A Life Without Limits; A Book Without Excitement

A Life wihtout Limits Chrissie Wellington


Hachette Book Group, Inc., pp. 274. 2013

A Life Without Limits by Chrissie Wellington was simply a book without much excitement.  Although intriguing and various points of the book, this journey through Chrissie Wellington's life takes most of the book to get going.  I was initially excited to get to the stories of this 4 time Ironman World Champion's  Kona accounts, but found myself dragging myself slowly through the first half of the book, bored by the stories of continuous career changes and travel logs.

Despite the importance of such a character's development, the first half of the book left me feeling underwhelmed and curious as to when triathlon was going to make it's appearance.

Although the end of the book finally reaches it's Ironman glory ending and the question of what is next for Chrissie, the first 100 pages can easily be glossed over or skipped altogether.
