Denise Bourassa (making the boys cry) EP31

We got to meet Denise (aka tinydbo) at Run Under The Stars . She was a machine and won the women’s race and set a new course record with 66 miles in 10 hours. And by the way she did this only 2 weeks after winning The North Face Endurance Challenge 80K in Costa Rica.

Her love for trails and the ultra distances began in 2008. This passion has given Denise both athletic and interpersonal growth. Ultra Running has touched her mind, body and spirit in the unique way that only Ultra Running can do. Combining her love for travel and the trails, Denise feels fortunate to continue to enjoy racing competitively at the age of 47 and is looking forward to many more years of adventuring through racing and running.
