About the book
If you had told Helen two years ago that she would be getting up at 6 a.m. on Sundays to swim in a freezing reservoir and spending her Saturday nights unshowered and covered in mud in a pub, she would have spat out her champagne. But when everyone around you starts settling down and starting families, what else is a glamorous party girl to do but to launch herself into the world of endurance sport?
For someone who didn’t even own a pair of flat shoes (and definitely no waterproofs – that’s what cabs are for!), Helen would soon find she had a lot to learn.
Join Helen on her hilarious and soul-searching journey as she swaps a life of cocktail bars and dating for the challenges and exhilaration of outdoor sport, signing up for everything she possibly can: triathlons, trail runs, obstacles races, long-distance cycles and ocean swims… and sets herself the seemingly impossible goal of qualifying as a Team GB triathlete.
