Sheila Patricia Hiestand

About me

As a mom of three teenagers and active triathlete, you can imagine I lead a pretty busy life.  I am blessed to have a great husband and wonderful family that supports all I do, and they are always there to help out. 


 


For those of you who know me, you know Ironman has changed my life!  Training for triathlons took me from ex-college-athlete to fit mom.  More importantly, through Ironman I have had the privilege of working with some of the best volunteers in Louisville!  Every aid station on the 140.3 mile race is covered by folks from a local non-profit, church or charity who are volunterering their time in the sun and heat not just to raise money for their causes, but to help people who are struggling to achieve their lifetime dream!  These groups cheer us on, give us water when we are dehydrated, food when we are seeing double, and emotional support every step of the way.  I have been honored to be a volunteer and help raise money through The Ironman Foundation for my church, Our Lady of Lourdes, and thrilled to be a competitor who has been supported by my family and fellow parishioners.  This year I am competing not just to finish, but to give back to my community.    This year I don't compete for Sheila -- I Tri for Louisville, the City I Love!
