Book Review and Giveaway!

I've been reading "Triathlon for the every woman" by Meredith Atwood, who blogs over at swimbikemom. It's obviously about triathlons, but more specifically about her journey to get to where she is today, which is a half-ironman competitor. This book will make you laugh out loud, feel a sense of pride in sharing her accomplishments, and feed you positivity on how you can complete a triathlon yourself. I can't say much besides that I absolutely loved reading the book- I laughed out loud, felt a sense of accomplishment when she described her race, and fell in love with the sport all over again.

Meredith breaks up her book into a few different sections, training, how to pack for a race, recaps of her own races, and even a whole section on nutrition. I would read it all over again if I could, it was totally useful in almost every aspect. I can't read it again though, because it's time to pass it on!

  1. I probably wouldn't do a triathalon, but I would like to do a half marathon. I just am not a very good swimmer--- and don't really think I could ever finish the swim portion.

  2. I'm on the CU tri team and will be doing my first tri in april at lake havasu. You can email me
