Chris McCormack: Life As Ironman World Champion

I cannot tell you how excited I am to share today’s guest — a man who needs no introduction — triathlon legend Chris “Macca” McCormack.

This interview is PURE GOLD!

In case you’ve been living under a rock and have never heard of Macca, he is one of the winningest triathletes of all time, dominant at all distances from sprint to Ironman.  He is a two-time Ironman World Champion and victor in over 200 triathlon races, including 12 Ironman titles, the 1997 ITU World Cup Series and the 1997 Triathlon World Championships, to name just a few.

If you are a fan of Macca, then you’ve probably heard more than a few of his more outspoken — but always entertaining — interviews.  I didn’t want to reap an over-plowed field, so I chose to instead focus on aspects of his life less well-known — how he handles the balance of training and family life; how turning 40 has impacted his always evolving perspective on training and racing; and how he is learning to leverage social media as a service tool to help better communicate with and educate his amateur athlete fan base.  case in point – check out his MX12 Training Videos by clicking  HERE.

I am super proud of this episode — Chris could not have been more candid, engaging and fun.  I hope you enjoy the show as much as I enjoyed doing it!
