On Saturday Dec. 7 at 11:00 am at the Joggins Fossil Centre, Ironman Jeff Burbine will use words and pictures to tell his inspiring story, a story that culminated this past October at Ironman Worlds in Kona, Hawaii. “I will be hosting a talk about my passion-triathlon-and my journey to the 2013 Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii,” says Burbine. “Everyone is welcome; I'm hoping to see some of my olds friends, and anyone who is interested in discussing why anyone in their right mind would do a race that lasts 140.6 miles. Hope to see you all soon.”
