Reporter: That frame of mind is what guided her as she wrote her book. I'm talking to you now with strength and confidence. And now setting an example for people to follow that I truly believe is more important than a gold medal. And that example is the strength to persevere, the strength to overcome destruction. Reporter: Put your life back together, to pick yourself up and dust yourself off. Right. And if I can do this, just think of all the other people who can change their life too. Suzy did a lot of amazing things on the track. This might be the greatest thing she has done. Reporter: Telling her story? Telling her story. She is absolutely, positively going to help girls who are struggling right now. Reporter: Or millions of people suffering with mental disease. Exactly. Reporter: We caught up with the hamiltons in California after their move. Suzy now finding joy in simple pleasures. Daughter kylie's diving lesson, soccer with the family, and art. And through all the change, one constant -- mark, still running the real estate business, still determined to get their marriage back on track. We had an amazing marriage, I thought. Perfect. It was a great marriage. Reporter: Do you think you'll ever get back to that place? I think we have a chance. We're working on it. Reporter: Do you know how lucky you are that he stuck by you? I am one of the luckiest people ever to have somebody who cares about you so much that he didn't care about any of the ramifications that came towards him because of my behavior. Reporter: Today, Suzy can be found, not on a running track, or the Las Vegas strip, but up here in the canyons of malibu. This is one place you can go to totally get away from the world. Reporter: Her feet and her mind have stopped racing. At long last, the fast girl has learned to slow down. You've been through a lot, Suzy. I have been through a lot, and the only way that I want to go is to continue going further in a positive direction. Reporter: One step at a time? Yes.
