    Enjoyed listening to the book on audible. Provided many tips and lots of great stories that are extremely valuable for the beginner and reassuring tips for the seasoned triathlete. Infused with lots of humor and real life thoughts that indeed make the sport so awesome

    Story
    "Just the inspiration I needed to get off the couch"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I wish there was a way I could get my friends to sit down and listen for a few minutes, to get them hooked as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a REAL person with issues I can relate to. Not unattainable, just lots of hard work.


    Which character – as performed by Angela Ellis – was your favorite?

    Swim/bike/run mom.


    Any additional comments?

    I love the dry humor and wit that kept me interested while I was learning valuable tips on becoming a triathlete should I accept the challenge. I have just enough exposure to cycling to really appreciate her references to the queen for example. So motivational to listen to someone ordinary become extraordinary!

    "Inspirational"

    This is the second time I've listened to this book - noteworthy bc I almost never listen to books more than once. I love it and highly recommend this book to anyone - triathletes, those wishing to become triathletes, and those who are simply ready for a change. Thank you Swim Bike Mom for sharing your challenges and triumphs!!

    Story
    "Funny, motivating, realistic."
    What did you love best about Triathlon for the Every Woman?

    - Funny
    - Practical
    - Realistic perspective


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author is really the only character, other than her trainer and husband she talks about.


    What three words best describe Angela Ellis’s voice?

    She isn't a bad reader. I just don't think she has the same sense of humor as the author that let her emote the subject the way the author would have.


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

    No


    Any additional comments?

    No

    Story
    "Move yout butt"
    What made the experience of listening to Triathlon for the Every Woman the most enjoyable?

    The narrator and the author are so up beat and not in the slightest bit pretentious.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Triathlon for the Every Woman?

    I Googled 'prairie dogging' .....Eww!


    What about Angela Ellis’s performance did you like?

    Just the right amount of emotion (some sports narrator's go over the top) and emphasis


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

    Looking for something to motivate me to get fit. This one had the best preview.


    Any additional comments?

    Although i have no intention of having children or getting married. This book still works for me.

    I used to be young and fit like the author, now i am old and wobbly and want to do something exciting with my life.

    I have listened to this book three times in one sitting (i was preparing for my motivation to kick in) i walk with this playing, cook with this playing and even exercise with it.

    I shall never look at a stationary bicycle the same way again

    Story
    "a triathlon guide for beginners"

    This book is not for women only, but for anyone who knows nothing about triathlons and believes that they cannot do it or that partecipating in a thriatlon is for other people...
    Telling her personal story with humour the author made me understand that I can do it too...that I can get there too,
    She gives every detail you need to know about triathlons to actually get set for one, from gear to training ideas to any possible information and trick.
    good read.
