Kennett Run Race Director J.J. Simon and his wife, Jacqui, competed in the Ironman Florida in Haines City, Fla. on Nov. 4. The annual event was originally scheduled for Panama Beach on the state's Gulf Coast, but was moved to Haines City after the Gulf area was impacted by the effects of Hurricane Michael.

The Simons completed the three segments of the triathlon: a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile cycle and a 26.2-mile full marathon, for a total of 140.6 miles covered.
