The Woman Who Rocked the Ironman


When she shared her favorite playlist with Women’s Adventure, Mirinda Carfrae told us she would rock the 2010 Kona Ironman. And she stayed true to her word. Plus, her winning 8:58 finish is the fourth fastest in Ironman history.

She ran a 2:53 marathon, the fastest ever run by a woman at the Kona—even faster than her 2:56:51 record time last year. In 2009, she finished second, nearly 20 minutes behind Chrissie Wellington. But this year, she crossed the line eight minutes ahead of second place Caroline Steffen.
