Rebecca Roehm is no stranger to sufferfests as she was the only Becoming Ultra runner to run her first ultra as a 50 miler at the Voyageur 50 in Minnesota a few years back. Since then she has done a 100k, a 100 miler, and just last week she took on the Vol State run across the state of Tennessee. She covered 314 miles in 7 days and so we had to have a chat while it was still fresh and while she was easy to get ahold of recoverng from the effort. Enjoy the show!
To say that Katie has been through the ringer in the last few weeks is about right. Running setbacks and illness got her down but she is making a strong comeback.
