If you have been to one of our March camps from 2010 onwards, you will no doubt have met Alaska Bob (Bob Smith).
Bob, who spent many years living and working in Valdez, Alaska, before retiring to Colorado, is known for letting his bike legs do most of his talking at camp. We all knew it would be just a matter of time before the Kona finishing line would see his name. This summer, he got serious, put his skateboarding hobby on hold:) and arrived in Kona fit and raring to go!
Alaska Bob’s 5 best moments of racing at the Ironman World Championships:
5. Kona Coffee at Lava Java
4. Swimming in the pier
3. All the energy from athletes from all the world
2. Seeing Alaska friends and my wife Sue cheering me on
1. Coming down from Alli Drive and entering the finishing chute. With Mike Riley telling me I’m an Ironman. (Also first Long Board beer after the finish).
STC – Awesome job Bob. Enjoy your off-season, we hope to see you in March at camp!
