"You are an Ironman"

Nov 2016

That was her greeting as Foundation Trustee Julia Harrison-Lee crossed the finishing line in the Florida Ironman challenge at Panama Beach City on Saturday 5th November. She had completed a 2.4 mile swim in 1 hour 28 minutes, a 112 mile bike ride in 6 hours 57 minutes and a full 26 mile marathon in 6 hours 50 minutes: a total of 15 hours 39 minutes, well within the 17 hour maximum set by the organisers to qualify as an 'Ironman'. Julia said it had been a very tough six month journey, taking her to the very depths of her mental and physical ability to train, endure and never give up. Julia's fellow trustees and the staff of the Peter Harrison Foundation are full of admiration for her tremendous affort.
