What the Fire Ignited
My one-time meeting with Shay was arranged by a mutual friend. I was just getting into distance running and had just run my first half-marathon. In our meeting, Shay did not speak much about his quest for half and full triathlons not his story of survival. He was interested in hearing about my training and offering some gentle advice on what might make it better.
When I heard Shay was about to release What the Fire Ignited, I quickly added my name to the pre-sale list.
Last week my copy arrived as advertised and once I started reading I couldn’t put it down. In one day, I finished the book and was inspired and challenged by Shay’s story and his passion for striving to be the best at whatever you are committed to.
It only takes a quick glance at Shay to know that he experienced something traumatic. In his book, you realize that event and his recovery shaped his outlook on life. That same attitude, you learn is what fuels his athletic training that has ranged from boxing to competing in the Iron Man World Championship.
If you are an endurance athlete, runner, cyclist, swimmer or triathlete, you need to read Shay’s book. He digs into his training schedule and what it takes to be the best you can be.
If you are looking for a great story of survival you need to read Shay’s book. You will learn how a childhood accident sent a little boy on a journey that shaped everything that continues to follow.
If you need a good laugh you need to read Shay’s book. You will laugh out loud as he shares openly about race and life experiences.
I have had this smoldering idea of expanding my endurance running training into triathlons. That smoldering idea has been fueled by What The Fire Ignited.
Shay, thanks for sharing your story.
