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.
