Description

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.

Hilary Topper was a 48-year-old working mother who once upon a time had practically failed high school gym class. She was working 60-plus hours a week, running a small business. Her focus was on others—her children, her aging parents, and her staff. In the meantime, her weight kept increasing, and she was unhappy with the way her life was going. She needed a change. To turn things around, she joined a gym for the first time in her life.

This book will take the reader on Hilary’s decade-long journey as she trains for and runs her first 5K, swims the aqua-blue waters of the Caribbean, cycles a hilly course in Milwaukee, learns how to run–walk her way through the New York City Marathon, and competes in her first triathlon in Sanibel, Florida. The reader will be right with Hilary as she narrates each experience—even a 5-mile swim in the murky waters of Long Island.

Hilary’s story will move, motivate, and inspire readers. They will laugh and cry as they follow her on her journey. Even if a reader doesn’t start out as an endurance athlete, after reading this book, they will walk away feeling that no matter what happens, they can cross the finish line, too.
