Called the Battlefrog race, it is an extreme challenge, designed for adults. This is Milla Star Bizzotto, and she's only 9-years-old, but she's probably fitter than you.
Designed by a Navy Seal, it consists of a 5-mile run with 25 obstacles and a swimming portion that is 30 miles long.
Milla completed the race, and is the only person under 18 to do so.
She completed the race with the help of her father. Organizers allowed her to participate so long as her dad stayed by her side.
To prepare for the race, she trained five days a week, three hours a day for months.
Check out the video of her training.
She has a GoFundMe page to help her cover the cost of her equipment and training. This is her statement:
My name is Milla Star Bizzotto, I’m 9 years old.
I don’t spend all day playing videogames.
I have a mission.
I obstacle course race with a purpose.
I DON’T RUN THE KIDS COURSE!
I want to inspire a generation. #InspirationForTheIPadGeneration
I want to inspire kids to eat healthy and get outside and play.
I want kids to stand up to bullies.
I was bullied at school, kids get bullied all the time.
I no longer get bullied, now #IAmTheAntiBully!
We are all made in different shapes and sizes, we need to love our bodies! #LoveYourBody.
Damn kids these days. Not only are they building stuff to save the world, they are damn inspiring too.
If you leave home for an office each day, you’re going to need to take a lot of items with you; a laptop, files, lunch, phone and accessories, makeup, wallet, even a spare set of clothes if you’re heading out to a bar or the gym when you’re done. So, a roomy work bag is a necessity. That work bag doesn’t have to be a standard leather briefcase, though. You don’t have to be the same as everyone else – these gorgeous alternatives will give you a fashion edge, as well as being perfectly practical. Read more
If you’re a regular gym user, you won’t have failed to notice how most – if not all – of the other people working out around you are listening to music. You probably do it too. What is it about music, though that makes a work out so much more palatable? What does it do to our brains – and our bodies – to help us push through? Read more
When I watched Field of Dreams, the quote I left that movie with was "If you build it they will come." Once the baseball field was built, the ghosts found it. When the World Wide Web was new, that was fairly true. Since the mid-1990's, there has been tremendous and explosive growth in the web. Consider for a moment: there are an estimated 612 million websites in the world, but only 185 million websites are active according to TechLogon.com. Read more
