Publisher's Summary

"I was a few days shy of 40 on the day Steve Ilg clutched my limb. I was almost middle-aged, laid out like a lab specimen in a New Mexico gym, and quite sure as the vise tightened that I was going to pass the milestone of my birthday with a left leg capable of bending the wrong way at the knee. It was then that I paused to consider again the array of follies that can attend an otherwise reasonable life."

In The Ilgiad, Donald Katz takes us along on his path to physical fitness as he trains for a triathlon under the guidance of his personal sports-performance trainer, Steve Ilg.

    "This is a SHORT story."

    As a triathlon freak I'd hoped for a little more focus on the event. This is an authors story more of the interface with his unique Triathlon training than it is about the training or the event. It is a short, fun, listen, but is really a short story about two people moreso than triathlon.
