Chrissie Wellington is my new hero.
I just finished reading her book A Life Without Limits, a very inspiring memoir of her journey to becoming a four-time Ironman World Champion.
I’ve watched this 64-minute video of the 2011 Ironman Championship in Kona a few months ago, and today after reading the book, I watched it again. Watching it the second time was more interesting because I knew about Chrissie’s bike crash, her pain, her tears, and what went though her mind before, during, and after the race. This is my conclusion: Chrissie Wellington is one amazing athlete.
