Wife in the Fast Lane: A Novel by Karen Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Laugh out loud moments as the protagonist, Christy,
experiences single to married life, CEO and two Olympic medals to stay-at-home-mom, best friend to nemesis, as well as many other roles.
Interesting the internal doubts and dialogue shared by such an external success and media-covered woman and lifestyle.
I thought her adjustment period to stay-at-home mom and wife the most interesting as she developed a similar loss of identity and weight gain that most going through such dramatic life changes go through (myself included).
When Christy snaps out of her funk, she starts running 6 miles daily again (the sport for which she earned her two medals in). Her looking and feeling better about herself I was reminded that taking care of myself makes me a happier, healthier, more confident and relaxed "me".
