From Couch Potatoe to Endurance Athlete
This book is for those who have ever thought they were too old or too unfit to compete in a triathlon. It is 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. She was working 60-plus hours a week, running a small business. Her
focus was always on others. Meanwhile, her weight kept increasing, and she was unhappy with the way her life was
going. To turn things around, she joined a gym for the first time.
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. 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.
