From Feb. 19 – March 7, the ACU Kinesiology Club and the Student Recreation and Wellness Center will be hosting an Ironman competition. In support of their work,  librarians Shan (Pamplin ‘86) Martinez and Karen (Nelson ‘65)  Hendrick created an exhibit that features information about the three category competition. Participants will traverse 140 miles, swimming 2.4 miles, running 26.2 miles and biking 112 miles. The exhibit also spotlights books that provide helpful wellness tips.  Check out  Breakthrough Swimming by Cecil Colwin, Cycling Texas by Ann Baird, and The Complete Book of Running by Amby Burfoot.

Each participant will earn a “Finisher’s Medal” if they complete the challenges by March 7. To learn more about the Ironman competition or to register, contact Deonna Shake ( or Kyle Pinson (
