Below is an excerpt:

To hear Sarah A. Ames talk about distance running is to realize that she approaches it differently than you.

She says things like: “Could I still feel my shin a little bit? Sure.” As if any sensation of feeling renders meaningless the fact that her shin was swollen nearly twice its normal size.

Later, she mentions as an aside: “You can get through a marathon without much training.”

So maybe it is no wonder that when asked if she ever worried she would fail in her latest, impossible-sounding challenge, she answered with no hesitation.

“There was never a moment where I doubted myself,” said Ames, a Quarles & Brady LLP transactional partner.
