About the Author
Elizabeth (Libby) Hurley is the founder and president of Together We Tri (TWT) a Chicago-area triathlon training program. Libby is a three-time Ironman finisher and veteran of more than 50 races. Fueled by her background as a competitive age group swimmer with Olympic aspirations, Libby longed to compete in triathlons. Lack of information on the emerging sport led Libby to devise a training program for herself—a program she would later use to inspire her entrepreneurial quest. Tri the Journey is the culmination of Libby’s desire to help people everywhere experience the joy of triathlons. The book and website are the realization of Libby’s dream to encourage thousands more to experience a fitness program that will transform lives. Since 2000, Together We Tri and has trained and motivated more than 6,000 athletes to reach their triathlon goals.
