I'm not sure what's cooler
A. She's 78 and doing Ironman races
B. She's 78 and rides aero on a pimped up tri bike
C. She's 78 and decked out like a true roadie. If both of my socks matches when I'm 78, I'm going to out and buy a lottery ticket.
I looked up some of her race results on Athlinks. Holy moly!! Literally! I think I'm going to crawl back into bed now...
D. She's a NUN doing triathlons! :)
Watch any of the last 15 years of the Hawaii IM shows and they will talk about her in EVERY single show.
yeah, she's pretty incredible. she stays with my family every year when she races in FL. it's always an inspiration when talking to her and she's QUITE the celeb in the tri community. every time i walked around with her folks flocked around us like groupies and wanted her autograph. pretty funny.
thanks for sharing the link. she emailed to say abc was doing a story and i completely forgot about it!
