HTIC’s CP Instructor, Rosalie Paradise, successfully completed the 35th Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona on the big island of Hawaii on October 12, 2013.

The Ironman World Championship is one of triathlons most iconic events, and it gives athletes the chance to compete on the world stage. This year, over 2,000 athletes from all over the world took on the challenge.

The Ironman World Championship begins with a 2.4 mile (3.8 km) swim in Kailua Bay, followed by a 112 mile (180 km) bike ride battling the wind and heat off the black lava fields along the Queen Ka’ahumanu Highway, and finally ends in a 26.2 (42.2 km) mile run in the intense heat humidity.

“The most difficult part was balancing work with months of training to make it to the start line. The race itself was tough but an amazing experience I’ll never forget. There’s nothing in the world that compares to crossing the finish line,” said Rose.

Rose feels that if you really have the desire to reach a goal, you should never give up and always believe in the Ironman mantra, “ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!”
