    Inhaltsangabe

    Susan and Carlos were unlikely friends. She was a young, overweight college professor and a bit of a trainwreck - juggling a divorce, a pack-a-day habit, and hiding empty boxes of wine under her bed. He was her boss, an Ironman triathlete, with life figured out. She was a whiner, he was a hard-ass. He had his shit together, she most assuredly did not.

    Trash-talking workouts, breakdowns, a devastating diagnosis - this heartwarming story of training buddies reveals a deep and abiding friendship that traversed life, sport, and everything in between. Their journey reveals the inspiring power of sports and friendship to change lives forever.

    Amusing and poignant, Life's Too Short to Go So F--king Slow is about running and triathlon, growth and heartbreak, and an epic friendship that went the distance.

    Great Story

    I liked this story from the beginning till the end. And I liked the speaker, too. I could not stop listening to this audio book and was a bit sad when it was finished. As I have done one Ironman myself I could totally feel with the author. I would definitely buy this audio book again.

    Okay if you like very, very emotional stories

    First half is quite good and entertaining especially if you’ve gone through an Ironman preparation yourself. Once the story takes a twist (I won’t reveal too much) this changes. I understand the author had a very strong relationship to the other person in the book but with all due respect, this was just too much of praising of a person that means a lot to the author. It starts to be overly emotional and tear-provoking. Much more a speech about the decency of a person (which I don’t doubt) than a story for outsiders interested in triathlons. Not my thing.
