Just the thought of the sound of Mike’s voice, saying those words, in that way, at that time, was the beacon that kept me going. Every day for six months of training before the IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, I visualized crossing the finish line. I didn’t see an image, I just heard the sound of Mike Reilly’s voice declaring “Sean Astin, You Are An IRONMAN!” Just the thought of the sound of Mike’s voice, saying those words, in that way, at that time, was the beacon that kept me going.

I have heard so many people say that it was such an honor to hear Mike call their name as they crossed over the finish line and I finally got to experience it myself. It was truly magical, and that magic is beautifully described in Mike’s new book. It’s filled with unique insights, such heartfelt and moving stories, and a deeply personal take on why Mike has been so passionate about this sport of triathlon and the people that are caught up in its spell.

As I hit the top of the finish ramp I heard that amazing voice and those unbelievable words, ‘Hines Ward…you are an IRONMAN!’ Like the touchdown pass I caught to win the 2005 Super Bowl, hearing Mike Reilly declare me an IRONMAN was one of the greatest moments of my life.

Experiencing that same feeling of accomplishment myself at many marathons and IRONMAN triathlons cannot be equaled.

The voice and passion of Mike Reilly bringing you home, lifts you up, and fulfills dreams for a lifetime. Now you can discover for yourself what’s behind that passion in his wonderful new book, Mike Reilly: Finding My Voice.

"During forty years on the microphone at endurance events, it’s been all about the athletes for me. So, in one fell swoop with one swell book, I’m going to let it all hang out."

- MIKE REILLY


IRONMAN is a sports phenomenon that has come to symbolize the very best of human striving, achievement and excellence. And race announcer Mike Reilly is known throughout the endurance sports world as the “Voice of IRONMAN.”


Every year, over three hundred thousand people around the world compete in a series of long-distance triathlons that test the outer limits of their physical abilities and mental toughness. Some do it for glory, some to test themselves, some to honor lost loved ones or colleagues, some to bring healing to their troubled lives.


Over the years, hundreds of IRONMAN athletes have shared their tales with Reilly. In this book, he tells some of the stories that have touched and inspired him, in the hope that they will do the same for the reader.

A young woman races in a contest against cancer that threatens her life. A soldier carries a flag through the full marathon distance to keep alive the memory of fallen comrades. Two of the sport’s most decorated champions do battle in the greatest head-to-head competition ever seen in any sport. Parents put their family back together after the loss of a child.


Reilly has witnessed it all, and brings it to life in a series of riveting stories that will have readers re-thinking their notions of what people are capable of when pushed to their limits.
