"They say that if you can do an ironman, you can do anything"....Our own Karma Edwards participated in her 6th ironman race. Karma dedicated her race this year to the training partners who were unable to endure the punishment and also for a friend who lost his life a few weeks before, in Jacksonville, while training for what would have been his first ironman. Congrats to Karma for finishing such a test of strength, perserverance and endurance.
