Our team here at Allen Orthodontics is the best, and we like to brag about one another’s accomplishments all the time. We wanted to spotlight Jackie, our scheduling coordinator, this month for her amazing accomplishment: completing the Iron Man Triathlon, and coming in 9th place!
Jackie has competed in the Iron Man Triathlons before, but this one held on April 9th in Oceanside was incredible. The Oceanside 70.3 is a grueling race: 1.5 mile swim in Oceanside Harbor, followed by 56 miles on bike through Camp Pendleton, and then a 13 mile run along the coast through Carlsbad area. Jackie completed all of that in 5 hours in 20 minutes. Yes, you read that right!
All of that isn’t without hard work: Jackie trained for the Iron Man for 5 months. She’s competing in a full triathalon, so DOUBLE all of that, in July in Napa Valley. In the meantime, something else that makes Jackie so awesome is that she’s trying to get our whole staff healthier and fit – we appreciate her efforts so much, and healthy food is tastier than anyone gives it credit for!
Great job Jackie, we’re so proud to have you on the Allen Orthodontics Team!
