In I'M HERE TO WIN, Chris "Macca" McCormack opens his playbook and reveals everything it takes-mind, body, and spirit-to become a champion. Now he shares the story of his triumphs and the never-say-die dedication that has made him the world's most successful triathlete.

In 2010, at the age of 37, Macca beat the odds and won the Ford Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii for a second time in what many called the most dramatic finish in the race's history. Macca's journey to athletic greatness is more than just one of physical perseverance. After coming in fourth in Hawaii in 2009, Macca returned to the island on a mission: He was there to win. A game plan containing a new strategic approach to winning brought him first across the finish line.

Chris McCormack has dedicated his life to training for-and winning-the Ironman Hawaii, 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, 26.2 miles, using all their strength and willpower to overcome the incredibly harsh conditions.

In I'M HERE TO WIN Macca provides concrete training advice for everyone-from weekend warriors who casually compete to seasoned veterans who race every week to armchair athletes looking for an extra push-and provides insight into the mind of a great champion with excitement and inspiration at every turn.

I'M HERE TO WIN is also available as an enhanced e-book with embedded video and audio. Download and start listening now!

    " Chris McCormack is my favorite triathlete and I liked reading his take on racing and the sport of tri. But this book could really have used a better editor, it was a bit repetitive in places and he doesn't have to work so hard to convince us that he's a great triathlete. Let your record do that talking. "

    " I *wanted* to like this. I really wanted to walk away from this book thinking that Macca is misunderstood. But, the book just further solidified Macca's image as an cocky asshole. I am and will always be Team Crowie. "

    " Really enjoyed reading this book and often found myself laughing out loud every time he talked about the mental games with the other athletes. He really opened up a lot in this book and cemented the fact that he is my favorite athlete. "

    " Really enjoyed reading this book. Macca's road to his second Kona championship win is pure adrenaline and reading his book one gets to understand the focus, dedication and passion of Chris McCormack to triathlon and the ups and downs of walking the path of a professional triathlete. Lots of great quips and nuggets of tri wisdom to takeaway. Makes for riveting reading and couldn't put the book down once I started. "
