About Stacy Holden
Stacy Holden is a native Houstonian, and began running at seven years old, only to be diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and celiac disease three years later. Through these health hardships, her exercise habits never faltered, and in 1988, she and her parents began training at Houston’s Memorial Park. After 25 years of running at the Park, Stacy started thinking about all of the people who she recognized, but did not know their names, much less their stories. Her desire to learn more inspired her to track them down
and write a book. Since the book's debut at the top of Amazon's Hot New Releases, Stacy has continued her efforts to meet new individuals in a weekly blog at peopleofmemorialpark.com.
