A moment apart from cars to give you real news. A goat herder won the Ultra Trail Cerro Rojo in Puebla, in central Mexico women's ultramarathon... a 50 k race. Without shoes, wearing basic sandals made from recycled tires.

María Lorena Ramírez is a goat and cattle shepherd that walks 10-15 kilometers every day.

Carrying only a bottle of water, she ran the 50 kilometers in seven hours and three minutes, defeating 500 other runners from 12 countries.

She didn’t bring any gel, nor energy drinks, no energy food bars, no sun glasses, no expensive running shoes, no hydration vest, no Lycra and no compression socks.

Nike did not congratulate her, Red Bull had nothing to say. The win awarded her $320 USD
