Author Lynn Petronellaabout this book: KNOW WHERE TO RUN is a true story, based on my experiences as a girl growing up in America during the 50's and the turbulent times of women's liberation of the 60's, 70's. Raised as the first girl in a Catholic home in NY, I had been born to believe I was considered "equal", the journey of this book, my story, as an Olympic Pioneer, and how I became involved in helping to make Olypmic history, was a transformation I never expected leading my life in a completely altered divine direction, which changed the course of not only my life through running the marathon, but helped make Olympic history when I coached Joan Benoit to be the first woman in history to win the Olympics in the first woman's marathon ever in history in 1984.

That single event shattered many preconceived notions about womanhood, our capabilities and our worth in the USA as well as in the world, and has ushered in a time of greater opportunity for many women. My greatest achievement has been the development of my GOLD MEDALS for mothers, which came out of my racing and marathon running experience, and my desire to make a difference in the world by selling our WORLDS GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT medallions to the world to raise money for women and children in the US and around the world.

My book was featured at the 2012 Olypmic Games with the medals and the Queen of England in this story last year and we plan to develop it into an inspirational film, Chariots of Fire meets Slumdog MIllionaire. - Full Circle Olympic Dream
