鈥業 am late, sir,鈥?she said. 鈥業 am exceedingly sorry.鈥? 鈥淚鈥檓 a what? A room?鈥?Jenn was halfway out of town again before her rickety Spanish let herfigure out what Mama Tita was talking about: she was in fourth place. Only Scott, Arnulfo, andSilvino were still ahead of her, and she was nibbling steadily at their lead. Caballo had picked herspirit name perfectly: twelve years after Leadville, the Bruja was back with a vengeance. During the two years which immediately preceded the cessation of my official life, my wife and I were working together at the "Liberty." I had first planned and written it as a short essay in 1854. It was in mounting the steps of the Capitol, in January, 1855, that the thought first arose of converting it into a volume.

Let everyone go nuts over Ann and the Tarahumara, hethought, while I stealth myself to a trophy. After finishing ninth the previous year in 21:45,Sandoval had the best training year of his life. Quietly, he鈥檇 been coming to Leadville throughoutthe summer, running each segment of the course over and over until he鈥檇 memorized every twist,quirk, and creek crossing. A nineteen-hour run should win it, Sandoval figured, and he was readyto run one. Less than a minute later, Martimano and Juan popped out of the woods and came scrambling downthe hill behind her. Tony Post of Rockport was so swept up in the drama, he didn鈥檛 care for themoment that his boys were not only losing but had also shit-canned the shoes he was paying themto wear. 鈥淚t was the most amazing thing,鈥?said Post, once a nationally ranked marathoner himself,with times in the low 2:20s. 鈥淲e were just flipping out, watching this woman take control.鈥?
