There is something about taking an early and commanding lead in a highly-competitive field, staying composed while well ahead of course-record pace, and ultimately crushing one of the hardest races in the world, that makes us think anything is possible.
In other words, Bosio’s 22:37:26 at UTMB—a course record by nearly two hours—was just plain inspiring.

- Ellie Greenwood and Timothy Olson crushing the women’s and men’s course records at Western States, 2012; both their records still stand.
