Little Steps, Big Feat: Lessons from one woman's walk around the world
On August 1, 1999, Polly Letofsky left her Colorado home and headed west. She traveled across 4 continents, 22 countries, and over 14,000 miles -- by foot -- to become the first woman to walk around the world. As an awareness campaign for breast cancer, survivors and well-wishers around the world came out to walk with her. Every day strangers welcomed her into their homes and shared meals. Across four continents she had dinner conversations with poets, politicians, country singers, olive growers, pig farmers and the female bomb maker in Australia. The world had embraced her. But in the middle of Polly’s five-year journey, the world suddenly shifted on its axis when September 11 flung us all into a crossroads in world history. Polly’s GlobalWalk has been featured in over 2,000 media outlets around the world including Good Housekeeping, CNN International, The CBS Early Show, NBC’s Your Total Health, and Fine Living Channel’s Radical Sabbatical. A documentary Polly’s GlobalWalk has been aired on PBS around the country. Her book, 3mph: The Adventures of One Woman’s Walk Around the World has been awarded Best Memoir at the 2011 National IPPY (Independent Book Publishers Association) Book Awards, and Best Memoir at the 2011 Writer’s Digest Best Book Awards. It's also available in audio and a documentary. As an international speaker, Polly richly details her journey with humor and honest reflection, compelling us to conquer life’s challenges -- one step at a time.
