Surfacing is the inspiring story of Siri Lindley, one of the world's best triathlon coaches and a world champion. But 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.When her stunningly beautiful mother caught the attention of an NFL superstar, Siri's idyllic childhood was ripped apart. A whirlwind of glitzy dinner parties and world travel pulled her mother away, and Siri grew up feeling forgotten. As her intense loneliness gave way to anger, she lashed out against her New England life of privilege. Sports set Siri free. Shy and painfully self-aware, Siri came to life when she played field hockey, lacrosse, and ice hockey, and became a starter in all three sports at Brown University. When she fell short of making the national lacrosse team, she felt directionless once again until a friend invited her to watch her race a triathlon-and ignited the fire for Siri's life work. Siri failed early and often before she found her formula for success. Brutal swim starts, bike 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 Australian coach Brett Sutton to tear up her script of self-doubt and transform Siri Lindley into a world champion. Once she had proved herself to the world, Siri turned inward to stare down the demons that kept her from finding love as a gay woman. Today, Siri guides her own triathletes to win world championships at Kona and around the world. Surfacing is a breathtakingly honest book that shares Siri Lindley's daring journey. 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.
Sport is something we do, an experience that is hard to describe because it captures our whole selves. Sport draws us in and brings us back, day after day, season after season. We love to playand yes, to win. Sport can train us, educate us, change us for better or for worse, but that is really not the point. First and foremost, sport is part of a truly abundant human life that Jesus Christ offers for those who love to play. God's world includes the myth-like space where sport resides, where we celebrate our humanness, our desire to be excellent, and our need to belong. Sport at its best points us toward a future of play and delight. And God is there with us, in every leap, backflip, tackle, spike, and slap shot.We need to play sport the way we live life: depending on our Creator in every moment and in every action. That means learning how to love God and neighbor better, how to turn away from thoughts and actions that dishonor God and harm ourselves and others, how both to be wary of our own desires and to delight in the good things that God has made. God does delight in this worldincluding sport. As we experience sport, we participate in that delight by authentically competing, giving ourselves wholeheartedly to the game, testing our abilities, and tasting the pleasure of organized play.
Ellis Amdur's writing on martial arts has been groundbreaking. In Dueling with O-sensei, he challenged practitioners that the moral dimension of martial arts is expressed in acts of integrity, not spiritual platitudes and the deification of fantasized warrior-sages. In Old School, he applied both academic rigor and keen observation towards some of the classical martial arts of Japan, leavening his writing with vivid descriptions of many of the actual practitioners of these wonderful traditions. His first edition of Hidden in Plain Sight was a discussion of esoteric training methods once common, but now all but lost within Japanese martial arts. These methodologies encompassed mental imagery, breath-work, and a variety of physical techniques, offering the potential to develop skills and power sometimes viewed as nearly superhuman. Usually believed to be the provenance of Chinese martial arts, Amdur asserted that elements of such training still remain within a few martial traditions: literally, 'hidden in plain sight.'Two-thirds larger, this second edition is so much more. Amdur digs deep into the past, showing the complexity of human strength, its adaptation to varying lifestyles, and the nature of physical culture pursued for martial ends. Amdur goes into detail concerning varieties of esoteric power training within martial arts, culminating in a specific methodology known as 'six connections' or 'internal strength.' With this discussion as a baseline, he then discusses the transfer of esoteric power training from China to various Japanese jAAjutsu systems as well as Japanese swordsman-ship emanating from the Kurama traditions. Finally, he delves into the innovative martial tradition of DaitAAryAA and its most important offshoot, aikidAA showing how the mercurial, complicated figures of Takeda Sokaku and Morihei Ueshiba were less the embodiment of something new, than a re-imagining of their past

The story of the growth of sports in West Virginia is also a story of the tribulations, hopes, values and triumphs of a proud people.

When the Florida Agricultural College in Lake City became the University of Florida and moved south to Gainesville in 1906, it had a very fledgling football team, although worthy opponents were difficult to find. Little by little, as the school increased in size and reputation, its football team attracted higher-performing athletes and sterner opponents until it was willing to play any team in the country. In 1966, the team had its first Heisman Trophy winner, but it was not until 30 years later that UF won its first national championship. Since then UF has chalked up two more Heisman Trophy winners and two more national championships. Historic Photos of University of Florida Football chronicles the rise of one of the premier football programs in the country through hundreds of black-and-white photographs, each of them captioned and with introductions. The book includes photos of the university and the surrounding community to which the Fightin Gators have become so much an integral part.
Tausende Orang-Utans haben in den letzten Jahrzehnten zumindest ihre Heimat, den Urwald oder sogar ihr Leben verloren. Nur ein Bruchteil der "e;Waldmenschen"e; kann gerettet werden. Signe Preuschoft betreut Orang-Utan-Waisen in einer Waldschule auf Borneo und bereitet sie auf ihr Leben in Freiheit vor. Hier lernen die traumatisierten Menschenaffenkinder nach Tod oder Verlust der Mutter alles, was sie fur ihr Leben im Wald brauchen: Klettern, Nester bauen, Nahrung suchen, Beziehungen aufbauen. Acht Jahre verbringt ein Orang-Utan-Kind in standigem Kontakt zu seiner Mutter, ebenso viel Zeit benotigt es in Menschenobhut, bevor es selbststandig wird. Die Primaten-Forscherin zeigt uns, was wir von ihren wilden Waisen ber uns selbst lernen knnen. Sie schildert ihre Arbeit in Indonesien und erzhlt, was sie selbst antreibt, trotz aller Rckschlge und Schwierigkeiten immer weiterzumachen. Denn im Namen ihrer Kinder kmpft sie gegen die Zeit: Tglich werden zur Palmlgewinnung riesige Flchen Wald gerodet, einziger Lebensraum der Orang-Utans. Doch verschwindet der Wald, verschwinden auch seine Kinder.
