Derby High School graduate, Nicole Rizzo, will be here to discuss her book, Running on Thin Ice.

At ten years old, Nicole Rizzo discovered cross country running. The sport was a gift - with it came chaotic runs fueled by Bugles, an eccentric coach, and hilarious teammates.  Before long, the laughter faded, and everything shifted. She slipped into a battle with overexercising, undereating, and perfectionism.  Forced to heal if she wanted to live fully, she uprooted the destructive habits of her past and unearthed what it really means to be strong.

Running on Thin Ice traces a journey of past selves and captures those painful, unsettling, and beautiful moments that show it’s possible to grab hold of solid ground and escape the frigid water just in time.
