About Herb Spicer:
Herb Spicer is a 52 year old baby boomer. But he is no ordinary 52 year old baby boomer. Herb is an elite Ironman triathlete. In 2007, Herb won the Half Ironman World Championship for his age group, setting a course record for his age group against top competition. He also placed first in his age group by approximately twenty minutes in three consecutive races, Eagleman (70.3), Buffalo Springs Lake (70.3), and Vineman (70.3), and finished ahead of many of the much younger, top professional triathletes, such as Desiree Ficker. In Herb's four Half Ironman races in 2007, he placed first in his age group in all four and set course records in at least three of the races. Not only is he fast, he is tough. At the 2007 Hawaii Ironman World Championships, Herb finished third in his age group just eleven days after suffering severe injuries in a bicycle accident.
Liberty Sport Sponsorship:
On October 10, 2007, Herb signed an agreement with his newest sponsor, Liberty Sport, maker of the famous Recs Specs. Liberty Sport will be supplying Herb with its high quality prescription goggles and prescription running and bicycling eyewear.

Herb will be sporting his new eyewear for the first time at the 2007 Hawaii Ironman. He is "excited to finally be able to see clearly in the water and on the bike and run while enjoying the benefits of high quality, stylish sunglasses and top notch goggles." Herb thanks his new sponsor for their support.
