Rachael Steil is the author of Running in Silence, writes articles about running and eating disorders for RunnerClick.com, and is a speaker and advocate. Steil is a high school cross country coach, and is a recipient of the Spirit and Outstanding Runner award for the Aquinas College cross country team and was 6th and 7th place NAIA All-American in cross country and track.

I love connecting with my readers, and public speaking about eating disorders to share my story, create awareness, offer tools for recovery, and bring hope. I am available for phone, Skype, or personal consultations. You can find me here:
