"There's Only A Start, A Finish And A Struggle In Between"

A woman sets a new speed record for mountain biking the Kokopelli Trail near Moab, UT - 142 miles in 13.5 hours. "Two hours into her ride, Rebecca crashed hard and dislocated the index finger on her left hand. She continued riding for another 11 hours with that pain. And to make matters worse, as she rode through the night, her headlamp died, leaving her to ride in darkness from 4:00 AM to about 6:00 AM. Despite these difficulties she still managed to set the new record anyway."

Her video below is full of wonderful quotes such as "There's only a start, a finish and a struggle in between." And, "It's too easy to slack and get lazy when the pain comes." 

Because it's a Red Bull video, it is great to watch.
