Inside the Minds of a Triathlete
Vekt i gram:
Life is better when you are a triathlete. That is what author Jef Mallett believes, and millions of triathletes around the world agree. "Trizophrenia" celebrates the seemingly obsessive-compulsive rituals of the triathlete. Eat, swim, eat, work, eat, run, eat, go to bed early. Get up at dawn and do it all over again. The schedule of a triathlete demands focus and coordination, but with three sports, a job, and a family, it can be a lot to juggle. With humour, insight, and perhaps a bit of pride, Mallett spins out the story that every triathlete will appreciate. Beginning with the alluring excitement (and terror) of the new triathlete, Mallett delves into the intoxicating subculture of the sport that is three sports. Sweeping text and amusing illustrations bring to life the countless conundrums a triathlete embraces--from the glory of training to the lasting rewards of racing. Ultimately, it's the triathlete's quest--the continuous potential for improvement--that drives the sport of triathlon, delights its participants, and inspires the uninitiated to pin on a race number.Mallett's light-hearted declaration of love for his sport draws from a wide range of personal experiences and sources--literature, history, and music--that will convince anyone that life is more worth living when you're a triathlete.
