A Medal with Mouse Ears


Mary Townsend

2018 Book Excellence Award Finalist in the Motivational categoryThis 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.
