Age grouper of the week

Sarah Hawkins sent through this weeks age grouper, here’s who email:
We moved house to Dorset approx 8 miles from the venue of Ironman UK two weeks before so his ironman training including unpacking furniture! The day before the event he fell off his bike and bruised his hip and took a few layers of skin off his shoulder and elbow .... looked very sore.  But his bike was OK!!!!
Ed soldiered on and in true PIRATE spirit he peeled on his wetsuit and faced the Ironman!  This was only his fourth ever triathlon race after a sprint, an olympic and a half ironman distance... here it was his first attempt at Ironman (he wants a tattoo badly!)
He finished in 11 hours and 6 minutes and smiled the whole way round and stayed upright on his bike!  He crossed the finish line with our dog Jack who supported him all the way round and joined in the cheering at the finish line with a few woofs!!  I was very proud of his 190th position out of approx 1600 competitors WOW not bad for a first one eh????!!!!
 So here I give you ED HAWKINS of the UK.......Age grouper of the week (Pleeeeeease!!) Respect guys .... your podcasts have kept him going on those long sessions

Mrs Sarah Hawkins - Ironwife!

Product Review Centre

Triathlon: Through the Eyes of the Elite tells the dramatic and compelling stories that revolve around the young sport of Triathlon. From an in-depth and truly unique perspective, we share both the historical documentation and evolution of the sport as well as the lifestyle, perseverance and passion of the professional triathlete. Our film is essentially a "behind the scenes" look at the sport of Triathlon with the Olympics serving as the dramatic backdrop.
