Call them objectives, expeditions, or sufferfests. Hilaree O'Neill's has achieved an impressive list: the first woman to summit both Everest and Lhotse (in 24 hours); first ski descents in the tight couloirs of Baffin Island; ski mountaineering in several high peaks across South America. Read more about this #ForceofNaure in the #BreakingThrough series from @TetonGravity. Link in profile.
Overcoming obstacles is just part of the sport for ultra-runners. #ForceOfNature Mirna Valerio overcomes mud, heat, pain and the negative voices that say she doesn't belong. Watch the full video now (link in bio). Thanks so much to @themirnavator for sharing her story.
