Life's Too Short to Go So F*cking Slow: Lessons from an Epic Friendship That Went the Distance (Paperback)
Susan and Carlos were unlikely friends. She was a young, overweight college professor and a bit of a trainwreck--juggling a divorce, a pack-a-day habit, and hiding empty boxes of wine under her bed. He was her boss, an Ironman triathlete, with life figured out. She was a whiner, he was a hard-ass. He had his shit together, she most assuredly did not.
Trash-talking workouts, breakdowns, a devastating diagnosis--this heartwarming story of training buddies reveals a deep and abiding friendship that traversed life, sport, and everything in between. Their journey reveals the inspiring power of sports and friendship to change lives forever.
Amusing and poignant, Life's Too Short To Go So F*cking Slow is about running and triathlon, growth and heartbreak, and an epic friendship that went the distance.
