Tricurious, by Laura Fountain and Katie King (Summersdale, 2015)

Tricurous tells the story of Laura, a self-certified couch potato and friend Katie, a life-long runner, fair-weather cyclist, and born-again swimmer. The more experienced Katie helped Laura through the ups and downs of training for a triathlon.

Their triathlon journey gave them the opportunity to break boundaries while forging a life-long friendship. Tricurious tells Laura’s and Katie’s story, with energy and humour. Filled with anecdotes and advice about the trials and tribulations of preparing for a triathlon, this inspiring book will leave you hungry to experience the joy (and pain) of swim, bike, run.

Tricurious is out now.
