The amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin's journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure through sport that will both entertain and inspire. It started out as a fun BBC Breakfast cycling stunt in 2012 and culminated in Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Team GB at the World Triathlon Championship in 2015.

I was ordering another athlete’s book when I came upon this one, and listened to it first! I had no idea Louise Minchin competed and it was a fascinating book. I did my first competitive event since childhood recently, aged nearer 40 than 30, and it was great fun. Thank you, Louise!
