Most of you in the endurance community have heard of the passing away of local San Diego resident, and superstar endurance athlete Barbara Warren. Slowtwitch did a great write up on her story here.
The reason for this post in particular is because I am reading a book about her and her twin sister, Angelika. Although I am only a mere 30 pages into the book, I am pretty gripped by the story so far. If you don't mind a little deep thought, inspiration, the handling of adversity, a touch of spirituality and a little push out of your comfort zone, this is definitely a good book, and is a very easy read.
I received this book from my buddy Damian, who was actually given this book by Angelika, Barbara's twin sister. Some months ago, they both were leaving costco one day where she saw Damian's tri bike in the back of his Jeep, started talking to him, and then gave him a copy of the book (ie. their life story).
It's a small world people...
