Rachael Steil clocked in as an All-American collegiate runner; she became a girl clawing for a comeback on a fruitarian 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 insight 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.
“Rachael’s voice is no longer silent, but is now a guide to those looking to better their lives.”
“I am so grateful for this book. I ended my collegiate running career early partly because I have spent the past year and a half binge eating. I’m happy I could read a book so relatable to my own experience. I cannot wait for book two!”
“I absolutely loved this book! Rachael put into words the thoughts and feelings I’ve never been able to express to my family and friends. Coming from someone who had just started the recovery process, I cannot thank Rachael enough for putting her story out there. This book is perfect for anyone suffering, in recovery, those helping a friend or family member through recovery, or anyone just trying to understand the illness a little more!”
“This is a must-read for any athlete who has struggled with disordered eating! I am so grateful for Rachael’s bravery in sharing ALL aspects of her eating disorder – everyone is familiar with the issue of anorexia in running, but so few people talk about the binge-eating that almost always plagues these same runners sooner or later.”
This book is a must-read for anyone immersed in the community of distance running. Rachael articulates messy, complicated feelings very well, and reading about her experiences helped me better understand many of my own.
