Expedition Utah - Day 6 Video

The day started early with a difficult decision to have Emma sit out the run due to severe Achilles tendonitis and a swollen ankle. She’s an extremely strong young woman and didn’t want to rest, but it was a smart medical decision. 

Today’s run was supposed to be 40k, but shortly after starting the remaining three Ambassadors decided to attempt breaking the i2P single-day run record (51K). The rest of the day was focused as the Ambassadors narrowed in on the distance, while also managing to live video conference with students at lunch. A member of the Education team, Peter, joined the pace crew and ran his first ever marathon which spurred the Ambassadors on to finish strong with a huge sense of accomplishment over breaking the i2P record and joining the ultra-marathon world at 52K. 

After a quick celebration, they settled in for a discussion with Dr. Allan about the Rise of the Mammals. After dinner the cowboys and Ray practiced their ‘roping’ skills keeping the entire camp in stitches!
