#HumansOfMKTG | Julie Zdziarski Takes FIRST at Half Ironman in San Diego

MKTG Team Member Julie Zdziarski, the Colorado-based long-standing employee and Vice President at SRi, the sports and entertainment research and measurement analytics company that’s part of MKTG, competed in the Ironman Superfrog 70.3 in San Diego, California last weekend. The race consisted of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike portion, and 13.2 mile run on SAND. It is the oldest half ironman in the country, designed originally for Navy Seal training.

Julie ended up finishing in FIRST PLACE in her age group (45-49) earning a spot to compete in the 70.3 World Championships in 2018 in South Africa.  She even beat ALL of the 40-44 ladies as well. What a total rock star we have in our midst!

In regards to taking part in such a demanding sport, Julie says, “Racing like this makes me happy, and takes me completely out of my comfort zone, which is awesome – especially as we age.  I’m turning 50 next year so I definitely have to do something extra epic!”

Well, as far as we’re concerned, competing in the 70.3 World Championship in South Africa is pretty darn epic. Can we come cheer you on?

Congrats, Julie!
