Celebrating 5 years of Ironman participation

Celebrity Triathletes

2 Comments

While most attention is on the Olympics right now, I have to admit the headline “Alanis Morisette is a triathlete” caught my attention most in USAT’s e-newsletter today.

I wonder what other celebrity triathletes are out there…it seems everyone is running marathons (Lance, Oprah, Katie Holmes), but have any celebs done an Ironman?
