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. It started out as a fun BBC Breakfast cycling stunt in 2012 and culminated in Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Team GB at the World Triathlon Championship in 2015. This is the story of how a newly discovered sport became a passion and then an obsession. Dare to Tri: An Adventure in Triathlon 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 TeamGB 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. Along the way Louise rediscovers the forgotten joys of sport and receives surprising rewards in the form of being an unexpected inspiration to others. There is also the added bonus of newfound respect from her teenage daughters and the realisation of the important role mothers play in inspiring girls to continue to enjoy sport. 1.

My husband has AIDS. I miraculously don't.How am I going to survive? ...I try to keep from screaming, 'Dennis, you can't do this to me now. I left my family, my friends, my job, pulled the kids away from their school and friends-you can't quit on us. You can't.' Through clenched teeth, he controls his response, 'Scott, I'm tired. I'm dying.' Dennis is walking away and does not sound tired; he sounds angry. 'Have you not heard anything I've told you for the last twenty-three years? I love you; you are my life. Don't you dare think I'm not dying here, too. You may be the one who gets buried, but I'm the one who has to figure out how to keep living. I'm dying, Dennis; I'm dying with you.' We stand there, energy spent, emotionally depleted, tears falling. I take him in my arms, and we hold on to each other as if we draw life's breath from the other-because we do. He sits on the sofa, and I go find the Dallas phone book so I can call Restland, the place where we will bury his body.When Joan Scott Curtis was 43 years old, she found out her husband was dying of AIDS. He had been infected for thirteen years. She tested negative. None of this was possible. It was the mid 1990s. All the prejudices about AIDS are not supposed to exist anymore, but they do. Just Keep Breathing is the remarkable story about finding courage in small victories, on taking solace in helping others, and knowing that even though the major battle will be lost, the ability to live on with grace and dignity is what defines the war.'An extraordinary journey told in a spiritually insightful way that will grip your heart and your emotions and cause you to take a step back and be grateful-that in some way, you...will know yourself a little better. Patti Machin Garrett, City Commissioner, Decatur, Georgia

SHORTLISTED FOR THE TELEGRAPH SPORTS HEALTH & FITNESS BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD 2019 DARE TO TRI is 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. 'I didn't even know what a triathlon was before 2012. When I took up the sport three years ago I didn't imagine for a second then, that, one day, I would be able to represent my country internationally.' Louise Minchin What started out as a fun television cycling stunt culminated in BBC Breakfast's Louise Minchin wearing the colours of Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships in her age group. This is the story of how a newly discovered sport became a passion - and then an obsession. Dare to Tri is Louise's candid memoir of her incredible journey, recounting her rediscovery of competitive sport after nearly 30 years and her first tentative steps as a triathlete. In a story encompassing equal measures of determination and self-doubt, Louise has to overcome personal nerves, a brutal training regime, the odd bike crash and the occasional drama. Her adventure as she strives to represent Great Britain in triathlon is an inspiration for sporting late-starters everywhere.

It's New Year's Eve, and Gemma and Spencer Bailey are throwing a house party. There's music, dancing, champagne and all their best friends under one roof. It's going to be a night to remember. Also at the party is Caitlin, who has returned to the village to pack up her much-missed mum's house and to figure out what to do with her life; and Saffron, a PR executive who's keeping a secret which no amount of spin can change. The three women bond over Gemma's dodgy cocktails and fortune cookies, and vow to make this year their best one yet. But as the following months unfold, Gemma, Saffron and Caitlin find themselves tested to their limits by shocking new developments. Family, love, work, home - all the things they've taken for granted - are thrown into disarray. Under pressure, they are each forced to rethink their lives and start over. But dare they take a chance on something new? Praise for The Year of Taking Chances 'Well-written, full of humour and filled with a reminder about what it means to be kind' Closer 'Warm, witty and wise - perfect for lazy afternoons on the sofa' Daily Mail 'Sparkling tale of love and friendship' Heat
