Today on the Marni on The Move podcast I am joined by world-renowned IRONMAN race announcer, Mike Reilly, also known as the Voice of IRONMAN. Mike is the author of Finding My Voice, and host of the Find Your Finish Line Podcast. If you are just tuning in, this is episode three of our six episode triathlon series here on the pod. Mike has announced over 200 IRONMAN Races, so the odds are, if you finished one of these incredible events, Mike has announced your name as your crossed the finish line. If you are like me on the 70.3 circuit, be prepared to start looking for your first IRONMAN
On this episode of Marni on the Move, I sync up with Mike to about his legendary announcing career and where it all began, We talk about his foray into triathlon aand what the scene was like when he startedvs wgere it is now. Mike shares favorite memories from his decades-long career being the voice that motivates and excites racers as they conquer the course. (Including the famous Iron War race with triathlon icons Mark Allen and Dave Scott)
Mike also talks about his own exercise and wellness routines, how his family is passionate about sports and how he loves what he does. Mike was every bit as energetic and enthusiastic in person as he is over the microphone. I think he might even have motivated me to take on the full IRONMAN sooner than I planned!
