In 2007, Chrissie Wellington shocked the triathlon world by winning the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii. As a newcomer and a complete unknown to the press, Chrissie's win shook up the sport. A Life without Limits is the story of her rise to the top, a journey that has taken her around the world, from a childhood in England, to the mountains of Nepal, to the oceans of New Zealand, to the trails of Argentina, and finally, across the finish line.
Wellington's first-hand, inspiring story includes all the incredible challenges she has faced - from anorexia, to near-drowning, to training with a controversial coach. But to Wellington, the drama of the sport also presents an opportunity to improve people's lives.
A Life without Limits reveals the heart behind Wellington's success, along with the diet, training, and motivational techniques that keep her going through one of the world's most grueling events.

Spirit, determination, inspiration
The straight-forwardness of the author. How every detail of her story has an outcome and a follow-up. I loved the story of an "ordinary girl's" approach to life that took her to a real succes story. Her willing to do her very best is what really inspires to live to your very best.
It was a true joy reviving every experience, every trip, every race and getting a taste of it all.
Pally did a great job on this one, you can really feel every smile, every feeling, every word with a special meaning and enfasis. It feels as i it were Chrissie the one telling the story in every moment of her life.
As for Chrissie, she really gives it a special starting and finiching touch that connects the reader into the story.
Constantly. I heard this book while running and was catche several times laughing, getting angry, or getting really excited and anxious.
Loved the story. It is my deffinition of motivating wih sports!
Listen to this with my husband on the 16 hr drive to his Ironman Mont Tremblant.
The book kept both of our interest (I am a non-triathlete) for most of the book.
Chrissie has led an interesting life and has written a very honest book.
There are no big ironman revelations, so don't look to this book for your training.
Yes. I really enjoyed the story being read.
Polly Lee did a great job reading the book. It was great to hear it read in the proper accent of Chrissie.
I highly recommend this book to triathletes, runners and anyone interested in a great story. Chrissie's story is about much more than triathlons. She reveals what an amazing life adventure she has had so far.
This is a great story about how to live life completely. Chrissie is a champion on and off the track and an inspiration to runners and non-runners alike. Very enjoyable read.
Yes- I've been listening during a morning run, an afternoon drive, and an evening gardening session. Good stuff! Insprirational and fun
Travel, adventure, athleticism, and endurance.
had a hard time "putting it down" but also wanted to savor. A good combo
Wanted to listen on my Swimp3 player, but it was not compatible.
