You Are an Ironman - Book Review

This month I am right on time with my review for You Are an Ironman: How Six Weekend Warriors Chased Their Dream of Finishing the World’s Toughest Triathlon by Jacques Steinberg.

Over all, I really enjoyed this book as I enjoyed reading about the different back stories of all the Weekend Warriors!  I especially looked forward to reading every night near the end of the book as I couldn't wait to see how everyone was doing in their training and in the Ironman race itself.

Which of the potential Ironmen did you relate to the most? Why?
I think I related to Laura the best as I could see myself struggling with the swim portion and having an overwhelming fear.

When do you first remember watching or hearing about an Ironman?
I am not sure when I first remember hearing about an Ironman.  I did watch portions of an Ironman on TV a month or so ago.  I am sorry for not remember which one it was as I started watching it near the end, but it was on TSN.

Would you ever do an Ironman or a triathlon? Why or why not?
At this point I think not.  I am not much of a swimmer or a cyclist.

Great review! I'm glad you enjoyed the book. You were probably watching the Ironman World Championships, I think that is the only one that is on tv.
