Woman runs record 150 marathons in 150 days

SunnyLv 0Mar 10

It's hard to run the 42 km of a marathon. This seems easy for a 32-year-old Australian runner. She just ran one every day for 150 days. She ran 6,300 km across Australia for over five months. She easily beat the old world record of 106 marathons. The woman did not qualify for the Olympics, so she ran the marathons instead.

The woman broke the record to raise awareness of animals in danger. Many animals in Australia are dying out. She raised $70,000 for a wildlife charity. The marathons were very hard, but she knew she could finish. She was "covered in sweat and flies, and everything ached". She kept giving herself lots of tiny goals.
