Most days, we're pleased if we get out of bed on time, do a decent job at work and clock out in time to flail on the treadmill for a half-hour — all the while hoping that the attractive, fit people surrounding us don't notice as we gradually decrease the speed setting. So we're hella impressed with Overland Park triathlete Kelly Dippold. The 50-year-old not only qualified for the Triathlon World Championships in New Zealand last October but also went and won her age bracket. Dippold, who works for Lockton Companies, claimed the title (and the envy of everyone who dons old 5k T-shirts for their jogs) with a time of 2 hours, 28 minutes, 21 seconds. Yeah, that's a pretty impressive time to complete a 1,500-meter swim, a 40-kilometer bicycle ride and a 10-kilometer run. She makes us all look like slow-moving bums.
