Publisher's Summary

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. The race challenges athletes to swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, and run a full marathon of 26.2 miles, all while battling harsh conditions and their own willpower. 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.
