Dr. Geron is back from the IRONMAN 70.3 in Cairns, Australia!

Posted by on June 29, 2017

Did you know that Dr. Geron isn’t just a seasoned chiropractor and ART® provider, he’s also an Ironman?

Dr. Geron has recently returned from Cairns, a city in Queensland, Australia, where he participated in the IRONMAN 70.3. The course featured a memorable swim in the warm waters of Tropical North Queensland (2km), followed by bicycling up what is arguably the most scenic coastal roads in Australia towards Port Douglas (90km). The race finished with a run along the Cairns boardwalk, finally finishing in the heart of the city of Cairns (21km).

What an experience!

We would have been proud of him simply for participating, particularly since he was recovering from a torn hamstring in April, but he also finished as 14th in his age category out of 58 people!


2km swim: 35:17
90km bike: 2:37:42
21.1km run: 1:57:49
Total race time: 5:26:31

Dr. Geron has qualified for the 70.3 Half Ironman taking place in Chattanooga, Tennessee on September 10th, 2017. We wish him good training and a healthy hamstring as he continues his training in preparation for Tennessee!

Preparing to hit the waves!

Heading into the water at 6:54am – the dude in the purple swim cap and sleeveless wetsuit.

Out of the water and checking his time… he’s pleased with the results!


Geron is out of the water in 35:17 and ecstatic to have a wetsuit stripper!

Ready to tackle the 90km ride.

Long transition to run out before mounting the bike! He seemed happy and was yelling to his wife, Shelley, to confirm his swim time! 🏊 😉

In the riding groove.


Dr. Geron’s daughter Abbie flew in for the occasion!!! 💓💗💞 Dr. Geron and his wife, Shelley, hadn’t seen her in 4 months!

Dr. Geron was so happy to see his little girl for the first time in 4 months that he had to stop mid-race for a kiss from Abbie!

❤️ inspiration for the remainder of the race

The big finale with times! Congratulations on coming in 14th in your age category!

Kissing his wife with his great medal!

Half Ironman Cairns FINISHER, Geron! 5:26:30 – he was ecstatic after battling a torn hamstring for several weeks.

So happy to have finished and to be reunited with his daughter.

The much deserved medal!

See you in Chattanooga, Tennessee on September 10th for the 70.3 Half Ironman! In the meantime, along with lots of training, Dr. Geron is reinvigorated and looking forward to spending a great summer with all of his clients. See you soon!
