Some years ago now, Angela Schatz developed a keen interest in endurance racing and continued to push herself past the boundaries of what most would consider physically or mentally possible. Triathlons became her passion, and she has now finished in 6 Ironman-distance events (2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike, and a 26.2 mile run). Besides triathlons, she has also competed in and finished multiple long distance running events: marathons, 50 milers, a 100K, and most recently a 100 mile ultra run. She also loves being a mom to Elise, and has also devoted significant time as a county court-appointed special advocate for an underprivileged foster child. She resides in Irvine, California.
