I spend 90+ minutes a day in my car, Audible makes it enjoyable regardless of what's happening in traffic. My taste varies from endurance fitness to economics and from to combat stories and romance novels.
The first time I heard Pam Reed's name was in 2003. The story of her being the first place winner of the Badwater 135 barely made news in even the running magazines, while I think it should have made national news. It served as an inspiration for my own endurance cycling and led me into the crazy world of 24 hour mountain bike racing.
The book fills in many of the gaps that anything less that a full time stalker would know about her racing, training and personal life. It's honest, sometimes brutally so, in her telling to personal challenges, racing life, and her reluctance as a sports personality. Her accomplishments are amazing, her path unusual and her story is fascinating. Definitely a must read for any endurance athlete who loves a good inspirational story.
