What's the best way to prove that you're an iron girl from Texas? It's certainly not an appearance on CBS' Rock Star: Supernova, the show on which three Texas femmes are currently embarrassing themselves for the likes of ex-rockers such as Tommy Lee and Jason Newsted. Flailing around in tacky outfits while singing bad rock covers is nothing. Now, swimming 500 meters and then immediately completing a 20K bike ride and a 5K run? That's a lot tougher, and that's exactly what the women who compete in Sunday's Iron Girl Texas Triathlon will do. After Saturday's all-day expo at the Dallas Marriott Las Colinas, 223 W. Las Colinas Blvd., sign-in for the triathlon begins the following morning at 6:30 a.m., and heats begin running at 8 a.m. Ages 14 and up are welcome. Registration begins at $85. Call 1-877-719-4957.
Sun., July 23, 8 p.m.
