Macy Ross, surgical assistant and owner of Diva Headbands, trains yearly for the IronMan, but a bad car accident two years ago prevented her from participating. After months of recuperation, Macy picked up from where she left off and is training again for the IronMan while working the late shift as a nurse and caring for her family. “Life always throws challenges when you least expect them.
