Dr. Larry Smith a Canadian chiropractor was one of over 2,500 people from 26 countries to compete in the Subaru Iron Man Canada Triathlon on Sunday, August 27, 2006. His efforts went toward raising money for the Edgewood Foundation. The Edgewood Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit, registered charitable society whose mission is to provide funding for addiction research, education and scholarships for those suffering from chemical dependency.
Smith's finishing time of 14 hours and 13 minutes was only slightly over his predicted time of 14 hours. "This was an absolutely amazing experience over a spectacular course. The support along the whole course was utterly incredible. I want to do this race again for sure", said Smith.
His Iron Man race coincides with the release of his new book entitled: Embrace the Journey of Recovery: From Tragedy to Triumph!
Embrace the Journey of Recovery is a book that teaches one to confront, conquer and overcome any life threatening illness that one may be experiencing right now. Experience the strength, determination and transformation of two courageous yet ordinary people as they discover and embrace the journey of recovery.
"I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to participate in the Iron Man Triathlon and to support a very worthy cause. Each one of us has our own story and our own journey. I truly hope that people realize it is always possible to turn tragedy into triumph," Smith said.
