Book launch Jan. 23 at the Lockport Public Library

The official launch for “I Thought You’d Be Faster: The Quest To Become An Athlete” will be from 6-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 23 at the Lockport Public Library.

A sportswriter turned triathlete and distance runner, Amy Moritz became an adult-onset athlete in her 30s. While in love with the sport and all it brought her, she was nagged by a lingering question: Was she really an athlete? Through this memoir, Amy describes her own journey to defining herself as an athlete and explores why it can be so challenging for women, of all abilities, to do the same.

Come out. Chat with Amy. Grab a copy or get yours signed. All in attendance also get a nifty journal to track your own journey, dreams, and goals for the new year. (Thank you UR Sportswear!)
