    DescriptionOne year after her astonishing victory at the Badwater Ultra marathon, Pam Reed again made distance running history when she braved the hottest weather in years, 135 degrees, to successfully defend her title. How does this 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' tallest point? In "The Extra Mile", we watch this ultra marathon champion seek balance in her life as a wife, mother, athlete, and entrepreneur. With astonishing candour, Reed tells of her 15-year battle with anorexia. And she helps us understand her passion for ultra running - to discover how far the human body can be pushed. Reed's book will be an inspiration to women everywhere.
