I am a fan of true stories so when I came across Can't Bring Me Down, the story of Ida Keeling, a 100 plus year old woman runner, I had to read it! In this book she shares with us growing up in Harlem during the depression. She, along with the co-author, Anita Diggs, do a great job of putting you there.

What I was surprised about was that very little of the book was dedicated to her actual running career. I would love to have heard more of the stories of these races, but it felt like an after thought at the end of the book. I would still recommend the book, but finished it wishing for more.

I received a copy of this book to review. All opinions are 100% mine.
