About this Article

One-year-old Matt squeals happily while he plays with his 5-year-old sister Molly. Their mother, Jennifer Garrison of Naperville, casually checks on her kids while discussing how she manages being a mother of three, coaching triathletes, and volunteering at her children's school -- while still making time to work out. Garrison is one of seven co-authors of the new book "Tri-Mom: Swimming, Biking, and Running Through Motherhood."
