Russell Newell

A critically acclaimed author, former writer for Disney-ABC Television, and six-time Ironman, Russell Newell plunged into the world of Ironman triathlon in 2012 at Lake Placid and has explored every cutting-edge nutritional supplement and muscle recovery tool to coax his creaking body to get out of bed each morning to swim, bike, and run. He has sought every aerodynamic adjustment and equipment edge to beat his archrival, Jim Kane, in a series of races more fraught than the last ones. With a very accommodating wife, three young kids, and a baby on the way, he’s continued to race these torturous, bank account-sucking, narcotic-level addicting affairs, while poorly trying to balance his family life. His book, Irondad Life, explores just how poorly.
