This inspirational woman was told she may never run again after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in September 2011, and suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body. Forget running, she was lucky to be alive.
In 13hrs 24mins 42secs @turiapitt completed her first Ironman yesterday.
She is an extremely passionate humanitarian and by participating at #IMOZ, Turia was raising money for Interplast Australia and New Zealand. They provide reconstructive surgery to people who desperately need it in developing countries - head to her instagram page to see how you can donate.
From all of us at Witsup and the extended triathlon family - HUGE congrats on becoming an Ironman yesterday and for all the greatness you bring to this world.
