You have to be extraordinary to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. My guest this week is working her way to a world record for the most ultramarathon races completed in a year.
Technically an ultramarathon is any race longer than a marathon -- 26.2 miles. Usually we say that the 50K (30-ish miles) is where the "real" ultras start.
But Jameelah Abdul-Rahim Mujaahid isn't satisfied to go for just enough. She is running 50 and 100 mile ultras as she goes for the world record.
She has some great stories, and I hope to have her back to tell about her success when she is finished!
