Lucy Danziger is in Better Shape Than You

Self’s editor-in-chief, Lucy Danziger, makes us all look bad. She just completed her third Ironman, and not only that, shaved 30 minutes of her personal best time. An Ironman consists of swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 and then — yes and then — running a marathon.

Congrats to Danziger. Especially for being able to swim in the Hudson without vomiting. “The swim was easy,” she told WWD. “There was no sign of any kind of ugliness in the water.”

Sure there wasn’t.
