Summary
The amazing story of TV presenter Louise Minchin's journey from the BBC Breakfast sofa to representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. This is a warmly written and wonderfully honest adventure-through-sport that will both entertain and inspire. 'Dare to Tri' charts Louise Minchin's incredible journey as she rediscovers competitive sport after 30 years and takes her first tentative steps as a triathlete. As her performances improve, there's a realisation that representing Team GB in her age group is a possibility and the book tells of her plucky attempt to achieve this almost-unthinkable goal. It is an adventure not without its challenges as Louise has to overcome personal nerves, a brutal training regime, the odd bike crash and the occasional drama such as swimming with jellyfish and getting stuck in a loo before a race
