Top Customer Reviews
My only criticism is that at some points the author's description of her own time and race accomplishments turned me off. While I was impressed by the fact she repeatedly said that she has never dnf'ed (did not finish), I think those statments were unnecessary and may infact serve as deterent for those who may have had to make the difficult decision to drop from a race. However I understand how those of a more competitive nature may find that inspiring, I am not really a competitve person so I would have preferred some parts to be more universal vs. personal. But overall I highly, highly recommend it.
