COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A local "Iron Girl" is at it again this weekend. Annette Garcia was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, but hasn't let that stop her from participating in three triathlons.

Last month she represented Aflac in the Iron Girl competition and after continuing her training, she says she is headed north to compete again, "I personally didn't take a break because I'm going to the next Iron Girl in Syracuse, New York. I just continued to train. I took a day or two off then I went right back to training so I could go to the next event. I'm really looking forward to it and I'm really ready."

Garcia already has plans to bike, run and swim her way through another challenge in September and is making plans to compete all next year as well.
