CORNWALL — A little motion picture called “Iron Man 3” opened this past weekend.

Addison County has its own Ironman, whom you won’t be able to find at the movie theaters. This Ironman can swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 and then run a full, 26.2-mile marathon in one day — then go home and put her three kids to bed while holding down a full-time administrative job.

And she does it without a metal suit or computer-generated imagery.
