During 2020, we saw the rise of FKT attempts while so many races had been cancelled and postponed due to the pandemic.
The 2021 FKT season is off to a blistering start with the Death Valley N-S standard route crossing (off-trail) FKT being taken by Sarah Estrella, a local runner from Davis.
Sarah joined us for episode 30 to talk about this this multi-day challenge in the famed Death Valley and what it took to take it on and get it done. Along the way, we also learned about her mental and physical toughness starting from a young age, some of the epic challenges she took on even before this FKT attempt, and much more. Tune in for another inspiring episode!
