Lisa Roberts is on a roll! 

After capturing her first career overall victory in the full distance at Challenge Madrid earlier this year, Lisa followed that up with a big win at Ironman Louisville, and after this weekend, she can add "two-time Ironman Champion" to her resume with her amazing comeback victory at Ironman Cozumel.

Grabbing her third victory of the year would not be easy. Coming off the bike, Lisa had her work cut out for her with a 25+ minute deficit to first place. With grit and tenacity, she worked her way through the field, and with a race best marathon (2:59:20) she captured the title over Canadian, Kirsty Jahn (2nd) and German, Sonja Tajsich (3rd).

After several years of finding herself runner up, Lisa has finally had the season she's been working so hard for. We are proud to have been along for the ride.

Congrats Lisa.
