Across the finish line with .0056% of the available time to spare.

Gunhild Swanson would be a badass just for running the 2015 Western States 100-mile race. Frankly, I also think she's a badass just for being 71. But Gunhild Swanson is a badass of fantastic proportions for becoming the oldest person to finish the 100-mile race at the age of 71, and an even bigger fantastic badass for powering through to cross the line with only 6 seconds to spare on the 30-hour time limit. In short, she's pretty much a big enough badass to have the name "Gunhild" and have everyone be like "yeah, that fits."
