Publisher's Summary

Ironman is a sports phenomenon that has come to symbolize the very best of human striving, achievement, and excellence. And race announcer Mike Reilly is known throughout the endurance sports world as the "Voice of Ironman."

Every year, over 300,000 people around the world compete in a series of long-distance triathlons that test the outer limits of their physical abilities and mental toughness. Some do it for glory, some to test themselves, some to honor lost loved ones or colleagues, some to bring healing to their troubled lives.

Over the years, hundreds of Ironman athletes have shared their tales with Reilly. In this book, he tells some of the stories that have touched and inspired him, in the hope that they will do the same for the listener.

A young woman races in a contest against cancer that threatens her life. A soldier carries a flag through the full marathon distance to keep alive the memory of fallen comrades. Two of the sport's most decorated champions do battle in the greatest head-to-head competition ever seen in any sport. Parents put their family back together after the loss of a child.

Reilly has witnessed it all, and brings it to life in a series of riveting stories that will have readers re-thinking their notions of what people are capable of when pushed to their limits.

Great book

I loved it. I listened to it while operating a crane at work. Hopefully nobody saw me sobbing in there wondering what was wrong with me. Make sure you keep tissues close.

thank you, Mike Reilly!

This was a great book while in training for my first 140.6. Some stories were laugh out loud while others brought me close to tears. Thank you for being the voice of Ironman and the voice of this book.

Truly amazing & inspiring

Mike does a EXCELLENT job in bringing you into a world that is only seen by few and viewed by many. He make endurance sports (Ironman specifically) seem achievable to all (which it can be) while providing a well narrated story to bring you on a journey of how he and Ironman races became one.
I enjoyed every minute and found myself going back and re-listening to a lot the recounts to make sure I took everything in.

Thank you Mike and thank you for what you bring to the sport of Ironman!!!

Goosebumps !!

Mike captures the absolute joy of crossing the line and is able to somehow articulate the inexplicable thrall of IRONMAN.
Having been rendered speechless when I made it over the line (apparently that's ok !) I'd like to say 'thank you' now. Thank you for getting me over the line and thank you for writing such an amazing book. Aloha x

Just Wow!!!!!

Amazing insight into some of the most amazing stories of ordinary people overcoming adversity and going on to complete one of the toughest races in the world. I think the fact that Mike narrates this book himself it gives you a deeper connection to the stories. highly recommended.
