Winner of the 2015 Running Awards, voted Best Book 2015. In October 2012, over 1000 people applied to take part in a university research study to assess how normal, recreationally active people cope with the demands of training for their first IRON distance triathlon a 3.8km swim, followed by 180km of cycling and finishing with the mere matter of a 42.2km marathon run. This book is a collection of the tales from the people within the team affectionately known as the HURTS team, an acronym for ‘Hertfordshire University Research Triathlon Study’. Their individual goal was to inspire others to dream big and to live out those dreams, whether it be a triathlon or not. However, as a cohort, they wished to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a debilitating and fatal disorder. Their collective goal was to support Harrison’s Fund, set up in 2012 to support breakthrough research leading to positive interventions and ultimately a cure for muscular dystrophy worldwide. Triathlon – It HURTS is an inspiring story of what normal people can achieve when challenged. This book will appeal to those looking to learn more about the successes and harsh realities of training for a triathlon, as well as those who want an uplifting story of human achievement. “A wonderful book of inspiration from those who participate in the triathlon ... I found this book giving me hope” Jamie Chases Butterflies blog

From a fat 126kg, I am now an Ironman! Just like my journey towards financial freedom, my goal of getting healthy was not without its fair share of pitfalls. Through it all, as trite as it may sound, determination and goal-setting played a lead role in my success and they continue to assist me in my daily life. One of the reasons for this book is to address all the different emotions and thinking processes that took me through the several stages to getting healthy. I spent a lot of time in introspection, thinking about it, convincing myself; it took months, if not years. Fact is, I have been in the bottom rungs financially and in the extremely unhealthy zone physically. With a few tweaks and fine-tuning of priorities, I was able to achieve what is truly important to me in life. So, I strongly urge you to pull yourself out of the rung or zone that you are unhappy to be stuck in – be it fitness, finance or family. Updated 2016

For years, John Toth lived his life feeling empty, lonely, and even suicidal. He exercised sporadically, looked for better jobs every once in a while, and drank constantly. Even with a loving wife and children, something was missing from John's life, and he knew he would have to sober up to find it. After admitting his problem to his wife, John attended an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting and made the familiar confession, 'I'm John, and I'm an alcoholic.' After ninety meetings in ninety days, as if getting sober wasn't hard enough, John decided to take on another challenge and start competing in triathlons. The Alcoholic Ironman follows John from his first 5K run to the Lake Placid Ironman in New York. With no experience running, swimming, or cycling, John faces as many struggles on his way to becoming an Ironman as he does on his way to becoming sober. After almost drowning during his first two triathlon swims, John wonders what he's gotten himself into. His triathlon training, like his quest for sobriety, never goes perfectly. But despite countless setbacks, John puts one foot in front of the other and keeps going. An inspirational read for anyone who battles addiction, low self-esteem, depression, or any other challenges, The Alcoholic Iron Man will motivate all readers to face life's obstacles head-on and find the Ironman in themselves.

Despite being a bit-part fitness fanatic, Hollie set herself what she thought was the almost impossible goal of getting off the sofa and completing an ironman. Hollie's Road to Kona begins as a story of one young triathlete's ambition to conquer one of the hardest sporting endurance tests out there, but after a personal tragedy, the story develops into a journey to honour her niece and best friend. Crossing the finish line on that first 17-hour event, wrought with fatigue, but buzzing at having just realised her dream of becoming an ironman, Hollie is greeted with the tragic news of the death of her niece Rosie. Completing the race was meant to be the end, but it is only the beginning, and so begins the story of that journey. Hollie suffers some spectacular highs, crushing lows and fights through the fog of depression as she undertakes a gruelling training schedule as she aims to deliver on a promise made to her late friend and compete at the Ironman World Championships.
