Joan completed Ironman Hawaii 3 times, Ironman New Zealand, and the Great Floridian triathlon 3 times. Each race consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, and 26.2 mile run.
In 1993, Joan and her husband Matt Mahoney were married at the finish line of the Great Floridian after both completed the race.
Joan and Matt celebrate their anniversary each year by competing as a relay team, the Iron Couple. Below is Joan on the 112 mile bike course.
