At 48 yrs old Molly entered her first marathon. 4 weeks into training she injured her foot and was told that she was too old to be running. Taking her own advice, Molly corrected her training, mailed her finish-line picture to the doctor who told her she was old, and decided to challenge herself. As a novice runner, she entered the Rio Del Lago 100-mile Endurance Race. Traversing 100 miles non-stop through northern California, she discovered her love of endurance running, her youthful mind and her adventurous spirit.
In the past 7 years, Molly has run over 45 ultramarathons.
Molly is the first American woman to attempt and complete La Ultra-The High ultra-marathon, a 138-mile non-stop footrace in the Himalayas. La Ultra begins at 14,000 feet, with climbs to near 18,000 feet over two passes. The race culminates in the Morey Plains on the border between China and Pakistan. Even though the India Government said it was physically impossible to complete the distance, Molly completed the race August 13, 2011.
Molly has been featured among the “Women Who Move” in Women’s Running magazine; on Adventure Woman Radio, Nevada Public Radio KNPR, The Christian Science Monitor; and in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Founder and owner of Desert Sky Adventures, Molly encourages others to walk and run for their health. She also speaks to audiences across the country.

On March 31, 1929 seventy seven men began an epic 3,554 mile footrace from New York to Los Angeles punishing their bodies an average of 46 miles for 78 days over mostly unpaved roads in hopes of winning $25,000 in prize money. The 1929 Bunion Derby is considered the most grueling ultra-marathon of all time.
The event promoter Charlie Pyle put together a traveling Vaudeville show in hopes of raising the prize money, complete with dancing debutants, an all-girl band wearing pilot outfits and black faced comedians. This is an amazing tale told by the author Charles B. Kastner.
The good news is The Ed's girlfriend isn't seeing another guy behind his back. The bad news is she's seeing lots of guys for brief amounts of time and charging money to do so. If that weren't enough, The Ed's softball career may not be all it's cracked up to be, and he also may have stretched the truth in saying he beat Security Guy Irv in a footrace.
