Bridget Schultz is an Ironman!

Congratulations to Bridget Schultz, who completed her first Ironman triathlon in Lake Placid in July, 2018.  An Ironman includes a consecutive 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run.  Despite tough weather conditions, including high winds and rain, Bridget completed the triathlon with a time of 13:33:10, and placed third in her age group in the swim.  This year marked the twentieth anniversary of the Lake Placid Ironman.  2,300 competitors began the race, with 2,092 finishers, of which 569 were female. All finishers are greeted at the finish line by longtime Ironman event announcer, Mike Reilly, who says each name for the crowd and announces, “You are an Ironman!”
