Trip has a chance to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and run 26.2 miles amongst the best triathletes in the world. In order to reach his goal, he will draw upon more than physical strength, endurance and determination. Know Regrets is in a story telling category with Rocky, The Rookie or American Flyers.

Dynamic action scenes move the story forward with gusto.” writes world renowned Kurkus Review.
