From The Extra Mile: One Woman’s Personal Journey to Ultrarunning Greatness by Pam Reed

“Come to think of it, a woman winning at Badwater was probably a very good thing for that race. It got the race a lot more attention than it had had before. Chris Kostman said that the third year I ran, after two wins, the field was the deepest they’d ever had. I’ll bet some of those runners underestimated the difficulty of the race. They probably thought, ‘Man, if a girl can win it, it can’t be that tough.'"
