Slow, Fat, Triathelete

I would like to thank the person who had mentioned on one of these boards a few weeks ago that they had read this book. I bought it and had a hard time putting it down. I am actually tossing around in my head the thought of training for a sprint tri. So I need to give credit, because I never would have known that my slow, fat self could do such a thing with out having read this book. I can't find the thread to thank you, so this will have to do.

    It wasn't me, but I just got home from a sprint triathlon and I was happy to see someone interested. I love triathlons! Start training; you can do it!
  • I read it a few months back after stumbling on her website. Inspirational & just too funny. Unfortunately she seems to have disappeared ~ nothing else has been published, and her website stopped being updated a year or so ago.:-(:-(

    I emailed her at the email address in the book & the website but never got a response. Very sad. I would love to read more from her. I feel people like her are truly inspirational...especially to slow, fat, injured, non-triathletes like me. I am cycling and swimming but grouchy knees are preventing the running, and at this moment even walking is an issue!!

    If you find anything else like hers, let me know...and I will do the same!!
    Ciao
