    You are hard core! I cannot even begin to imagine throwing up on the swim and to be kicked and brutalized the whole time. WOW!!!!

  3. Sam says:

    Wow. That’s what’s scary about swimming with others for me – I really like to be in control. You are awesome!

  4. Hillary says:

    Puke and just keep swimming, swimming, swimming. I stand by what I have always said, you are a Wiecked Mama!

    wow – IMCdA is quasi on my bucket list, but I think it will be many years of swim practice before I could handle that.
    Way to keep your cool and stay in your race – and PR!

  6. Great job… it was fun to see you out there and cheer for you. I spilled all over my Trakkers shirt earlier in the day, so likely you didn’t recognize me. My crew was the one on the bike and run with the huge sound set-up. :) You might have wondered how my husband got all your Moab stats! Anyway, you looked amazing, strong, and consistent all day. Way to represent girl!

    Holy cow, you ARE hardcore to puke during the swim and still finish in 1:07! That blows my mind! Were you not freezing when you got out? I’m excited to read the rest!

    I got all excited reading your story, you are definitely an inspiration.

    “It seemed like something that could obviously happen and I puked and swam on.”

    Yes Sonja, you are hard core! Love the report, every IMCD report I have read spoke of similar battles in the water. Congrats!

    Hey Sonja, great job at CdA and congrats on the Kona slot!

    Never tell your strippers to be gentle!
    I heard a story once of a chain reaction swim puke like Stand By Me. I still cringe and laugh. I’d have had a hard time not looking back for carnage. Well done.

  12. Kathy says:

    OMG, I can’t imagine what it was like for the guy BEHIND you when you puked. If someone pukes next year, I hope it’s me :)

    This gives me butterflies just reading. You are way hardcore. I will try to keep up :)
