Cherie Gruenfeld, Boingo’s official butt-kicker, set the bar high at the 2015 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, not just for herself, but others that will follow. At 71 years young, she made history as she set a new course record for her age group, the third time Cherie has laid down a course record in Kona. It was also her 13th win for her age group at IRONMAN. It’s no wonder that USA Triathlon (USAT) awarded Cherie the title of Grandmaster of the Year for 2015.

Gary Arndt’s favorite travel experiences include getting tattooed in Rarotonga, zip lining in Puerto Rico, swimming with whale sharks in Western Australia and photographing political protests in Bangkok. Since he’s on a never-ending adventure, Arndt continues to add to this list.
