Marty Completes Everest Challenge - Published: 09/24/2012
Marty Mattox, head PT and owner of Ultrahealth, completed the Everest Bicycle Challenge in September, 2012. The two-day Eastern Sierra Nevada ride has a net elevation gain of 29,029 feet (the elevation of Mt. Everest). Immediately after the last climb of the last day - to the end of the paved road at 10,000 feet elevation in the White Mountains - she swore she'd never do it again. Three months later she's already planning and training to do the ride again in 2013. Anyone who's done a particularly grueling, spectacularly beautiful endurance event can relate to that kind of mind-shift.
