Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Trully inspiring!"
    If you could sum up A Life Without Limits in three words, what would they be?

    Spirit, determination, inspiration


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


    What does Polly Lee and Chrissie Wellington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


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

    Constantly. I heard this book while running and was catche several times laughing, getting angry, or getting really excited and anxious.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the story. It is my deffinition of motivating wih sports!

    Story
    "Interesting life makes for a good listen"
    Would you listen to A Life Without Limits again? Why?

    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.

    Story
    "Great story! I did not want the book to end."
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Life Without Limits to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I really enjoyed the story being read.


    What other book might you compare A Life Without Limits to and why?

    None


    What does Polly Lee and Chrissie Wellington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Polly Lee did a great job reading the book. It was great to hear it read in the proper accent of Chrissie.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
