His Back Round

After a long and reasonably successful career in the chemical industry in the north east of England I was fortunate to get the opportunity to retire at the age of fifty five. My retirement plan was to continue to compete as a triathlete, travel and complete my undergraduate degree which I had started when I realised that my time in the world of work was coming to an end. Unfortunately, four weeks after finishing work fate intervened and I was struck by a car while training on my bike. I knew almost immediately that my injuries were significant and serious enough that triathlon was not going to be an option in my retirement – a bit of a blow that to be honest.
