Just the inspiration I needed to get off the couch

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! I wish there was a way I could get my friends to sit down and listen for a few minutes, to get them hooked as well.

What did you like best about this story?

This is a REAL person with issues I can relate to. Not unattainable, just lots of hard work.

Which character – as performed by Angela Ellis – was your favorite?

Swim/bike/run mom.

Any additional comments?

I love the dry humor and wit that kept me interested while I was learning valuable tips on becoming a triathlete should I accept the challenge. I have just enough exposure to cycling to really appreciate her references to the queen for example. So motivational to listen to someone ordinary become extraordinary!

The author is really the only character, other than her trainer and husband she talks about.

What three words best describe Angela Ellis’s voice?

She isn't a bad reader. I just don't think she has the same sense of humor as the author that let her emote the subject the way the author would have.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
