Women's Health Winner in USA Best Book Awards!

Middle-aged Endurance Athletics Meets The Hormonally Challenged

Women get older, dammit, and sometimes it sucks, especially for women who pride themselves on athleticism and an adventurous spirit. Hot flashes. Weight gain. Sleepless nights. Yes, it can be hard, but middle age doesn’t have to be a flashing red stop light. It’s perfectly acceptable for women of a certain age, a certain level of hormonal imbalance, and a certain amount of cellulite to don spandex and even enter the rarefied sport of endurance triathlon.

In fact, there’s a huge advantage to aging: much of the potential competition drops out in favor of the couch and a remote control. And the endurance high? The elation of dietary purity and discovering you can have arms like Madonna? The Zen of goal attainment? Better than a good Shiraz buzz. Once you get past the ugly mood swings, chafing on your girly parts, and a “kill your own mother” craving for sleep and a hot Cinnabon, that is.

Pamela Fagan Hutchins has been there and done that, with lessons learned and sense of humor (usually) intact. She completed her first triathlon at 39 and her first Half Ironman at 40. She has her eye on an M-dot tattoo in 2014.

¿¿¿ Can we get real here?

"Honest and helpful."

"Candidly funny."

"Inspiring."

"Great read."

"Encouraging and real."

¿¿¿ See why Hutchins is called an "up and coming powerhouse writer" and "the Erma Bombeck of her generation."

Pamela Fagan Hutchins writes award-winning and bestselling romantic mysteries and hilarious nonfiction, and moonlights as a workplace investigator and employment attorney. She is passionate about great writing, smart authorpreneurship, and her two household hunks, husband Eric and one-eyed Boston terrier Petey. She also leaps medium-tall buildings in a single bound, if she gets a good running start.

    I loved this book! I can relate to so many of the things Pamela talks about, from the hormones to the training injuries. She’s inspiring and real at the same time. And this little lesson from Pamela sticks with me: “We all have more in us than we use, and I think God was teaching me a lesson that day about stick-to-it-ness.”

    I never have been a huge fan of exercise (okay, that's an understatement), but the way Pamela talks about working and her stick-to-itness is really encouraging. A lot of the stories were simply hilarious. It was also helpful to read about someone else struggling with hormones and still looking at the bright side of things. The author also include a lot of helpful tips to deal with hormonal troubles- really great. I think that anyone who likes athletics or just needs encouragement should read this!

    An empowering story of an every-woman lady (who is also a great story teller) who fights her way through battles with hormone problems and feeling terrible to ultimately training for triathlons. She teaches anyone who reads it that anything is possible and that its worth the effort. When you are done you are going to want to get out and do something for yourself.

    Funny stories. It was so heartwarming to read about the joys and struggles of a middle aged woman who wants more than anything to compete in endurance sports with her new husband. Very compelling reading.

    What a great book! How many middle aged woman have been stuck in

    What a great book!
    How many middle aged woman have been stuck in a rut of, I feel terrible, my body hurts, I don't want to get off the couch, I don't want to get out of bed? How many have heard from their doctors, we're sorry but there is just nothing that can be done for you? Well the author does a great job of having us laugh and cry with her on her way to doing a half Ironman triathlon, in the middle of battling with really tough hormonal issues.
    What you come away with, including just the satisfaction of a great read, is that you are not alone and that you need to measure success on your terms, not on anyone elses.

    I have now had the opportunity to read all 5 of Pamela Fagan Hut

    I have now had the opportunity to read all 5 of Pamela Fagan Hutchins recently released books and I am now a HUGE fan.

    This particular book carries with it a strong message of DON'T GIVE UP, to every woman facing the physical/hormonal challenges of aging. It provides real life, realistic suggestions regarding improving health and wellness that are within everyone's reach. But the beauty is that it is not a boring lecture, it is not preachy. It is hilariously funny occasionally sad, often deep and introspective and ALWAYS entertaining. You will be laughing so hard through some of the chapters that it will not be till the end that you realize how much you have learned and how motivated you are to get off the couch, get out of bed, and realize that life does not end because one doctor says so, or because your body appears to be telling you no. YOU CAN solve hormonal problems, you CAN do things that in the past you only dreamed of. A Great Book THANK YOU THANK YOU Ms Hutchins
