Summary
On the eve of his fortieth birthday, Rich Roll was nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping. Something had to change. Plunging into a healthy, plant-based diet and a lifestyle that prioritized daily training, Rich morphed -- in mere months -- from out-of-shape midlifer to endurance machine. Finding Ultra recounts his remarkable journey to the starting line of the elite Ultraman World Championship, in which the world's fittest humans compete in a 320-mile ordeal of swimming, biking, and running. Following that test, Rich conquered an even greater one: the Epic5 Challenge: five Ironman-distance triathlons, all completed in under a week. More than an inside look at jaw-dropping athletic feats or a practical training manual, this is a powerful testament to human resiliency, a beautifully written portrait of willpower overcoming physical and social obstacles, and a challenge for us to rethink what we're capable of
