In our last race report for 2009 we have something a little out of the ordinary. Diminutive Singapore-based Nambanner Mika Kume performed an incredible feat this past October when she ran a six-day team-race through the Sahara Desert. Just stop for a moment and absorb that. Six days. Through a desert. The Sahara Desert! Mika may be small of stature but she is a giant when it comes to effort, determination and pure grit. And she did not just finish—her team finished second overall and she was the second fastest woman!
