Hoos doing an Ironman?

Hoos doing an Ironman?

Serena Bolliger (Col ‘07) and Jay Ward (Col ‘07) finished the Ironman 70.3 California in Oceanside on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Ward is already a full Ironman, having completed Ironman Texas in 2012. He will be doing Ironman Tahoe later this year.

The Ironman race is a 2.4-mile swim and a 112-mile bike ride followed by a marathon run (26.2 miles) and takes anywhere from 9 hours (for a pro) and 17 hours (the cutoff) to complete. The Ironman 70.3 is also known as the half Ironman distance, but it is certainly no small feat.
