Award Winning Actress Katherine Kelly Lang plays the character Brooke Logan from the "Bold and the Beautiful" on CBS Television; she is on Hawaii Island in Kona this morning. Not for a vacation -- she's competing in the Ironman Triathlon World Championship..
She's competed in half Ironman competitions around the world, but this will be her first full one; Katherine joined us by phone on Sunrise.
Among the questions: You are a successful actress, just filmed in Italy in May, very busy; what would make you want to do a Triathlon? What charities are you supporting while you are in Kona? Have you had time to train on Hawaii Island?
We've been seeing over the past year that Lang has been training by doing a lot of half-triathlon events in Abu Dhabi, Florida, Italy, Australia, Austria and more but this will be her first full triathlon AND her first Ironman Triathlon World Championship.
Her trainer is a giant amongst triathletes; 7 time World Championship winner David Scott. The Ironman Triathlon World Championship start line is at the pier in Kailua-Kona, Hawai'i this Saturday October 10, 2015.
