Ed Rahill To Release Historical Memoir “One Mile at a Time”


Debut Book Tells Rahill’s Heartfelt Journey of Overcoming Impossible Odds Through the Power of the Human Spirit

Ed Rahill, first-time author, cross-country road race record holder, and former CEO of NextEra Energy’s GridLiance, announces the upcoming release of his historical memoir, “One Mile at a Time,” launching on June 15, 2024. Originally conceived as a letter to his children, Rahill’s memoir evolved into a profound exploration of life’s complexities, blending the thrills and challenges of road racing with the poignancy of personal redemption.

In his compelling narrative, Rahill leads readers through the exhilarating realm of cross-continental road racing, seamlessly intertwining tales of personal struggle, heartbreak, and eventual triumph. Rooted in his grandmother’s timeless wisdom, Rahill’s memoir serves as a testament to the indomitable human spirit, transcending mere storytelling to become a beacon of resilience and courage in the face of adversity.

“In life, as in road racing, it’s not about the destination but the journey. Every mile, every twist, and every turn teaches us something new about ourselves,” says Rahill. “The challenges we face and overcome define who we are and the legacy we leave behind.”


Personal Struggles

  • This memoir is about more than road racing; it also chronicles Rahill’s struggles with love and loss in his quest for self-discovery.
  • Readers are offered a poignant exploration of the human experience coupled with the importance of courage when facing uncertainties.

Power of the Human Spirit

Road Racing + Love of Cars
