Book Report: "The Extra Mile...

One Woman's Personal Journey to Ultrarunning Greatness" by Pam Reed

Memoir of Pam Reed, the first woman to outright win the Badwater Ultramarathon, the 123 mile race through Death Valley. She won it twice and has won many other races throughout her career. She tells of her childhood and her long battle with anorexia and of her personal life and family. It's a fairly quick read, interesting, but some times reads a little to "chatty", going off on a tangent which you think, "Why was that in there?" Overall, worth the time if you are a running fan or thinking about taking the plunge into the ultra world.
