A promise 22 years in the making has finally been fulfilled.

When Julie Lithco Ellis was 16 years old, she promised her father Norman Lithco she would go skydiving, run a Boston Marathon and compete in a Ironman Triathlon. On Nov. 1 2008, the 38-year-old Lodi native completed her vow, capping off the three-part pledge with the Ironman Florida at Panama City Beach.
