    A fun--and funny--read

    At times laugh-out-loud funny. At times tear-streaming sad. This is a gem of a book. Jane Booth takes us on a wonderful journey--not just of Kitchen Confidential revelations about the triathlete's world --but of her life as a foreigner in the US...her life as a woman in her forties... her life as a human with anxieties. This is a fun--and inspirational-- read.

    very motivational and inspirational

    I found Transformed by Triathlon to be a completely worthwhile and entertaining read for me. I plan on doing my first sprint triathlon next year and this book was pretty useful as a tool. There were plenty of tips for first timers and beginners that I made mental notes of.

    Transformed by Triathlon was written by a woman in her 40's who decided on a whim to take up the endurance sport of triathlon. She transitioned from someone who loathed running and was terrified of getting on a bike (at least she was a decent swimmer!) to someone who completed both sprint and olympic distance triathlons and could call herself an athelete. This was quite an inspirational story that had me rooting for her throughout. It also had me telling myself 'if she can break into endurance sports at the age of 43 then my 31 year old body can do it too!'

    I already had my mind set on completing a triathlon before I read this. This book has given me extra motivation to get out and do a run even though I may not be in the mood to run. It has given me the extra kick in the butt to get in the car and drive the 10 miles to the lake and swim laps even if I would rather stay in bed and sleep in. I highly recommend, for those interested in triathlons, this honest and frequently humorous story of one woman's ups and downs on the road to becoming an endurance athlete.
