Description

Robin Chotzinoff has always been a rank amateur athlete. From yoga to snowboarding, she's tried it all, yet never found her sporting niche. Resigned to her own lack of calling, she hit the road in search of other not-necessarily-talented-but-incredibly-driven athletes-not the softball or football players, but the people sweating it out in the weird world of sports: spiritual bow hunters, competitive tree climbers, dedicated mall walkers, surfing housewives, and more. Whatever their inspiration, their tales are incredibly entertaining, as is Robin Chotzinoff herself, who after years of "terminal physical mediocrity" finds that it is possible to be athletic without being a good athlete, and whose storytelling abilities are unsurpassed.
