Faith Middleton Show: Amy Bloom and the Author of You Are an Ironman
The Ironman triathlon: a 2.4-mile open-water swim, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26-mile marathon run—all completed in seventeen hours or less. For some, that demonstration of stamina and quitlessness is a life-defining goal. Jacques Steinberg’s You Are an Ironman follows six hobbyist triathletes through their grueling preparation and the suspense of completing each event of the Ford Ironman Arizona 2009. Steinberg joins us.
