In October 2020, a friend convinced Laura to sign up for a Half Ironman-even though the sum of her knowledge of the event consisted of only knowing it was a swim, a bike, and a run. When she started, Laura had only seven months to go from 0 to 70.3 with a huge learning curve. This book follows Laura's journey from complete triathlon novice to completing her first Half Ironman and beyond, with all the mental and physical bumps and bruises along the way-and some truly hilarious moments.
Laura wrote this book for anyone who thinks they can't achieve their loftiest goals. It is not for the elite athlete who has it all figured out. It is for the person who is unsure; who needs to believe in themselves and might finish with minutes to spare.
