Downtown stylist Karen Patterson just completed an ULTRA-marathon, which consists of running a staggering distance of 50 MILES…yes, we said miles. Karen, who has been running competitively for nearly her entire life, grew bored of conventional marathons (don’t we all?!) and participated in the Carl Touchstone Mississippi Trail Run in March…yes, we said trail run.
Not ONLY did she run a distance of 50 miles, on trail through rough terrain (in a torrential downpour, no less), she also finished FIRST. I can’t even run to the end of my street. Karen’s time?
Needless to say, we are extremely proud (and frankly, completely awestruck) of Karen’s achievement. Way to go, Karen!!
