Sonja wins St. George 70.3

She's first amateur

Sonja has been training hard all winter, and it's clearly paying off: The Punk Rock Racing athlete not only won her age group at the May 4 half-ironman in St. George, Utah, but she was the first amateur across the finish line. Oh, and she even beat some pros.

The win came five weeks after Sonja reached the podium at Oceanside 70.3. Despite some nutrition issues that sent her to the medical tent, Sonja took third place in her age group and was third amateur at Oceanside. Six weeks later, she'd made a few adjustments and racked up a whole lot of training miles, and she was ready for St. George.

On race day, Sonja finished the swim in 30:57. Once on the bike, she began picking off the leaders and, 56 miles later, she finished in 2:36:49 as the first in her rather competitive 30-34 age group. She held that lead through the 13.1-mile run, which she finished in 1:35:54. Sonja's total time of 4:47:28 put her at the top of the amateur field by more than two full minutes.

St. George was part of Sonja's build-up for her first full Ironman of 2013, which is now 10 days away. Best of luck, Sonja, and congratulations on winning St. George!
