Recognized the world as the “Voice of IRONMAN,” Mike Reilly has called over 180 IRONMAN events, including 30 straight years of the World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawai’i. More than 350,000 athletes have heard his iconic pronouncement, “You are an IRONMAN!” as they crossed the finish line and accomplished something most of us can hardly imagine.

Every one of those athletes has a story, and Reilly has heard hundreds of them. Ever passionate about the sport and its participants, he listened closely as they poured out remarkable tales that illuminate the human capacity for triumphing over seemingly insurmountable obstacles.

At long last, at the urging of many friends and athletes, Reilly has written a book about what he’s seen and what he’s learned. “I was involved in every story I relate,” Reilly says. “This book is a deeply personal glimpse into the fascinating world of the greatest endurance event of them all.”

A firefighter nearly given up for dead after a horrific accident fights his way back to an IRONMAN start line. A former US Marine, battling PTSD after losing many of his comrades in a deadly battle, finds healing in IRONMAN. Two professional triathletes battle each other in what might be the greatest head-to-head athletic competition of any kind, ever.

Profoundly moving and inspirational, the stories range from the incredible to the hilarious and the book has already received raves from such luminaries (and IRONMAN finishers) as actor-producer-director Sean Astin, Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward, Boston Marathon race director Dave McGillivray and professional triathletes Lionel Sanders and Mirinda Carfrae.
