The forthcoming book from Lauren McVey-Harsch, How to Date a Triathlete, takes a humorous look at the side effects of living with someone training for and racing in long-distance events, Ironmans in particular.  From ‘racations’ to lathering up your partner’s body with sunscreen to scheduling sex around their workout schedule, the book gives you what you need to cohabitate with the athlete.

It includes a forward by Virginia Tinley, wife of two-time Ironman World Champion Scott Tinley and Executive Director of the Challenged Athletes Foundation, and a triathlon glossary that will help make any triathlon novice sound like a pro.

How to Date a Triathlete is available now at, and check out the How to Date an Endurance Athlete Facebook Page for a few bits and tips from the book. It’s available for pre-order now for $19.99 plus shipping.
