"No Mountain High Enough" Raising Lance, Raising Me

I just read the book "No Mountain High Enough" by Linda Armstrong Kelly and enjoyed it from beginning to the end. Linda Armstrong Kelly is the mother of Lance Armstrong. She was only 17 years old when Lance was born and she showed Lance never to give up on your passion. She lived her life with passion and never told Lance that he couldn't do something if he truly wanted to do it. Linda had many down moments in her life but she never gave up. She was a hard worker in her endeavors with the job market and pushed herself to the highest level without regrets. So, by living this kind of life she showed Lance that hard work gave you the satisfaction of being on top.
