I'm a former accountant who has amused herself by raising two kids for the last 19 years. Since the kids are in school, I've had time to run 7 marathons, 24 half marathons, countless road races and triathlons. Despite treatment for breast cancer in 2010-2011, I became an Ironman in 2012 after finishing Ironman Florida in 12:54:05 and did it again in 2013, finishing in 12:01:19. Luckily, I've got my 5 time Ironman husband and two patient and enthusiastic teenagers on my team. No matter how it turns out, it's bound to be an adventure. Life is a marathon, so pace yourself and run your own race.
