A seventh-generation Californian, Scott Tinley led the quintessential Golden State dream. As he grew from beach rat to lifeguard to a recreational administration major, it seemed only natural to him that he would try to parlay the athletic skills gleaned from this idyllic lifestyle into a profession as one of the best triathletes in the world. For twenty years, his skill, tenacity, and devil-may-care attitude guided him along that path. But when age, and no amount of training would prop up his performances, his athletic gold rush went bust. Cracks in his psyche began to show, as if beneath it all--like much of California itself--his athletic life had been built on a fault and the triathlon had been a stage set. Always introspective and inquiring, Tinley threw himself headlong into athlete retirement and the larger issues of life transition and change. His new journey, driven by his quest for personal growth and healing, was filled with pain, false starts, and heartrending intimacies. It led him to hundreds of other retired professional athletes who would openly discuss their own triumphs and tragedies. With much discipline, Tinley completed one of the most thorough athlete research projects ever attempted, and befriended such superstars as Bill Walton, Eric Heiden, Greg LeMond, Jerry Sherk, Steve Scott, and Rick Sutcliffe. Along the way he uncovered secrets about himself and the process of change, turmoil, and final acceptance, all shared openly and eloquently in Racing the Sunset. This book will do for athletes of every level what Passages did for an entire generation.

A talented writer could craft a short paragraph about his first novel in such a way as to demand further attention. I'm not that good. However, Crystal Beach Sunset is set in an interesting place and time and the interplay among the four principal characters will have universal appeal. What's not to like about a self-proclaimed devout atheist who does charitable work in several area churches? The day-to-day narrative begins when Jim and Rebecca Thornton, corporate banker and English teacher, opt for a two-week vacation on the shores of Lake Erie across from Buffalo. They expect some quiet time away from the heat of Manhattan and not the four-week, life-changing adventure that ensues. But then, they did not imagine that they would spend so much time with their landlord, a middle-aged, self employed, non-tax paying eccentric and his live-in twenty-eight year old girlfriend, a part time stripper and part time exercise rider at the local racetrack. The story takes place in Fort Erie, Ontario and Buffalo, NewYork, its crossborder neighbor, during the late summer of 1989. It ends on Labor Day that year, the last day of operation of Crystal Beach, a popular amusement park on the lake. The four principal characters occupy a lakefront property one bay over, the fifty year old Jack Mahoney and Linda McCollum in the main house and the young couple from New York City in the rental cottage. A cancellation provides an offer of a free extension of their stay if they "assist with some projects." The characters connect by gender and prim is influenced by the bawdier side of life and proper by the unconventional. The area backdrop provides a second sharp contrast, current and historical, between the Canadian and American sides of the Niagara River.

Wilson N. Trueheart Jr. celebrates his love of running and road racing over a more than thirty-year span in Baltimore. With this collection of poems, essays, and short reflections, he shares his training plan, injuries, other setbacks—as well as his plan for continuing to run. Trueheart trains at Lake Montebello, the Herring Run trail, and on the streets of Baltimore. The lake offers a one and two fifths of a mile loop and includes a great view of wildlife. When he runs downtown, Trueheart dodges traffic and pedestrians, but he gets a dose of adrenaline. The trail offers peace and quiet: it is like an oasis in the middle of the city. The author also shares how he has overcome falls, injuries, and even going the wrong way. He’s even had to battle prostate cancer, undergoing surgery before getting back to a regular schedule. Through it all, Trueheart’s mission has been to live up to his name by being true to himself—and to win. Join the author as he celebrates his love of running with an incredible journey into the sunset.
