From Super Vet to Iron Vet
19 September 2018
We have previously reported that one of our Specialists, Dr Stephen Baines, officially became a Super Vet after winning the Birmingham Running Athletics and Triathlon Club Olympic Distance Triathlon, in the Super Veteran (Super Vet) age group.
This year he attempted something more challenging and recently completed an ironman distance triathlon. To the uninitiated, this comprises a 3.8km (2.4 mile) swim, a 180km (112 mile) bike ride and a 42km (26.2mile) run. Yes, that’s a marathon on top of a long swim and a very long ride!
As you might imagine, all of this takes quite a long time, and Stephen finished in a very good time of 11 hours 45 minutes and was placed 15th in his age group out of 137.
It’s difficult to appear photogenic after such a full day of activity or to look like you are enjoying it, but the final picture shows that it was worth all the effort.
