Finding Triathlon

Speed is a funny thing; its relative nature affecting individuals in different ways.
One man's 30-minute 10k is another woman's 9.6-second 100-yard dash. I don't
like to drive a car fast, but cheek-bending acceleration? Now that's a rush.

Training for and completing a triathlon is one of the most grueling life experiences anyone can have, requiring a degree of personal commitment, individual strength and iron will that few people possess. A true test of your ability to find, and then surpass your physical, mental and emotional limits, the only real analogue to triathlon…is the challenge of life itself. In Finding Triathlon, professional athlete Scott Tinley explores the world inside and outside endurance sports, seeking answers to age-old questions. Part memoir, part cultural exploration, Tinley uses the language of sports to speak universal truths. Told through anecdotes, both personal and shared, with a critical, inquisitive, and often humorous interpretation of a life lived through the medium of sports, Tinley reflects on the sport of triathlon, honest competition, and the drive to improve ourselves as a whole, looking to understand how and why we live our lives. Finding Triathlon is not a self-help book, and it’s not a fitness guide. Nor is it just about triathlons and triathletes. It’s about a lifestyle, a perspective, a way of looking at the world and its challenges, as you strive to better yourself and better understand yourself. Whether you’re training for the next big race or you’ve never run a mile in your life, Finding Triathlon speaks to the champion in each of us, demonstrating how making the decision to push ourselves to succeed in our dreams can affect our life, our world, and our future. From the Trade Paperback edition.

“The Amazing Race" meets Around the World in 80 Days as a woman desperate to save her family bookstore falls for her competition. Born and raised in New York City, Ramona Keene dreams of attending photography school and traveling to Paris, but her reality never quite catches up with her imagination. Instead, she works at her uncles' quaint bookstore, where the tea is plentiful and all the adventures are between the covers of secondhand books. But when the new landlord arrives with his Evil Nephew in tow, Romy's quiet life comes crashing down. He plans to triple the rent, something her uncles can't afford. In order to earn the money to help save the bookstore, Romy applies for a job at ExLibris Expeditions, a company that re-creates literary journeys. Romy snags the oddest internship ever: retrace Phileas Fogg's journey from Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days and plan a suitable, contemporary adventure for a client. The task is close to impossible; sticking to the original route means no commercial aircraft permitted, and she’s got a lot less than eighty days to work with. Shaking off her fear of leaving home, Romy takes on the challenge, only to discover she’s got competition. Worse, Dominic Madison turns out to be the – unfortunately hot – nephew of her family’s worst enemy. Can Romy win the race and circle the globe in time to save the bookstore? And what happens when she starts to fall for the very person who may just be the death of her dreams?

Aura seeing is easy and fun. Look at a person's head to determine which side is darkest. If the left side is darker, that means he or she is struggling with the past. The right side indicates what the person is facing in present time. The lighter the color, the easier it will be for that person can make good decisions. Ruth Berger is unusual among psychics in that she usually does her love investigations long distance. In her medical intuition, she looks at the photo of a client to scan the body intuitively for any blockages, past blocks, and scars of former loved ones. She's a true seer. Everyone has the ability to find a soul mate. Some do naturally, but those that don't need to read How Women Use Their Inner Power to find good relationships in business and romance. This guide offers many simple, intuitive training techniques that anyone can learn to develop better relationships and live happily ever after. The second chapter explains how men use their inner power to increase their earnings and understand women better.
