Member of Congress to become Ironman
November 19 , 2013
Krysten Sinema is an interesting member of Congress not only because she is the first openly bisexual one but also because she finished the Ironman triathlon.
The Arizona Democrat was able to complete a race, which included running (26.2 miles), biking (112 miles) as well as swimming (2.4 miles) in about 15 hours. She tweeted a photo of herself crossing the finish line, calling herself Ironman.
Sinema trained for the triathlon for about a year and even woke up at 3 am at times to do so.
What makes her victory even more special is that she didn't know how to swim before she started training.
