Overview

One year after her astonishing victory at the Badwater Ultramarathon, Pam Reed again made distance-running history when she braved the hottest weather in years-125 degrees-to successfully defend her title. How does this 100-pound mother and stepmother of five muster the endurance and courage for the 28-hour climb from the hottest desert floor on Earth to the shadow of the continental United States' highest point?

In The Extra Mile, we watch this ultramarathon champion seek balance in her life as a wife, mother, athlete, and entrepreneur. With astonishing candor, Reed tells of her 15-year battle with anorexia. And she helps us to understand her passion for ultrarunning-to discover how far the human body can be pushed.
