Sally Rash is the author of the practical self-help book, Sally's Silly Small Step System. Her system was put in place when her sons were preschoolers.  

After becoming a member of the local Toastmasters in Florence, Oregon, her interest in speaking to inspire grew.  At the time, she was using the Small Step System in her daily life.  At the International Speech Contest, her speech, titled "Sally's Silly Small Step System," went on to the District level. By then, a number of people asked her to put her practical ideas into a book.

She has been a student of Japanese language and culture for many years. She considers it a good mind stretch, and has made several enjoyable trips to Japan. She lives with her husband, Jim, in Florence, Oregon.

When I was 61 years old, I decided I wanted to do a marathon. We started training in January and in October we walked 26 miles, 385 yards! One step at a time. — from page 17 of Sally's book
