Surfacing: From the Depths of Self-Doubt to Winning Big and Living Fearlessly
Surfacing is the inspiring story of Siri Lindley, one of the world’s best triathlon coaches and a world champion. Before Siri came to dominate the sport of triathlon, she was controlled by deep-seated insecurity that sabotaged her races and forced her to hide her sexuality.
Sports set the shy and painfully self-aware Siri free. When she fell short of making the national lacrosse team, she felt directionless once again until a friend invited her to a triathlon―and ignited the fire for Siri’s life work.
Siri failed early and often. Brutal swim starts, equipment failures at key races, crushing workouts―these were nothing compared to the performance anxiety that reared up from the depths of Siri’s early years. It took eccentric coach Brett Sutton to tear up her script of self-doubt and transform Siri into a world champion.
Surfacing is a breathtakingly honest book. Siri proves it's never too late to rewrite your own story and change the thoughts, habits, and behaviors that hold you back. Surfacing will inspire you as it shows how to stop being your own worst enemy and start uncovering your own potential.
