I had the privilege to meet and interview an extraordinary woman in New York. Sister Madonna was 78 at the time of the interview. As a catholic nun from Spokane, Washington, she was not only dedicating her life to her religious life but also made history in the running scene. At 52 she ran her first race, soon after she completed a marathon in less than 3 1/2 hours. Since then she has participated in 20 Hawaiian Ironman races and 300 Triathlons throughout the world. At 78 she was by far the fastest in her age category. The whole interview lasted for 42 minutes. I tried to condense the highlights into this 13-minute version. A fascinating episode of the interview series LIFE Voices!
