Pitt was caught in a fast moving bushfire in 2011 while she was competing in an Ultra Marathon in Western Australia.
Suffering burns to 65 per cent of her body, Pitt was determined to overcome the odds and and one day become an IRONMAN.
'When I was in the hospital I was told that I’d never run again. It was like a light was switched on in my head. I thought "I’ll show you, I’m going to do an IRONMAN one day,"' she said.
‘It was the best motivation. My mum and my partner, Michael, would come into my hospital room each morning and say ‘come on, get up, it’s time to get training for your IRONMAN’ and I’d get up and get stuck in.’
