Description

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*cking Slow is about running and triathlon, growth and heartbreak, and an epic friendship that went the distance.

    Really good short book. Listening to the audiobook while training for my first 70.3 and loved it. Gives the perspective of a weekend warrior rather than a professional.

    First half was great! I wanted to keep listening and couldn't wait to turn it back on. But the second half got super boring. It was kind of an odd relationship. It almost sounded like it was going to be romantic but then all of a sudden they mentioned that he had kids and was married. They were best friends yet she kept referring to him as sir. Maybe it just wasn't for me or wasn't where I expected the book to go.

    If you are an athlete this book should be right up your ally. It is a story about a woman who is a professor in a college who befriends her department chair. Their friends embarks them in many triathlons and many miles on their bikes. This story is so warm hearted as you see what a real mentor is and how a mentor cares about the person they are mentoring. The friendship is so inspiring. I absolutely enjoyed listening to this book. As it was an unexpected read that I decided to listen to on Scribd. I would absolutely recommend this to any athlete or anyone who is in need of some extra inspiration. It was really, really good read!

    This was the most heartfelt and inspiring thing I’ve read in a long time. I’ve never left a review on a book before. I’ve never cried this many times reading a book before (and that includes Harry Potter and the deathly hallows). If I could go back and experience every emotion I felt while reading this book again, I would do it. What an incredible journey to read.

    This was a surprise, a good surprise. If you ride, read this. If you have ever thought about riding, read this. If you want to learn about challenges and character, you must definitely read this. Read or listen to just do it.

    This book surprised me, but in a good way. I thought it was going to just be a self-help, you can go out it book. But, the message is so much deeper...

    Fantastic! I laughed, cried and related to Susan so well that I wonder how this book even came to me. It’s as if it was a sign. Thank you for your inspiration and sharing Carlos’s story.
