Racing the Sunset

Rating
A seventh generation Californian, Scott Tinley led the quintessential Golden State dream. As he grew from beach rat to lifeguard to a recreational administration major, it seemed only natural to him that he would try to parlay the athletic skills gleaned from this idyllic lifestyle into a profession as one of the best triathletes in the world. And for twenty years, his skill, tenacity and blonde devil-may-care attitude guided him along the always-precarious path of professional sport.
But when the hands of time finally took hold of his legs, and no amount of training would prop up his performances, his athletic gold rush went bust. Cracks in his psyche began to show, as if beneath it all, like much of California itself, his life had been built on a fault and triathlon had been a stage set. Always introspective and inquiring, Tinley threw himself headlong into the subject of athlete retirement and the larger issues of life transition and change. His new journey, driven by his quest for personal growth and healing, was filled with pain, false starts, and heartrending intimacies. It lead him to hundreds of other professional athletes who would openly discuss their own triumphs and tragedies when the cheering stopped. Applying the discipline of a lifelong athlete, Tinley completed one of the most thorough research projects ever attempted on retiring athletes and befriended the likes of such thoughtful superstars as Bill Walton, Eric Heiden, Greg Lemond, Jerry Sherk, Steve Scott and Rick Sutcliffe. Along the way he uncovered secrets about himself and the process of change, turmoil and final acceptance, ideas that he shares openly and eloquently in Racing the Sunset. Tinley has carved apath that anyone facing a major life transition should consider. This book will do for athletes of every level what Passages did for an entire generation.
