Nuns don't normally make the news. Sister Madonna Buder
is not like most nuns. Well-known in the fitness community as the "Iron Nun," the 82-year-old Missouri native has completed more than 325 triathlons
, including 45 Ironman distances. In fact, at the 2006 Hawaii Iron Man, she became the oldest woman to ever complete the race, finishing with a time of 16:59:03.
In October of 2011, she completed yet another Ironman in under 17 hours. We can't wait to see what 2012 brings for this inspirational female athlete!
