Shannon Farar-Griefer, 52, of Hidden Hills, Calif., runs away from her team after stopping to drink water as she competes in the Badwater Ultramarathon in Death Valley National Park, Calif. The 135-mile (217 km) race, which bills itself as the world's toughest foot race, goes from Death Valley to Mt. Whitney, Calif. in temperatures which can reach 130 degrees Fahrenheit.
