Finished It
Finished It: A Teams Journey to Winning It All | Cassie Reilly-Boccia
19 posts
Finished It unlocks the Alabama Softball story in a transparent and powerful way. Her stories are woven together creating the sensation you are living and learning what makes Alabama Softball special. This book shares how Coach Patrick Murphy, Coach Aly Habetz and staff have cornered the market on RELEVANT leadership. Unwavering values that withstand the test of time in an ever changing society. Her book pulls back the curtain on one of NCAA Softballs greatest collegiate programs. Sue Enquist Former UCLA Softball Coach-27 yrs. 11-Time National Champion 5-Time Hall of Fame Been around this amazing game for awhile, and few have ever taken us inside the true emotion, process, preparation and understanding of what it takes to win on the biggest stage. Cassie does this so uniquely, you will find yourself applying to your own life the creative ways this special group was able to succeed both as an underdog in THE championship moment and as a difference maker in life. Jessica Mendoza ESPN Analyst and Reporter, Olympic Silver and Gold Medalist Finished It shows us there is more to winning a national championship than meets the eye the day that trophy is hoisted. Discovering the details of raw emotion and effort that goes into winning a national championship is nothing short of motivational. You can see the Alabama Softball program has developed a formula for not only winning games, but the effort it takes to develop a healthy, inspiring lockerroom from day one of a season. Any athlete, any person would be able to relate to the dedication, creativity, passion and belief in each other this team had from the get-go of their magical season. Amanda Scarborough 2-Time All-American ESPN College Softball Analyst Although little can prepare you for adversity, this book will show you that when you have twenty hearts beating as one, nothing can stop you.

Apparently I have more books than even I thought lmfao!! I may have to take it easy at the book sale tomorrow & Wednesday 😈😂🤪🤯📚💖

Guys!!!!! Guess what I did today??? After getting off work half a day early (early start to my holiday? Hell yeah!) I FINISHED my shopping!! With 2 whole shopping days to spare! Huge deal for me lol. How is this bookish, you ask? Well now that I am ahead of schedule I can relax and spend my whole break (11 days!!!) trying to see how many books I can squeeze in before 2018!!! #winningxmas #holidayreading #challengeaccepted 🤗🤗👏👏

Only managed a piecemeal couple of hours this morning around chores and shipping and other boring non-book activities. But I did manage to complete my original stack with a little audio Dickens and PG Wodehouse in between. It's no real surprise that Ali Smith and Terry Pratchett were my favourites 😊 #readathon #deweysreadathon.
4 whole books, 1 partial, 1,319 pages in total. What fun!

Finished the 24 hour #readathon. Finished with 11 hours 22 minutes, a bit disappointed as I was aiming for 12 hours. I finished The Tunnel by Scott Mariani and Splinter the Silence by Val McDermid. Also read some of The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson and The Hangman's Song by James Oswald. Next time I am going to break 12hours.!
Well done everyone! 👏 We made it. Now 😴

Cinfhen Awesome job🎉🎉🎉that's a lot of reading time 🙌🏻 5y

CrowCAH That‘s quite the accomplishment; congrats! 5y
Andrew65 @CrowCAH Thanks, just frustrated I didn't get to 12 hours. Next time! 5y
CrowCAH @Andrew65 I haven‘t done a 24 in 48, so not sure how easy or difficult it would be to get to 12 or 24! 5y
Andrew65 @CrowCAH Tougher to get to 24 in 48 than 12 in 24 I'd imagine. Not done a 48 hour challenge YET. Problem was this one was at the end of a long half-term at school and I was very tired last weekend. 5y
CrowCAH @Andrew65 understandable. 5y

suvata How was Made You Up? It's on my TBR. 5y
monkeygirlsmama Nice job! I'm mad because I got so tired I went to bed in the wee hours of the morning. I knew even setting an alarm I'd be likely not to get up to finish, and that's exactly what happened. 😢I'm sitting at just under 22hours and no time to meet the deadline. Doh. Oh well, had lots of fun reading. Congrats and hope you had fun too. 5y
VanChocStrawberry @suvata I liked it! I have a hard time with unreliable narrators, but I LIKED this one, even if I couldn't trust her. After you read it, let me know. I really want to talk to someone about it! 5y
VanChocStrawberry @monkeygirlsmama :( I'm sorry you're sad, but that's still a successful readathon! 5y
monkeygirlsmama @VanChocStrawberry It was; you're right. 😌 5y

Who kept resetting her stopwatch on accident? 🙋🏽 so I did all #24in48 but I don't get the pleasure of seeing 24:00:00 😢

BookishMarginalia I hear you! I was sad I reset mine at 22.5 hours! 5y

Redheadrambles Awesome 👏 . What were the standouts ? 5y
Marchpane @Redheadrambles SO MANY of these were incredible. I think Hunger and The Gene are must-reads. Lincoln in the Bardo was just so original and a different reading experience. And the Fifth Season for being a cracking fantasy story. (edited) 5y
Redheadrambles @Marchpane it's sooo great that of that list I have already read two and loved them - Lincoln and Fifth Season and have The Gene in my mind for future non-fiction. This must be why we are friends here ;) 5y

Marchpane @Redheadrambles yep, we are simpatico with our books, haha 😂 I always look out for your reviews for that reason- you've convinced me finally that I should read Americanah which I have been resisting 😊 5y
Redheadrambles @Marchpane yeah I resisted it too for ages even though I really liked her first two novels. It is not perfect and I think she has better novels in her but it is still brilliant. 5y
