Happy birthday Bob.
Bob is one of my original TriLiving athlete, a true inspiration! his achievements to date are just to many to list but 2009 did see him compete in his 1st ironman in a time of 12:04:18. Just awesome.
But now he has just informed me that he is officially an OAP and proud of it, he also told me that he is referred to as an MTB by one of his “lady friends” (Mature Toy Boy!) and this really does sum him up much better.
Here is to been 65 and a whole new age group – how exciting.
It was a hard Day In Hawaii, but then it is always a hard day in Hawaii!! Hot, humid, windy and all the best Ironman athletes in the world ready to take on the challenge.
Stuart is one of the most dedicated, disciplined, motivated but understated athletes you will ever meet. He holds down a full time job with the daily telegraph in the city while managing to train successfully for Ironman competition. The training going into Hawaii has been hard, the weather has been bad, but Stuart just got on with what had to be done with no complaints. Stuart’s result in Hawaii is something most age group athletes only dream about. It is a fantastic achievement and well deserved. Well done and enjoy the REST of your time in Hawaii.
