Publisher's Summary

If you had told Helen two years ago that she would be getting up at six a.m. on Sundays to swim in a freezing reservoir and spending her Saturday nights unshowered and covered in mud in a pub, she would have spat out her champagne. But when everyone around you starts settling down, what else is a glamorous party girl to do but to launch herself into the world of endurance sport?
For someone who didn't even own a pair of flat shoes (and definitely no waterproofs), Helen would soon find she had a lot to learn.
Join Helen on her hilarious and soul-searching journey as she swaps a life of cocktail bars and dating for the challenges and exhilaration of triathlons, trail runs, obstacle races, long-distance cycles and ocean swims...and sets herself the seemingly impossible goal of qualifying as a Team GB triathlete.

Great read

Great story. Hard to understand sometimes due heavy British accent. Definitely suggest to my friends.

This Girl Writes Well ... and narrates brilliantly to boot

This is an extremely well written book about mostly the drive to push yourself to see how far your body can go in terms of running, cycling and swimming. Ms. Croydon is a born communicator putting her points of view across in a great story with passion and wit. When I said "about mostly" earlier I meant that her story is also about finding - without perhaps consciously meaning to - people to share the warmth and companionship and joy and then even someone to share love ... at just the right time. An excellent read - completely outside my usual reading zone - but This Girl Did Well!
