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

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.

A New York Times bestselling author takes readers inside the Ironman triathlon. As he did so masterfully in his New York Times bestseller, The Gatekeepers, Jacques Steinberg creates a compelling portrait of people obsessed with reaching a life-defining goal. In this instance, the target is an Ironman triathlon-a 2.4-mile open-water swim followed by a 112-mile bike ride, then finally a 26-mile marathon run, all of which must be completed in no more than seventeen hours. Steinberg focuses not on the professionals who live off the prize money and sponsorships but on a handful of triathletes who regard the sport as a hobby. Vividly capturing the grueling preparation, the suspense of completing each event of the triathlon, and the spectacular feats of human endurance, Steinberg plumbs the physical and emotional toll as well as the psychological payoff on the participants of the Ford Ironman Arizona 2009. His You Are an Ironman is both a riveting sports narrative and a fascinating, behind-the scenes study of what makes these athletes keep going..
