Catalina Channel record holder Todd Robinson of San Diego (8:05 from Catalina-to-mainland) was the subject of a inspirational article in the winter issue of Competitor Magazine, a publication normally the exclusive domain of triathletes, cyclists and runners.
His focus and well-roundedness was abundantly clear in the article.
It outlined his fascinating life, including a childhood that required him to take three trains and a bike ride over a two-hour period to travel one-way to swim practice, and described his inherent toughness that is characterized by his career as a Assistant US Attorney General specializing in prosecuting gang and narcotic cases.
The modest, yet intense, attorney is undoubtedly a man of steel.
