Kyrsten Sinema finishes another race: Ironman 70.3 World Championship in France
The run for House and Senate isn't the only race where Sinema has crossed the finish line

Senator Kyrsten Sinema competed in the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France on Saturday.

Kyrsten Sinema crossed the finish line like a boss at the Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France, this past weekend - and she has the triumphant photo to prove it.

The Democratic senator's Instagram post Thursday makes the rest of us mortals (i.e. me) exhausted just looking at it - she's throwing up a high-five after competing for seven hours. (The only thing I can do for seven hours is sleep.)

In less than 12 hours and halfway around the globe, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema will take a stab at being the world’s fastest half Ironman athlete in this weekend's world championship in France.

Sinema, a Democrat from Arizona, posted two photos to her Instagram story on Friday hinting at her participation in this year’s Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice, France. In one photo Sinema is surrounded by a group of females decked out in bright gear accompanied by the caption “Betty Squad” — a nod to her hot pink athletic couture designed by Betty Designs, an apparel company that makes “badasses feel beautiful,” according to Instagram.
