The man WITHOUT the Halo is back…

“Boston was important for me. That was my transition… I’m trying now to not see myself as someone recovering from injury.”

That event represented the first step on the (racing) recovery journey for Tim Don, following his terrible bike accident and resulting broken neck just prior to the 2017 IRONMAN World Championship in Hawaii.
