Inspirational stories!

would have liked a few more stories by professionals with their trials and tribulations. but overall, it's a great book to listen to while running. But the narration was just average.

Inspiring and re-useable!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I already have. A bunch of short success stories are always a great way to ease into an early morning run (when your bed is way more comfy!).

What about Christina Traister and Dan John ’s performance did you like?

Both voice overs were engaging and seemed natural.

Enjoyable

I downloaded this as a bit of motivation for me in the last taper week before my first marathon. I listed to it in the car each morning on the way to work, and for the most part I really enjoyed it. Some of the stories are better and more rounded than others, but each is inspiring in its own way. It's probably not for everyone, but I enjoyed it.
