I started to read You are an Ironman by Jacques Steinberg when I thought I was going to sign up for IMAZ back in fall of 2011. After I did not sign up for that race, I put it down. I finally came back to it. I would say it’s a good story following everyday age groupers. I frankly was a little disappointed with it from an inspiration perspective. It was a solid book but kinda dragged on at times. I found some of the Ironman TV coverage to have a bit more inspirational stories. I do suggest it as a must read for anyone doing IMAZ. A solid read but not necessarily a must read.
