Live It: Riding the Highs and Lows of a Cross Country Dream Hardcover – August 21, 2015
"For fans of Cheryl Strayed's Wild, this book similarly offers an inspiring, emotional journey of the permanence of love, triumph over conflict, and defining your own success." -Susan Brooks, Champagne Books Editor "I plan to buy several copies to give to friends and family, of all ages in a variety of life's circumstances. ... Anytime someone puts themselves openly out there physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially, relationally and spiritually, it challenges others to pay attention." -Ron Harrison, Major General, USA (Ret) "Reading about this epic adventure crossing the country made me remember what I love about cycling - the excitement about not knowing what lies around the next corner and the challenges that push you further than you ever dreamed possible." -Grant Potter, Pro Racer and 3 Time World Masters Stage Race Champion "The memories shared in this book provide reflection on life for all those willing to live it to its fullest. A charming read with tales of truth and perseverance linking one community to another for a worthy cause and a worthy dream." -Kristey William, Kansas State Representative "If anyone wants to feel what it is like to believe in yourself and live your dreams, then follow Tracy as she takes you on an amazing adventure across America raising money and support for our wounded veterans." -Joe Ostaszewski, Finalist NBC's Biggest Loser "I love Tracy's Live It list, and I'm even more excited that she's making her goals on it happen. But even more impressive than that is the way she's managed to blend her love of riding with a charitable slant, raising money and awareness for different causes and people as she rides. Cycling is often an admittedly selfish pursuit, so finding a way to blend cycling and charity all the time is such a great mindset for a rider to have-and that Tracy isn't a young pro racer or a lifetime cyclist only makes her journey and love of the bike that much more intriguing. She takes riding a bike and makes it a global endeavor, and her book highlights an amazing journey that clearly taught her a lot about life, and about riding! 'Live It' is great advice for anyone to take, on or off the bike." -Molly Hurford, writer at Bicycling Magazine and author of several books on cycling

Tracy's story takes you through the challenge of not only planning and accomplishing something as time consuming and challenging as a fast group bicycle ride across America but turning it into an educational and fund raising tool for a great cause, Hope for the Warriors.
She succeeded in meeting her goal for all three areas - raising funds for and educating a lot of people about Hope for the Warriors and keeping her group of diverse people together for a fast, challenging and safe bicycle ride across our country. The details of the planning, working with friends and family and the undertaking are inspirational for not only riders but anyone that wants to live a full live.
Thanks for the inspiration Tracy and go Live It.
Live It is a amazing story of Tracy Draper who was at one time that person. Tracy's passion for life and adventure is a true inspiration. Through Tracy's words and story you will begin to look out those windows and envision the day you WILL Live It. A must read not only for the cyclist but for anyone who questions if dreams can become reality.

The author has a very personnel story to tell and it is not only for bicyclist but for every person who wants to except a challenge. And even if you just like to read about victories, the book will motivate you to plan a new adventure.
As one of the team members on the ride, she really describes the ups and downs that the team had over the 31 days of cycling across all types of weather and terrain. She shows what it takes to ride 31 centuries almost back to back and be successful. It was a lot of work pulling an event of this size off and the book correctly portrays that effort.
I can REALLY tell you, that both the preparation for the ride and the ride itself was truly an incredibly journey and one that I will NEVER forget.
If you are planning a dream that seems to big or you are just planning to ride across the US, please read the book. It will help inspire you to start and complete your incredibly journey
