank you for being vulnerable. Thank you for opening your heart to us. Thank you for making me cry. Thank you for making me open my heart and think about my life and my strengths.

Between your book, your podcast and your Facebook community, I feel like I’ve been welcomed with a massive hug to the Choose Strong community. For that, I’m thankful. Now … to go listen to your book again (and wait for your next one to come out 😁)

Oh, and thank you Eddie! We don’t forget about you 😁
