Tonight at 8:11 pm she started for the last time this loop of infinity, tonight at 8:11 pm she started to write a new page of history, in less than 12hr she will become the first woman in the world to complete this crazy race. It is now a formality, less than 44km to go to succeed, enough time to take a break if necessary. Despite the sleep deprivation for so long she is on fire and adrenaline on the ceiling. She wanted it and she got there and she proves again that we have the right to dream big and that no matter the size of the challenge there is a solution to make it happen.
For those who did not really know the event here is what it looks like, At 8:08 on May 24 she took the start for the third time in as many years of what is one of the most difficult races in the world, Infinitus race in the Green mountains in Vermont, an 888km trail race with a time limit of 240hrs, which represents 88km per day to round in circles on 2 loop, 1 of 11km and one of 33km, which represents the form of an eight or if you like better, the symbol of infinity.
No woman had yet managed to get closer to the finish line. Last year she had run the 10 days but had missed distance, she had finished with some 730km.
As crazy as it may seem she decided to go back this year, to close the book once and for all. Better train and better prepare ... But can we really get ready for this kind of thing ... can we really train to spend 10 days sleeping less than 6hrs and to run over 18, to eat more than 70,000 calories, to leave no time to his body to recover and succeed in having so much control over his head that even after more than 9 days we still manage to move forward ... we must believe that yes!
