Review by: ShellyB on May 05, 2012 :
An empowering story of an every-woman lady (who is also a great story teller) who fights her way through battles with hormone problems and feeling terrible to ultimately training for triathlons. She teaches anyone who reads it that anything is possible and that its worth the effort. When you are done you are going to want to get out and do something for yourself.

Funny stories. It was so heartwarming to read about the joys and struggles of a middle aged woman who wants more than anything to compete in endurance sports with her new husband. Very compelling reading.

An intriguing story that explores issues many older athletes confront. It is an honest look at what it is really like to be an aging athlete. This could help all people, male and female, understand some basic concepts inherent in your changing hormonal physiology.

What a great book!
How many middle aged woman have been stuck in a rut of, I feel terrible, my body hurts, I don't want to get off the couch, I don't want to get out of bed? How many have heard from their doctors, we're sorry but there is just nothing that can be done for you? Well the author does a great job of having us laugh and cry with her on her way to doing a half Ironman triathlon, in the middle of battling with really tough hormonal issues.
What you come away with, including just the satisfaction of a great read, is that you are not alone and that you need to measure success on your terms, not on anyone elses.

I never have been a huge fan of exercise (okay, that's an understatement), but the way Pamela talks about working and her stick-to-itness is really encouraging. A lot of the stories were simply hilarious. It was also helpful to read about someone else struggling with hormones and still looking at the bright side of things. The author also include a lot of helpful tips to deal with hormonal troubles- really great. I think that anyone who likes athletics or just needs encouragement should read this!

Hilariously funny! Pamela takes you on her journey as a athlete, wife and woman during perimenopause while training for half marathons and triathlons. She is candid in her struggles even if that means a laugh at her expense. I laughed out loud while reading this book.

She also shares some hysterically funny stories about her husband Eric. One in particular set in a restaurant full of cowboys is so funny, my husband thought I lost my mind because I was crying laughing.

A great buy for a gift, for yourself or for any woman over 30 in your life. Pamela gives her yeast free diet tips, Eric gives bike maintenance tips along with the funny stories. I've already put the tips into use. Hurry, buy the book, you won't be sorry.
