On July 4, 2004, Beth James and her three kids were driving home from a gathering when their vehicle was struck by two cars that were drag racing through the streets. Beth’s youngest daughter Liza ended up with severe brain damage from the crash. Being a long-time runner and triathlete, Beth and Liza created Team Liza and, after finishing Ironman Wisconsin last fall, the two are in Kona to try and become the first mother/daughter duo to finish the Ironman World Championship.
