101 Ideas and Insights for Triathletes and Duathletes can be considered a sequel to Triathloning for Ordinary Mortals (WW Norton, 1986, 2nd ed., 2006), which was the very first book designed for beginners and recreational triathletes. In 101 Ideas, I offer comprehensive guidance for both beginners and recreational multi-sport athletes based on my now extensive experience in both triathlon and duathlon: 2011 marked my 29th season in both sports with 220-plus races combined. The nine chapters address mobilizing motivation, getting started, the race options, training, equipment, the day at the races (but not the night at the opera), nutrition, injury prevention and management, and staying with it.
Skip Gilbert, USA Triathlon Chief Executive Officer, 2005-2010, had this to say about the book: “I first met Steve Jonas in 2005 and he is without question one of the most knowledgeable experts in the industry. This book should be a must read for anyone looking to gain significant insight into how to better embrace triathlon, duathlon, and the multisport lifestyle.” Hunter Kemper, the only three-time Team USA triathlon Olympian, said: "Steve Jonas shows us clearly just how wide-open multi-sport racing is for anybody who wants to try it." And finally, my good friend Dr. Don Ardell, national and world age-group champion in both triathlon and duathlon, and internationally known as the “Dean of Wellness,” said: “If you have a question about how to prepare for a triathlon or duathlon that Dr. Jonas, has not addressed, you are probably worrying too much.”
