From Couch Potato to Endurance Athlete
For those who have ever thought they were too old or too unfit to compete in a triathlon, From Couch Potato to Endurance Athlete will prove that it is never too late to compete!
This is a story about overcoming life’s obstacles — from injury and business trouble to grief and loss and everything in between. The book will take you on Hilary’s decade-long journey as she trains for and run her first 5K, swims the aqua-blue waters of the Caribbean, cycles a hilly course in Milwaukee, learns how to run-walk through the New York City Marathon, and compete in her first triathlon in Sanibel, Florida.The book will inspire runners, triathletes, and endurance athletes. It will also move anyone who wants to walk away feeling that no matter what happens, they can cross the finish line, too.
