Turned this motivation-killer off mid-run
I picked up this audiobook to listen to while training to bump up from sprints to long courses. I thought it would be motivational as Iʻm also a beginning triathlete trying to make a positive change in my busy life. However, I only got a few chapters in before the authorʻs self-hatred and paradoxical entitlement issues became unbearable. I decided Iʻd rather run in silence than listen any more. This book is also heavily Christian and mommy-focused. Not my cup of tea.
Year of Yes
No - I think the narrator added to that "Bible study leader who pretends to be friendly but is really just keeping an eye on you because her husband keeps having affairs with the choir members" vibe. Brittle, insincerely bright - this may have been the content and not the voice. Iʻm unsure.
Itʻs autobiographical - so this question isnʻt applicable.

Just the inspiration I needed to get off the couch
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.
This is a REAL person with issues I can relate to. Not unattainable, just lots of hard work.
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!
