Book Announcement


From The Fieldhouse Asheville:

"ASHEVILLE, N.C. (October 31, 2018) – I’m excited to announce that on April 1, 2019, my next book “Underdog – Kim Conley & the Making of an Unexpected Olympian”will be released. 

From a stunning finish at the 2012 US Olympic Trials that propelled her into the London Games, to an odds-defying return trip to the 2016 Rio Olympics, Kim’s story is an authentic, inspiring compass for runners and non-runners alike. It’s one in which odds are defied, deeds exceed words, and a relentless work ethic is ultimately rewarded. 

Nationally, Kim’s accomplishments span the continent from a record-setting win at New York City’s storied Millrose Games in 2014, to USATF Championships in Sacramento (10,000m) and Houston (half-marathon). Hers is an American success story forged in California and taken across the country and beyond.

I’m honored to be able to bring it to print and in the upcoming weeks look for exciting details about the foreword, presale, and where and when you can purchase the book!" – Tom Flynn
