HDB’s Geoff Steffens will be in Kona, HI October 13th, not lazing on the beach with a colorful umbrella drink in his hand but swimming, riding and running in the men’s 50-54 Ironman 140.3 World Championships. (Yep, if you read this earlier we said 70.3. We had it way wrong and this one will be much more difficult for Geoff). Geoff qualified for the race this past May with a second place finish in Santa Rosa, CA.
Well wishes to Geoff. Remember to get in some beach time with a pretty umbrella drink after the race. You deserve it after a year of hard training and racing.
