StarTribune: Brave Enough

Travel with Olympic gold medalist Jessie Diggins on her compelling journey from America’s heartland to international sports history, navigating challenges and triumphs with rugged grit and a splash of glitter

I’ve been busy promoting my book, “Brave Enough,” which came out this spring. Releasing a book during a pandemic isn’t something I’d recommend to anyone, and most of the time it feels silly and wrong to promote something during times like these. Yet it’s been incredibly uplifting to hear readers responses to the book and see how it’s given people something to do while at home with more downtime. So I hope that this book leaves people excited and inspired to get outside and get moving once it’s safe to do so. It’s been really incredible interacting with readers through their messages on social media or questions on live events I’ve been doing, and seeing what skiing and sport in general means to so many families!
