Iron nuns and strength coaches

This Olympic gold medalist has changed his focus from speed to God, and now shares his faith with aspiring runners. After winning Olympic gold in 1996, he had an emptiness in his life that only Christ could fill.

Iron nun
Thus nearly 80-year-old nun from Spokane Wash. has made a habit (couldn’t resist) of running, and biking and swimming. She’s a triathlete and has participated in more than 320 triathlons — 40 of which were Ironman class events consisting of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike ride and a 26-mile run. Here’s what the running nun had to say about her sport in this ABC News story: “Who says I can’t be in the church and doing God’s work out everywhere I go,” she said. “There is no limit, no boundaries to when and where you can commune with God. It doesn’t have to be in church all the time.”  Here’s the Wikipedia profile on the nun and this is a 10-minute story from Youtube that is very well done, although I don’t buy in 100 percent on some of the good sister’s theology, but who’s theology do I buy in on 100 percent.
