Recently I received a copy of Ironmom by Mette Harrison to read and review. It was nice to receive a running-related book written by a mother runner herself (times 5!)!
Mette was a self-described “former couch potato,” before she started her journey to become a triathlete, and eventually an Ironwoman. She signed up for her first Ironman triathlon one week after suffering the loss of a child through stillbirth. She embraced the rigors of training as a way of dealing with the grief that consumed her.
While the book starts off with her reasons for choosing to compete in the triathlon and her own personal motivations; it continues with a lot of helpful information on starting out in your training, training plans, parenting, and even how the triathlon saved her marriage.
If you are looking for a running-related book that is a great mix of heartfelt writing and useful training information, check out Ironmom!
