My feet feel tired just reading about it.

On a side note, met Flyin’ Brian when he doing the Triple Crown in 2001 near Glacier Peak.

She's genuinely a nice person and a BEAST of a hiker. All the best on her future endeavors.

That averages out to an ultramarathon, a 50K a day, every day for eight+ months.  WOW!

I'll add her name to my favorite super athletes of Ann Trason, Courtney Dauwalter, and Secretariat

I go to the gym religiously.... Christmas and Easter

I love sports-bars.  Because they collect all the people I don't want to hang out with and put them in one room.

I am most impressed with her mental toughness, more so than even her physical prowess. Amazing!

I don't know if I'll get all three in my life let alone a single year.

She doesn't pack ultra light either. she's just very strong.

also turned me on to Altras
