A competition against yourself
21 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

The story of a woman who decides to enter the Ironman, probably the hardest triathlon in the world.

I liked it. It is not about being number one, in a competition with more than 1,000 contestants, it's about you facing yourself, about not stopping. Falling, and standing up to continue, to finish what you began. In the story, Nora is going nowhere, her son arrives home for the summer, and she begins the training with him, who helps and encourages her. Since I saw it, I've wanted to test myself ... but not that hard.
