As Good as Gold, By Kathryn Bertine.
In As Good as Gold, a thirty-one-year-old everywoman sets out to conquer a mind- and body-boggling challenge: making an Olympic squad--any Olympic squad. Both an accomplished athlete and talented writer, Kathryn Bertine abandons her lunch-shift waitressing career and pro-triathlon race schedule for a rollicking, humbling journey toward Olympic greatness. She delves into the mysteries of team handball, learns the quickest way to reload an air pistol, and speeds around a steep concrete track at 40 miles per hour on a bike with no brakes. Throughout her quest she surmounts hundreds of obstacles, ranging from jet lag, jellyfish attacks, goats, rashes, potholes, to breakups with boyfriends. Filled with heartbreak and laughter, As Good as Gold is a story of dedication, pursuing impossible goals, and most important, learning to love the pursuit.
