Veronica Carrera-Author- "140 Miles of Life"

Veronica Carrera is the author of 140 Miles of Life: A Remarkable Journey to Self-Acceptance & Love. Her memoir details her upbringing as an immigrant from Ecuador, realizing her sexual orientation while being a member of the Mormon church, grappling with her identity, falling in love, and struggling to find self-acceptance.

Her entire story is told through the framing of the grueling Ironman Race, which Carrera accomplished. The athletic feat requires the completion of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run.
