    Story

    Johan Bruyneel knows what it takes to win. In 1998, this calculating Belgian and former professional cyclist looked Lance Armstrong in the eye and said, "Look, if were going to ride the Tour, we might as well win." In that powerful phrase a dynasty was born.

    Ian says: "Great read, mediocre narration."

    Story

    As the winner of the 2010 Ironman Championship in Kona, Hawaii, Chris "Macca" McCormack may be the world's greatest athlete. In I'm Here to Win, McCormack shares his story along with training tips and practical advice to help listeners develop their own routines, diet, exercise programs and race strategies. Chris McCormack has dedicated his life to training for - and winning - the Ironman World Championships, one of the most grueling tests of mental and physical endurance in the world.

    Brian says: "Great way to pass the miles..."
    "great motivational story"

    If you could sum up I'm Here to Win in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, bold, fun


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maca- he's got drive, talent, boldness, and a great sense of humor. Aussies make some of the best triathletes. They know how to have fun


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    yes, great narration- it moves with enthusiasm


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    to follow your dreams, like Chris did when he left the security of a job for the life of a pro and didn't have a clue what was going to happen next


    Any additional comments?

    Maca should come back to Kona and do another Ironman - he is great at any distance. Everyone experiences the heat, so it's an even playing field

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    this book is adventurous, exciting, moving, and educational. I would recommend it to anyone that loves running and listening to the offbeat stories of those that live outside the box.
