After 3 days, she's almost 100 miles ahead of 2nd place.

From Facebook:

"Camille Herron (US), holder of many women’s world records, including the 100-mile world record (12:41:11), is running for six days in La Quinta, CA, on a 2.5 loop course. She has already smashed the women’s 300-mile world record by more than 10 hours, with 59:54:28, and she demolished the women’s 72-hour world record by more than 27 miles, with at least 341 miles (men’s record is 367). Can she hold on and beat the women’s six-day world record of 549 miles? The men’s world six-day record is 644 miles, held by Yiannis Kouros (GR). She had never run further than 270.5 miles before."

That's just over 900 km. She broke the 6-day women's record by 11 miles. It had stood for 34 years. She broke other records along the way too. Amazing runner!

It was a hard event to follow. I felt very old at times trying to cut through all the "Influencer" posts/videos. But it was really impressive following her progress. Made me think about trying a 24 hour event where she's competing just to watch her go.

And then we could watch *you* go! :)

I followed it by following running reporters/analysts who were at least one step removed from the event. Kind of strange.
