Johnny Agar was inspired to write “The Impossible Mile”


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Johnny Agar once inspired the western Michigan community by becoming an Iron Man athlete while living with cerebral palsy. He competed in the endurance race alongside his father, who pushed him to the last mile, where he crossed the finish line to victory.

Agar is back with “The Impossible Mile: The Power In Living Life One Step at a Time”, a book he co-wrote with his mother Becki Agar.

Agar, from Rockford, said the community support he received inspired him to share his story.

“It really gave me a lot of courage because, you know, in my mind, I just do it because I love doing it and I love helping people, but when you can visibly see people saying to you.” it helped me get over my addiction, it helped me lose weight ”, anyway, it really gives you a feeling of okay, that’s why I’m doing this, that’s why I have to keep doing it. The community really embraced my life message and I think it was really an encouragement for me and my mother to write the book, ”Hagar said.

The book is available in bookstores now.
