My name is Ferne Ryder I am 28 years old, September 17' I competed in a 36hr endurance race and won 1st place female, 2nd overall. This race called "The Ultimate Suck" began my love for racing. Since then my fitness has taken off. I race in endurance and obstacle course races and dabble in 1/2 and full marathons.
