Listening to Lyle Roberts talk about his 13th Kona IronMan World Championships, it is difficult to believe his retirement plans.

"Eighty and out," Roberts said after completing his first IronMan as an 80-year old.
But this year's event left Roberts feeling the best he has after the grueling triathlon.

"I felt so good running in. I was smiling," he said.
