Anna PaxtonAnna Paxton lives in Sheffield, UK. On August 27, 2015 she completed the OCC (Orsieres-Champex-Chamonix) 53k ultramarathon, which is part of the UTMB ultra trail race series. This race starts in Switzerland and ends in France, and was her first ultra so she is now an ultrafinisher. Congratulations Anna!

Fun fact: to train for this race, Anna went on a 9-day, 170km solo hike through 3 countries. The butterfly shown in the picture was her traveling companion for a couple of miles during that trek.
