Nicola’s Books in A2 Hosts Book Signing August 20

ICan you imagine signing up for a triathlon without knowing how to swim, bike or run?

Hilary Topper, three-time author, business owner, and now endurance athlete, recently wrote her third book, From Couch Potato to Endurance Athlete – A Portrait of a Non-Athletic Triathlete ($18.95), published by Meyer & Meyer Sports Publishers.

 The book is launching in August and Topper will be appearing at Nicola’s Books (now named Schuler Books) in Ann Arbor on Saturday, August 20 at 2pm. There, she will read an excerpt from the book, answer questions and will be signing copies of the book.

The event is FREE and open to all. More information on the event can be found at

 All attendees will receive a special bookmark from Sumarpo, a 100 percent Eco-Friendly wetsuit company.

From Couch Potato to Endurance Athlete is about Topper’s 10-year journey from being a work-a-holic, mother, and business owner, to learning how to run her first 5K, running the NYC Marathon and competing in major Olympic distance triathlons and endurance events.

The book intertwines her personal and business life into the endurance journey.

“It’s a book for anyone who feels like they can’t, or they won’t, because if you really want to, you can and you will,” Topper says.

The book is compelling, riveting, and will keep you on the edge of your seat. Each chapter begins with a motivational quote from Topper’s community and finishes with a lesson learned.
