The Book

Dano, writerTri Therapy

Now available in paperback!

Some might think that after 14 hours of triathlon, I’d want to stop and go home – but there is clarity at the edge of consciousness.

After completing my first Ironman Triathlon in 2009, I felt “this is something so monumental that I should write a book about it.” I set out writing down my thoughts, with open eyes and ears – and over the years discovered truths contained within training and racing that translate into the tenets of a healthy, compassionate life.

Working with Team In Training showed me the incredible power of people supporting one another. The things we practice in training are not just preparation for racing, but are some of life’s fundamental truths. Through them we grow, nurture, heal, and move forward. This isn’t just training – it’s a way of life. It’s therapy.

Tri Therapy is partially a story of preparing for a big race – but goes on to consider how training’s concepts are not limited to the races. It challenges ‘non-athletes’ to experience the joy that comes with movement. It challenges athletes to draw on the strength that racing cultivates, and put it to work for a greater good. I write about the experiences that change my perspective, with the goal of catalyzing positive change.

At least half of the proceeds will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

    Dano,
    I just linked to your blog and have to say – my first marathon was truly therapy for me – I have wanted to run a marathon since I was a teenager – but life kept happening and stopped me many times from meeting that goal. I felt I had unfinished business. After getting downsized, losing my sisters, my mom, my marriage, I had to find back that teenager who could accomplish great things (see my yearbook – I did everything!).

    Finishing the marathon brought that dream come true – and reminded me of the person I have always been, inside, just got lost along the way.

    You were an incredible part of my journey – with your enthusiasm and support. I’d love to read your book and edit if you want – after all, I was my high school newspaper editor!!!
