I received this heads up in an email:
This weekend the Hawaii Ironman Champion, Michellie Jones, will be coming to Bend Bike N Sport to give a talk and take questions about her life as a professional triathlete. The event is at 7:00 pm this Saturday at the shop. Full details and a photo are on our website (www.bendbikensport.com) or talk to Beverly at the shop 322-8814. Thanks.
There aren’t too many people who can complete the Ironman, so I imagine this would be an interesting evening whether you were into sports/biking or not. They have a further bit about Jones on their page:
Michellie Jones has been on the professional triathlon circuit for more than 20 years. She’s won more championships, races and accolades than any other athlete, traveling the globe with husband Pete Coulson as her manager, coach and mentor…and they are here for the first time ever in Central Oregon at Bend Bike ‘n Sport.
