When I started triathlon, one of the appeals was that I could all the training alone without being dependent upon someone else to complete my workouts (aside from lifeguards who sometimes tend to not show up at the pool, but this was a problem that did not occur to me when I began). I figured I would meet new people, but I didn’t realize how much of a tribe — a real family of friends — I would create. With gratitude for all those who have entered my life through endurance sports:[wpvideo 8Ts7WbFR]

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. You can buy the book (paperback or Kindle versions) on Amazon.
I'm Amy Moritz -- a sportswriter who fell into being an endurance athlete. Originally a way to get and stay healthy, I've found running (and cycling and swimming) the way in which I make sense of the world. It's helped me discover people and places both in my native 716 (a.k.a. Western New York) and around the world. Follow along with my journey and share your own. Because we all have the ability to create our own story.
