Age grouper of the week

I listen to your show every week and look forward to hearing about "all things Ironman"
I would like to nominate an age grouper of the week. His name is Mark VanAkkeren. He is 27.
Yesterday at Honu 70.3, he won the swim with a 24:09 and kept pace with the pros on the bike with a 2:15 bike split. He ended up going a 4:16, and won his age group by 16 minutes or so. He was the second amateur finisher. I know for sure that before the race he was drinking some coffee from "Coffees of Hawaii"
I can't think of a better guy to receive this distinction. Maybe you can talk him into coming to epic camp this January.
Cheers guys,
Rob
