Next week, from July 23th to July 25th, 90 people—including 18 women—will start a race in Death Valley, Calif., that will end 135 miles later high up on Mt. Whitney. This is the Kiehl’s Badwater Ultramarathon. If you have never rented the movie “Running on the Sun,” I can’t recommend it enough. It is a very well crafted documentary about this race and some of the people who come back to face this daunting challenge year after year.
Today’s video is an interview with a woman who is running this race for the second time. Tune in to learn what really motivates these runners to spend 23-60 hours of running through hell.
