You might find this hard to believe since my blog is not the standard of English, grammar and otherwise riveting reading but.... I have friends who actually can write and write well! Have you heard of Swim Bike Mom? If you haven't, you must hop over and check her out. SBM is a one woman triathlon cheer leading squad. She is encouraging, she is working on becoming an Iron(wo)man at CDA this year and above all she is REAL. She has up days and down days just like the rest of us and puts it ALL out there on the interwebs for the world to see.
Meredith's book, Triathlon for the Every Woman: You Can be a Triathlete. Yes. You., just hit Amazon this week. It probably was written with beginners in mind as a way to get them into the sport but I think even someone who has some triathlons to their credit will also enjoy it. I mean, Bree Wee wrote the preface for goodness sake and she loved it!
I was lucky (?) enough to go over to Meredith's house one day last week and help her box up all of the pre-orders for shipping. (I think there were roughly 1 billion...ha) It was my first glimpse at the book and I have to say I was impressed. This book is legit! It contains 400ish pages of everything you wanted to know about triathlon but didn't know who to ask.
Meredith has pulled together contributors to cover all areas from nutrition, mental focus and transitions to swimming, biking and running and interspersed them among her personal stories of how she got off the couch and started her triathlon journey. If you love her blog, you will love this book. Lots of humor, personal stories and useful information.
I am lucky enough to have a copy of the book to give away! Just leave me a comment with either your most embarrassing triathlon moment or your proudest moment. If you aren't into triathlons (yet...), tell me what you are waiting for! I will draw a winner at random on Wednesday, January 2nd. Ready, go.....
If you just can't wait to win a copy, go to Amazon HERE and get yourself a copy. You won't be disappointed!
