Alistair Brownlee on Can't Swim Can't Ride Can't Run

Very nice of him to say so

I was really made up this morning when I recieved a message and this great quote / review from none other than Alistair Brownlee, the ITU Word Triathlon Champion.

In December I contacted him ( and several others ) and asked him if he might like to read my little story. This was something my publisher suggested I do – contact prominent people in the sport. I thought I’d never hear anything from anyone but the response was amazing and very positive.

Alistair was very enthused about the story and so I sent him a book.

I really appreciate him taking the time to read it and send me a few comments, as I realise that he must be extremely busy – but that again is another reason why I Love the sport of Triathlon, even the world champions are down to earth normal people – not prima donnas.

Yeah ok, it might sell a few books BUT I’m just stoked that he read it πŸ™‚

So thanks Alistair – you’ve made this amateur triathlete Dead Chuffed!

    Great review. And nice to see that the greats can appreciate the ordinary people way down the pecking order.
