At forty-one I was overweight and unfit. As I turned 50 I was thirty pounds lighter, having spent my fifth decade training for, and racing multiple Ironmans, marathons, and other crazy adventures. This account of that fitness journey through my forties includes broken bones, severe chafing, regular cursing, rubber and lycra, an element of masochism … and cake.
This is very different to what I would normally read but wanted to give it a try. I really enjoyed reading about Tim’s journey through it all. I found it very inspiring and the story is an incredible one how he goes from couch potato to running Ironmans. I have seen Ironmans on the tv and they look tough so I want to say well done to Tim for doing something awe inspiring and hopefully from writing this book he can help and inspire more people to get out there and do something worthwhile. There is a mixture of funny parts and also parts that really made me wince. But I am really glad I read this book, it is a short read too. But it has inspired me.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
