‘Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing’ – Benjamin Franklin.
She did something worth writing and an inspiration not only for athletes but for those too who likes to dream but could not gather the courage to face the odds and with this book she writes something which is worth a read.
Coming to the book, let’s start with her. Anuradha “Anu” Vaidyanathan is the founder of PatNMarks; an intellectual property consulting firm, founded in 2001. She also has a PhD in record 26 months but her love for sport lands her in becoming first Asian female to complete the Ultraman Canada Triathlon in 2009, placing 6th amongst women.
The book is written candidly, an honest mix of humor and curiosity. She did not try hard to give herself a larger than life image. She is an ordinary Indian girl born in Iyer family and race against the odds. Yes, she did fail at first, she did afraid of the hardships of the race, but her courage and determination are bigger than that herculean task. She did see setbacks but never pull her steps back and run on the road less traveled. She dreams; sudor and achieves. She always has the spirit of ‘go-getter’.
You always need to have something competitive enough ahead in your life; a goal worth achieving; a dream worth swimming, biking and running for, that pushes you hard to come out of the bed every morning.
This is my first no nonsense honest and heartily memoir. A tale of a girl of inquiring mind and conviction. She writes of her endurance and love for sport and life and her many firsts before landing into Ultraman in 2009. A heart-warming and heart-rending tale of love for sport.
