If success is a measure of suffering, those who braved the course at the Spartan Lake Tahoe World Championships have much to be proud of. Alison Haase was successful. She did not only challenge herself by braving the Ultra beast in weather conditions that caused many to bow out, she went on to take the win! You might be asking yourself… Alison who? Know she is not one of the high profile athletes on the circuit, she is just someone who put in the work, trained hard, followed direction and put her shoulder to the wheel and came out victorious and beyond even her own expectations. This interview is uncommon. Its more inspirational (in my mind) because given the right circumstances, it could have been you!
