Lacks Depth Redundant

This book mirrors much of the content in her earlier work. I don't see the value add, get her first one unabridged instead.

Full of Fundamental Cliches

I used the free Audible trial for this and I am so glad I paid $0. Grade school fundamental explanations and full of cliches and basic information like "the difference between a lycra and silicone swim cap is..." "Keep it Simple" If you want to acclimate to warmer races, train in cities with a warmer climate." Inspirational gems like "Reach for the Stars" She never really gets off the newbie focus. I blew through 12 hours in a 5-hour car ride and hit Fast Forward more than anything else. Oh, I did learn one thing, "Que for the Loo early on when you arrive to avoid long lines." In your best British accent, that's your keeper. Skip this one.

Disappointing for me, this is best suited

The book was really disappointing, it's unfortunate since I really liked Wellingtons first book. This book is absolutely for someone who is just starting triathlons. I have only done a few, but the information in the book is very basic.

Great First Tri Book

Where does To the Finish Line rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Her first book is amazing, this book really is for the brand new tri reader.

What did you like best about this story?

She tickles me with her silly sense of humor.

What three words best describe Polly Lee’s performance?

I don't have three words, she is good but voice is to soft to listen to on the bike.

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

No

Any additional comments?

I think this book is 5 stars for the new tri person. Her first book is way better for everyone else. Performance was goo, just too delicate for me to concentrate on while biking.
