9781569244678: Slow Fat Triathlete: Live Your Athletic Dreams in the Body You Have Now

The idea of participating in a triathlon may sound out of the realm of possibility for those without a typical jock-athlete's honed build, intense focus, and competitive mindset. But now Slow Fat Triathlete opens the door to those who may not come quite so equipped. After years of obesity, poor health, and self-doubt, Jayne Williams took part in her first triathlon in 2002 to prove something to herself and became hooked on the rush of the race. Today she is a self-proclaimed "slow fat triathlete," unafraid to overcome humiliation, laugh at her foibles, have fun, and accomplish impressive goals. Slow Fat Triathlete is a book for those who may be overweight, out of shape, undisciplined, or otherwise unprepared to enter a triathlon but are curious to try. Through personal stories, practical ideas and suggestions, and uproarious anecdotes, this book inspires, encourages, and proves that with a little training, almost everybody can have a great time and reap huge rewards from pursuing their tri dreams—and that everyone can become a participant and an athlete.

About the Author:

JAYNE WILLIAMS grew up in the halcyon suburbs of Northern California, began her impractical education in Russian literature at Harvard, and got an equally impractical M.A. in Slavic Literature from U.C. Berkeley. She has organized whitewater rafting expeditions in Siberia and around the world and enjoyed years of frantic poverty as a freelance writer, interpreter, and editor. She has dabbled in public service and the Internet boom/bust, and lives in Mountain View, California with her husband Tim and their psycho-cat surrogate child.

Review:

Slow Fat Triathlete will get your heart-rate revved up.... Ideal multisport reading material for all shapes, sizes, and ages. -- Bill Katovsky, founder of Tri-Athlete magazine and two-time Hawaii Ironman finisher

An inspiring, witty, and wonderfully written story that athletes of all levels can relate to.... A chuckle on every page! -- Gina Kehr, professional triathlete

Jayne Williams proves that anyone who really wants to can do a triathlon. -- Steven Jonas, MD, author of Triathloning for Ordinary Mortals and The Essential Triathlete

What an enjoyable book! Well-written, informative, and inspiring. Go, Jayne, go! -- Georgena Terry, founder, Terry Precision Bicycles for Women
