Do you like reading magazines?
Other than the guilty pleasure of People or Good Housekeeping while waiting to be seen by my dentist or doctor, I don’t consider myself a magazine reader. They’re “nice to have” as my husband will say, but I’d much rather read a book with its hefty weight and words. There are, however, a few I’ve come to love and look forward to reading. USA Triathlon Magazine, is definitely one of them.
In the Winter 2015 issue, Barry Siff, shared his opinion on three books I’m very excited to read. One in particular sparked my curiosity, “The Art of Competition” by Mark Allen, photographed by Nick Borelli.
Aside from the fact that I absolutely love picture books (e.g. a cookbook without pictures is a run without sweat), what compelled me to immediately NEED this book is Siff’s description, “Allen’s true edge over his equally competent and capable competition over the years was between his ears and within his soul. Duh… Mark Allen IS a terrific athlete and “Zen Master”. I. Love. It!
