This past weekend first year brand student Laura Hufschmidt competed in Ironman Wisconsin. For those unaware, the Ironman is a grueling 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike ride, and concludes with a full marathon. After six months of training and hundreds of hours in the pool, on the bike, and in her running shoes, Laura's goals were to finish and enjoy herself. With a support team of students from the Center cheering her on throughout the day, Laura finished her race where she started - at the Monona Terrace, 13 1/2 hours after starting her swim. While this was Laura's first Ironman, perhaps the more impressive feat was getting herself to the Accounting review session the following day. Congratulations Laura - job well done!
