A Reluctant Athlete's Journey Into the Heart of America's Newest Obsession is available online at Barnes & Noble, Amazon, VeloPress.com, and IndieBound as well as several select independent bookstores and triathlon/running stores across the country. It was a #1 'Hot New Release' on Amazon and has been getting nice reviews and praise so far.
In the pages of Women Who Tri, Alicia J. DiFabio uses a blend of journalism and memoir to explore many triathlon-related topics. She delves into the history of the sport, its unique subculture, and the psychology of the female triathlete. She also shares many inspirational stories of "ordinary" women doing extraordinary things through triathlon as documented by her own journey from exercise naysayer to triathlon finisher.
Essentially, Ms. DiFabio wrote this book to explore the heart, soul, and mind of the female triathlete. As such, there is truly something for everyone -- the tri-curious, the newbie, the tri-obsessed... and non-triathletes who just want to understand the appeal of this sport.
But, really, the book is about strong women empowering other women and how triathlon can be a vehicle of transformation in our lives.
Through the generostiy of the authror, Alicia DiFabio, The Shyann Kindness Project will be raffling off two signed copies at the Awards Ceremony at the conclusion of the event on September 9th.
