There is a good chance you’ve seen Paula Roberson running in Wichita Falls. 

In April she went to Galveston for her first Ironman 70.3. A 70.3 includes 56 miles on a bike, a 13.1 mile run and a 1.2 mile swim. 

Not only did she finish, she qualified for the Ironman World Championships which take place in South Africa on September 1st. 

If you’d like to help with her trip to South Africa you can do so by donating to a Go Fund Me page which has been set up to help with airfare, lodging and shipping her athletic gear.
