Old Saybrook, CT (I-Newswire) August 11, 2012 - Pursuit Athletic Performance triathlete Lisbeth Kenyon was third woman overall at the Norseman Xtreme Triathlon held in Eidfjord, Norway.

Norseman Xtreme features a total of 5,000 meters of ascent.

The 26.2 mile run finishes on the Gaustatoppen mountain top at 1,850 meters above sea level.
Said Lisbeth, “It was the hardest race I have ever done. I am very proud to have finished it. There is nothing in the area where I live that could have prepared me physically for Norseman, so the training Coach Al Lyman designed for me was the absolutely best approach to get me ready.”
“This is a landmark day for me as a coach,” said Al Lyman, Pursuit Athletic Performance co-founder, and acclaimed coach. “Lisbeth’s performance, and her ability to repeat these amazing results year after year at this stage of her career, is a complete affirmation of everything I have tried to share with the endurance world for a very long time.
