The word triathlon is synonymous with crazy. It's true. You do have to be a little crazy to want to suffer for recreation. But along with the crazy, there are hopes, dreams, and above all, passion.
Maid of Iron is a short documentary that tells the lives of three vastly different but equally strong female triathletes. Ashley Robota is the talented amateur who knows she can go for in the sport...as long as she can balance her intense training schedule with regular life. Allysa Seely was told she would never walk again but is currently one of the world's top paratriathletes. And Linsey Corbin is the professional who turned her love of triathlon into a career.
Come for the hundred mile bike rides and 6 am wake up calls, stay because these "maids" kick major ass.
As a girl, I've always felt insecure about my body. I thought I was the only person making harsh remarks to myself in the mirror, but it turns out I am not alone(thank goodness because I was starting to feel like the only crazy one).
My friend Brian Wise and I produced a story on mirrors and why they produce such insecurity.
Allysa Seely is a world class paratriathlete. This is the story of how she fought against Chiari Malformation and Basilar Invagination to return to triathlon, after being told multiple times she would never walk again.
Just because The East Valley Institute of Technology in Mesa is a Vocational school doesn't mean it's a school for bad kids, lazy kids, or dumb kids. With a staff passionate about what they teach and students eager to learn, EVIT is a school for all kids.
