As the winner of the 2010 Ironman Championship in Kona, Hawaii, Chris "Macca" McCormack may be the world's greatest athlete. In I'm Here to Win, McCormack shares his story, along with training tips and practical advice to help listeners develop their own routines, diet, exercise programs, and race strategies. Chris McCormack has dedicated his life to training for - and winning - the Ironman World Championships, one of the most grueling tests of mental and physical endurance in the world.

In 2010, McCormack won the Ironman World Championship for the second time at 37 years old - a testament to his fitness and endurance. Macca's journey to athletic greatness is more than just one of physical perseverance. After coming in fourth in Hawaii last year, Macca returned to the island chanting, "I'm here to win!" He had a new mental game plan in place that brought him first across the finish line. In this much-anticipated book, Macca shares his playbook and reveals everything it takes - mind, body, and spirit - to become a champion. In addition to his Ironman wins in Hawaii, Macca holds the record for the most triathlon race wins ever and it's his winning strategies and mindset that he now brings to the listener in I'm Here to Win. For weekend warriors who casually compete to seasoned veterans who race every weekend, armchair athletes looking for an extra push, and everyone in between,I'm Here to Win provides riveting insight into the mind of a great champion with excitement and inspiration in every minute. 1.

Moss, J: Crawl of Fame

In 1982, Julie Moss ran the Ironman triathlon for her college senior research project. Her idea was quirky, even crazy; only a handful of hardcore, highly trained enthusiasts competed in the little-known, 140.6-mile combination of swimming, cycling, and running. Julie brought no experience or appreciable training beyond running two marathons. She did bring a latent willpower that, the world soon found out, wouldn't be denied. What happened next changed Ironman forever . . . After becoming the unlikely leader during the marathon, the final leg of the Ironman, Julie fell and lost all bodily function fifteen meters (50 feet) from the finish. While on hands and knees, she watched her rival pass her. Thirty seconds later, she crawled across the line-stunning the millions who were watching on television. At age twenty-three, Julie became the instant global icon, and the public face of fitness and endurance sports - which exploded in popularity, partly because of her inspiration. That this young co-ed would represent such a new sport was unlikely. That she would inspire millions to change the courses of their lives in the three decades years since was unthinkable. Yet, it happened. And keeps happening. In April 2017 Julie won her age group in the Ironman North American Championships-racing 25 minutes faster than her 1982 Ironman. How does a 58-year-old woman beat the time of her 23-year-old self? Which begs the question, could she also beat her 1982 time in the more demanding Kona?  That's the goal, and the world will find out in October 2018. Crawl of Fame is the long-awaited release of her incredible story. Julie describes how she found her greater purpose while lying across the finish line at Ironman 1982 - and how that greater purpose as a woman, athlete, endurance sports symbol and, now, iconic figure has defined her life and inspired others since. Several endurance sports athletes have written memoirs, but none have changed a sport so dramatically as Julie Moss. Now, readers will join the inner and outer journey of one of the world's most impressive athletes, a woman who has already inspired millions - with millions more to come.
