Sonja qualifies for Kona (again)

She beats her previous best Ironman time

Punk Rock Racing's own Sonja Wieck has done it again: She qualified for the 2012 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.

Sonja has returned from Ironman Cozumel, where she finished in 10:00:33, taking more than eight minutes off her previous best time. She placed second in her age group and qualified to race in Kona.

If you think you just read about Sonja and Kona, you're correct. Just seven weeks before Cozumel, Sonja raced in Kona, finishing in 10:08:44. She recovered in time to go take Cozumel by storm, where she had her fastest-ever swim time of 58:22, then biked 112 miles in 5:30.

Then she went out and ran a 3:27 marathon, which moved her up from fourth place to second.

And with that, Sonja qualified for Kona. She was the ninth-fastest woman, out of 553 finishers. Congratulations, Sonja; we can't wait to see Kona in 2012.
