The Arizona Democrat flexed more than her political muscle on Sunday to become the first member of Congress to complete an Ironman competition.
The sweat-inducing race includes a 2.4-mile swim and a 112-mile bike ride, followed by a full marathon — a 26.2-mile run. ITK is exhausted just from writing about it.
Sinema, a 37-year-old avid runner and athlete, completed the whirlwind workout in 15 hours, 12 minutes and 34 seconds, her office tells us.
The congresswoman, who ran on behalf of a charitable foundation, did get support from some of her colleagues in Congress. Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.) wished her good luck and tweeted:
Good luck in the Arizona Ironman today @RepSinema! I'll be cheering from the couch...--JPK— Rep. Joe Kennedy III (@RepJoeKennedy) November 17, 2013
