Sarah Reinertsen’s Ironman finished unfinished business was recently featured in an article celebrating Ironman’s upcoming 40th anniversary.
“Becoming an IRONMAN truly changed my life, and continues to touch so many things in my life even after all these years. It’s helped me find strength and confidence not just in sport, but in all areas. I’ve also made friends through IRONMAN that have come to seem like family.”, said Reinertsen
You can watch a video on the excruciating ups and downs of Sarah competing in the Ironman two years in a row. The first year not finishing and the second year returning to finish unfinished business by completing the Ironman and becoming the first female ATK amputee to cross an IRONMAN finish line.
Sarah was featured on News 4 Tucson KVOA-TV story on the 2018 National Conference of the Amputee Coalition in Tuscon this year.
Sarah shares her inspirational story and demonstrated a new Nike FlyEase shoe that she helped design which has a zipper on the heel to make it easier to take on and off.
Watch the interview:
I attended this year’s National Amputee Coalition Conference in Tucson and can be seen here coaching at the Össur running and mobility clinic.
A photo of me and my friend Alexandra Capellini who I had the honor of coaching the Össur running & mobility clinic at the Amputee Coalition conference last weekend in Arizona. Alexandra received her Össur FlexRun foot through a grant from the California Challenged Athletes Foundation. Now she’s ready to run through the streets of NYC!
