Hooray for Sarah!


Another athlete on the course with Shelley in Kona was a woman who had a score to settle: Sarah Reinertsen, who missed the bike cutoff by 15 minutes last year. She was the first woman with an artificial leg to compete in the Hawaii Ironman World Championships - and in 2005, the first to complete the course (with a whole lot of people cheering for her). Here's her blog.

abc did a story on her. i think it was on nightline last friday. did you see it. she was so cute, such a tiny thing but made out of iron, no doubt. to see her smiling on that last part of the marathon and being so pleasant to the volunteers at the aid station. i was amazed.
