Thanks for the video, @erikafishhh!!
MY FAMILY WATCHING ME TRY TO GET AROUND THE HOUSE THE DAY AFTER MY FIRST MARATHON
Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.
I was telling some of my students last night (especially the ones somehow even smaller than I am, including two very badass ladies) to look this performance up cuz it is legit inspiring.
There were like FOUR places where her height required her to JUMP when taller competitors could REACH. So cool.
I just watched this last night, and she is incredible. 5’ tall, 100# flat and she beasts through the course even making it up the ramp in one run. She’s positively epic. Makes me want to look into freerunning clubs around here.
This is mad! The only thing I’d definitely screw up is the shifting the pole pull-up looking bit.
so unbelievably badass. Entire video here - very much worth the watch
Runners from RunKeeper are going to race an MBTA Green Line train to prove once and for all which mode of transportation is the fastest.
It seems great minds think alike :)
Our super speedy participants from the Faster Than The T 5k in the spring of this year have proven that traveling on foot really is faster than the green line! (And earned this super sweet medal while doing it)
Arlington Station to Packards Corner Station is 2.9 miles and takes the green line - without traffic or delays - 23:00 minutes to cover the distance. Our fastest runner finished 3.1 miles in 22:00 minutes.
