Unthinkable by Scott Rigsby
Unthinkable

marathongirl, December 1, 2012

The author of this book, Scott Rigsby, is a warrior of the body, mind and spirit. There is no other way I could describe someone whose legs were tore from him in his youth but persevered through tragedy, addiction and self doubt to become an Ironman. Scott is an inspiration and a true ambassador to the power of a BIG dream and faith.

Pressure Perfect: Two Hour Taste in Twenty Minutes Using Your Pressure Cooker by Lorna J Sass
Pressure Perfect: Two Hour Taste in Twenty Minutes Using Your Pressure Cooker

marathongirl, December 1, 2012

As always, I intend to start cooking more. But, when I get off work I'm STARVING so, more often then I like to admit, I'll grab something on the way home or just eat some cereal in front of the television. But now, I hope to try some of these recipes. They sound delicious and FAST! Time to bring out the pressure cooker!

The Grace to Race: The Wisdom and Inspiration of the 80-Year-Old World Champion Triathlete Known as the Iron Nun by Sister Madonna Buder
The Grace to Race: The Wisdom and Inspiration of the 80-Year-Old World Champion Triathlete Known as the Iron Nun

Another inspiring read from my "Sports/Running" book stash! Sister Madonna Buder started running at the age of 52 and by her 80th year had completed 340 Triathlons (45 were Ironman competitions which is a 2.5 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, 26.2 run all performed in less then 17 consecutive hours). Sister Madonna is living proof that it's never too late to become an athlete and an inspiration. She is the embodiment of a line from "The Little Prince"..."Once you have discovered a gift it is your responsibility to use it'". Amen to that!
