    Story

    An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

    In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

    What made the experience of listening to Finding Ultra the most enjoyable?

    While his semi-nasal, dispassionate voice drives others that happened to hear some of it crazy, I really liked the fact that this was read by Rich Roll himself.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd already committed to my program of getting fit and healthy prior to listening to to this. Listened to some books like It's Not About The Bike (Lance), I'm Here To Win (Macca), read Iron War and been working out consistently and changing my diet. That being said, I took a lot from Rich's book and applied it to my life.I could relate to Rich's journey as I'm a similar age and was even more unfit. I never dealt with the addiction issues (closest would be food for me) that Rich had to and remember feeling like that section was pretty long but I related to or hope to relate to the rest of the book. The story was quite enjoyable and kept me listening and interested. I loved the further insight into ultra endurance events. And my family has adopted many dietary changes that Rich mentioned. We haven't gone vegan (and probably won't) but are still feeling much better from eating more in line with his philosophy. I liked that these details, as the other technical information, were shared in context of his story rather than a non-fictional guide.I do admit that I regret not having the appendixes and access to some of the reference data that is mentioned.All in all, transformational book for me.

    Story
    (103)

    During the Depression the ebullient American entrepreneur Charles Flanagan assembles 2,000 runners from all corners of the earth, to run from Los Angeles to New York for prize-money of $150,000. Flanagan’s Trans-America runners face 3,000 miles, across the Mojave desert and the frozen Rockies, running a daily average of 50 miles for three months.

    Story
    Where does Flanagan’s Run rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Well, the performance was hands down the very best with nothing close. The narrator, Rubert Degas, is amazing. I will even be going on a search for books narrated by him because the accents he did for the different characters were so amazing!


    What did you like best about this story?

    Again, I might have to say the narration but I also loved the stories and the characters. I really felt like I knew them and related to them. This was a great book to pass the time away while running and biking. Just super enjoyable and amusing. I'd always look forward to my next run, spin bike session, commute to hear how the next part of the story played out.


    What does Rupert Degas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His brilliant use of accents made everything come so much more to life than if I'd just read it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Definitely had me laughing at times. Really enjoyed it.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Really appreciated the real life insight into what goes on during an Ironman event. Macca made you feel like you were there with some of the descriptions he goes into.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, definitely.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd only listened to It's All About The Bike (on Lance Armstron and which I loved) and this audiobook set me down the path to having now consumed pretty much everything I could find on Audible on endurance sports and triathlon. Great listen while running or biking. One of the things that set me down the path to completing my first triathlon with designs on many more. Thanks, Macca!
