Publisher Comments:

"Eric Harr has an astounding ability to motivate practically anyone and crafts a compelling case for the fact that fitness challenges are not just feasible but fun. Eric makes the daunting feat of training for a physically demanding event completely doable because he is there every step of the way--cheering you on, spurring you to greater heights, making you want to do this. His book is a brilliant tool that should truly inspire members of our sedentary society to put themselves, and their health, first."--Alexa Joy Sherman, senior editor for Shape magazine

"Eric Harr's book will be of great value to the newbie triathlete. He will help you from your first step to when you cross the finish line."--Jim Taylor, Ph.D., sports psychologist and ironman triathlete

The Transforming Power of Triathlon

Training for a triathlon will get you in the best shape of your life, not to mention give you a new and exciting fitness pursuit. More than that, it will change your life in ways you never imagined.

In 1994, when Eric Harr decided to train for his first triathlon in the U.S. Virgin Islands, the extent of his exercise was walking to the local mango stand for lunch. That one simple step set in motin dozens of other positive steps. Eric began eating better, had more energy, and grew more sensitized to the joys of everyday life.

You hold in your hands the key to unlocking a healthy, passion-filled life. All the motivation and practical advice you need to train for and finish a triathlon is within these pages.

Four separate training programs to accommodate every fitness level

A complete list of all the gear you need, with money-saving tips on how to get it for less

A 40-minute stretch-and-strenghten workout you can do at home--plus an abbreviated 10-minute workout for those days when you're pressed for time

A complete menu plan with delicious, healthy meal choices to fuel your active body

Strategies to stay motivated and injury-proof your body

Discounts on triathlon gear, race entry fees, travel expenses and lodging

A minute-by-minute guide to your race day

Author and professional triathlete Eric Harr began his career as an out-of-shape legal clerk living in the U.S. Virgin Islands. After training by commuting on his mountain bike, he competed in his first athletic event, the St. Croix Triathlon. He waddled across the finish, ahead of a few noted professionals.

Almost one year after that event, Eric was ranked sixth in the world and was named Rookie of the Year. Since then, he has won 30 amateur and pro events in 23 countries and has represented the United States in two World Championship events. He is about to undertake the Hawaii Ironman as the culmination of The Ultimate Challenge, in which he's competed in 10 of the world's most strenuous and celebrated athletic events to raise money for international charities including Special Olympics.

Eric is also a TV and radio show host, a columnist for Shape magazine, a nationally syndicated columnist for the Los Angeles Times and the author of The Portable Personal Trainer. He lives in Marin County, California, with his wife, Alexandra Stretton, and their dog Owen.

"Everyone dreams of being an athlete, but most of us don't think that we have either the time or the ability to do it. In Triathlon Training in Four Hours a Week, Eric Harr will give you the inspiration and the right information to accomplish that dream. It will fit into your life, you'll never feel better, and you'll never look back."--Susan M. Kleiner, R.D., Ph.D., author of Power Eating
