Sara Gross goes for the Ironman Double!

Last week, Mercury Rising Triathlon head coach and professional triathlete, Sara Gross raced Ironman Arizona and rocketed to an impressive 8th place finish in a deep women's field that saw two women dip under the 9 hour mark.

Sara's splits were:

Swim: 54:09
Bike: 5:11:34
Run: 3:07:52

Even more impressive is that Sara had the THIRD FASTEST marathon split out of the entire pro women field. The only two women who ran faster, were the two women who went under 9 hours...

Not too bad for a gal who gave birth a year ago, eh?

She makes it look so easy -- this is what a 3:07 IM run looks like.

And now, 7 days later, Sara has decided to take on the additional challenge of racing another Ironman race -- in Cozumel, Mexico.

That's right -- she is going for some IM double trouble action!

Check out tomorrow (Sunday, Nov. 27, 2011) to track and virtually cheer for Sara as she goes for it again!!

Go Sara go!!!!
