    Great book

    This book is a very great book along the lines of it being about the Ironman. I like how it tells the story of how she was no special child and look at her now. She won the ironman race!

    Very inspiring

    I never thought much about IronMan before I read this book. Now I'm feeling like I want to become an IronMan myself someday. OR at least train for my first marathon.
    The book is written nicely and includes many practical tipps if you think about getting into endurance sports. It is very emotional and I found myself laughing out loud as well as moved to tears.
    Chrissie Wellington's story is just inspiring in every single aspect. Love how she connects sport and charity/trying to make a better world.
