"Paul's story reminds us that cancer affects the entire family, in every way, not just the person physically battling the disease. Iron Dad is a powerful testament to resilience, courage, and the unbreakable bond between father and child. His ongoing determination and desire to live a great life despite the disease truly reflects what it means to Livestrong."

-Suzanne Stone, president and CEO of Livestrong

"An incredible story of perseverance, courage, and love, Iron Dad celebrates the power of choosing hope, the unique bond between fathers and daughters, and the resilience to believe in the impossible. A powerful story!"

-Victoria Brumfield, CEO of USA Triathlon

"An inspiring testament to the human spirit. It's a must-read for anyone seeking motivation and proof that anything is possible."

-George Mahood, bestselling author of Operation Ironman

"Weigel's narrative of crossing an Ironman finish line a mere six months after chemotherapy stands as a testament to human resilience and determination. His transformative life journey was sparked by his love and bond for his daughter, which also fueled his drive to write his memoir-underscoring the profound influence of parenthood. Paul is filled with the spirit of perseverance, making him an Ironman in every sense!"

-Mike Reilly, Voice of Ironman, member of the USA Triathlon Hall of Fame, the Ironman Hall of Fame, and the Running USA Hall of Champions

"A powerful story of finding determination and joy in the face of fear and pain, Iron Dad reminds us that 'miracles' can happen, and families are a team that motivate us when we need them most."

-Michael Eruzione, Olympic gold medal winner, former ice hockey player, and captain of the 1980 Winter Olympics United States National Team ("Miracle on Ice")

"There are plenty of tips for runners training for any kind of race. But Paul Weigel trained for and completed an Ironman within six months of finishing chemotherapy for colorectal cancer, all while raising his toddler daughter. That kind of endurance transcends athletic advice. Iron Dad shares how he managed such a feat-and why it was worth doing-inspiring all of us along the way."

-Amby Burfoot, 1968 Boston Marathon winner, former editor-in-chief of Runner's World
