That may be an understatement after we just finished up hosting Craig Alexander, the current Ironman Triathlon World Champion at our San Diego sports medicine center for the Triathlon Club of San Diego’s January club meeting and the kick-off event for the Competitor Magazine’s Endurance Sports Awards weekend.
The event was a huge success with over 300+ triathlon club members there to hear the Craig Alexander interview with Bob Babbitt of Competitor Magazine and John Duke of Triathlete Magazine.
While there were a lot to choose from, including a surprise appearance by 6-time Ironman World Champion Dave Scott, and a great interview by Bob and John with Craig Alexander; my highlight was the triathlon club’s presentation to club member Skip Gleavey and his comments that he gets up every morning and pushes himself because he doesn’t want to let other club members down. That’s a outstanding statement coming from someone who serves as a role model of persistence, inspiration and never-quitting. If you don’t know Skip’s story – read about it here.
