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. Elizabeth (Betsy) Noxon is a freelance health and fitness writer whose work has appeared in numerous national magazines, including AARP The Magazine, Better Homes & Gardens, Experience Life, Health, Heart-Healthy Living, Parents, Runner’s World, and United Airline’s Hemispheres. She has also reported on health conferences for Glamour magazine, written online for MSN.com Health & Fitness, Livestrong.com, for The Chicago Tribune, The L.A. Times, North Shore magazine and for corporate clients. An athlete all her life, Betsy is always on the go, be it running, swimming, cycling, skiing or golfing. A cycling trip down California’s Highway One inspired her to take up triathlons.

I loved this book! I am a keen triathlete that started out on my own tri journey 3 years ago. The book is full of great coaching tips, practical advice on gear and nutrition and on on what to expect and how to prepare for races. It also has an awesome 12 week program to follow. I highly recommend it for anyone thinking about getting into this super fun and super rewarding sport or for triathlete's who need a more structured approach to their training.

I have secretly wanted to do a triatholon, but my fears overtake me. The thought seems overwhelming. Tri the Journey eases those fears and gives me encouragement. I am beginning to believe that this is possible for me. I want to feel the same confidence and excitement as the triathletes in this book. I would reccomend this book to anyone who is Tri curious.

Reading this book helped me put together all the elements I needed to run a triathlon. It dispelled all the rumors I'd heard about triathlons being this super competitive sport that only professional athletes could pursue. With this book in hand you will have what amounts to a personal trainer guiding you to become the best you can be. It is well organized, informative and inspirational. I highly recommend this for anyone who doubts they have the strength and courage to be a triathlete. You don't have to run an ironman to get fit and feel better about yourself - take the first step and buy this book!!

As an experienced runner, I've often thought of transitioning to triathlons, but have always been a bit intimidated. This book has given me the motivation to try it. The clear writing and inspirational stories of women just like me who have taken the triathlon challenge has me counting down the days to my first race. The journal section and insider tips make me feel like I have real training partner in this book. If you've ever even had a passing thought about doing a triathlon, I highly recommend reading Tri the Journey.

This book is filled with everything you need to get started! From practical information to motivational stories, Tri the Journey makes the "journey" a little less daunting. Currently, I'm a non-athlete and reading the stories of women who have started this adventure after having children and/or never being involved in athletics gives me the courage I need to give triathlons a try. I'm so happy to see that there are shorter races you can get involved in to start. Thank you so much for organizing this book!

This book is truly about the journey. It explores the pathway to becoming more than you thought through the sport of triathlon. It is possible to go from couch-potato to athlete, all you have to do is tri.
