Upcoming Book Tours for From Couch Potato to Endurance Athlete

book tours for hilary topper

My upcoming book tour is right around the corner. As you know, I wrote my third book, From Couch Potato to Endurance Athlete – A Portrait of a Non-Athletic Triathlete. The book is about my journey over the past 10 years and includes my business life, personal life, and my running and triathlon journey.

Tours are set around the country but for this blog, I’m only mentioning the ones that are in August and some in September. I’ll announce new ones shortly.

Major Sponsor – Sumarpo

The major sponsor of the book tour is Sumarpo. Sumarpo is an amazing wetsuit company. I have a couple of their wetsuits and absolutely love them. As the sponsor, they will be providing participants at the tours with bookmarks and other surprises. They are giving all my followers a 20 percent discount off all Sumarpo wetsuits and other apparel. Go to http://www.sumarpo.com and use Hilary20 to get 20 percent off at checkout!
