5 time Ironman Chcmpion Craig Alexander is touring the country pitching his new book, Craig Alexander- As The Crow Flies. If you aren’t able to make it to one of his Q&A sessions, but want to get inside the mind of one of the most successful triathletes in the recent history of the sport, then As The Crow Flies is a great gift for yourself or someone special on your list.
Come to find out “Crowie” is human, and struggles with a lot of the same things that age groupers around the world struggle with, trying to balance life and sport.
The five-time world champion reveals his approach, his training, and the relationships that delivered the record-breaking race performance he says was a decade in the making. In his own words and through striking photographs from acclaimed sports photographer Paul K. Robbins, Crowie shows what it takes to race at the elite level—and how he balances the work of triathlon with his first priority, his wife Neri and their young kids Lucy and Austin.
Alexander reflects on influential moments of his early career and his entire 2011 and early 2012 season, bringing triathletes inside his head during key workouts, training blocks, and pivotal moments in big races. Crowie struggles through injury, illness, and changing sponsorships, revealing the delicate balance between elite performance and disaster.
At about $30.00 it’s a look into the life of Alexander, there’s training tips, ideas and plenty more to keep you reading, entertained and learning.
