Part I - The Confetti Method

By Bonnie Intrepid

I have developed a finely tuned method of selecting my races each season. I gather imperative information and categorize it by importance. For example, I have the race bling category, the flat terrain category and the cool name category. These are high on the priority list for obvious reasons.

This humor was carried from the races onto the pages of Inside Triathlon, where Leib wrote a column, "The Lighter Side of Triathlon" for over ten years. With the ten years of stories, Leib has created the book, "Sex, Lies, and Triathlon" which is definitely one of the most refreshing and fun books I have read on the sport of triathlon. The book is filled with hilarious short stories, that make for an easy fun read. While the booked has its share of funny events/incidents that Leib has witness throughout his triathlon career, it is also filled with Leib's unique and humorous viewpoint on the sport, which I found to be very refreshing.
