Sarah's amazing race

Triathlete Sarah Reinertson, 31, a member of St. Peter by the Sea Lutheran Church, San Diego, competes to win $1 million on The Amazing Race 10 (CBS, Sundays). Her teammate, Peter Harsch, is a triathlete and clinical prosthetist. Reinertson, the first female athlete with an artificial leg to complete the Hawaii Ironman Triathlon, said her faith plays an important role in her athletic achievements. “My upbringing in the church has guided me, kept me focused and kept me doing what is right,” she said. “You do not get where you are going all by yourself.”
