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.

What a lovely book, written and read by Louise herself really giving it a genuine feel, from the highs and lows of the sport she loves to the struggles we all face training around family life and her ever faithful training partner her dog waffle.

Louise' story takes you through her account of the journey from the beginning of her triathlon endeavours to the present day, detailing her adventures into open water swimming and into the World Championships for her age group.
