With no previous distance running experience, Molly Cuevas completes 35 miles per day on her journey across the country
Molly Cuevas is a 25-year-old, from Bay area, with no previous experience running long distances. With help and training from endurance coach, Bree Lambert, on April 1st, Molly set out to run across the United States. From her beginning on the Santa Monica Pier, through the end of her adventure in June, Molly will run the 3,000 miles from California to New York. She is running an average pace of 35 miles per day and is currently over 1,100 miles into her journey.
Why run across the United States? As Molly points out on her website, https://milesbymolly.com/, she is fortunate to have been born with full physical capabilities that have allowed her to work hard and become a collegiate field hockey athlete. Not everyone is so fortunate. Molly is running to raise funds for the Challenged Athlete Foundation (CAF). The CAF provides support and opportunities, to people with physical challenges, to pursue an active lifestyle through athletics and other physical activity. Molly’s goal is to raise $50,000 for CAF over the next 2 months. She has already reached an incredible $24,000 in donations and strives to reach her fundraising goal and “spread awareness, promote inclusion, and unite people” along her journey.
Molly Cuevas is part of the UltrAspire Immortal team along with Elite Immortal Bree Lambert. It is important to UltrAspire to share endeavors that their athletes are passionate about, especially when what they do is for such a great cause. Along her route Molly has been using the UltrAspire Momentum as her primary hydration vest. The UltrAspire team is thrilled to continue to support Molly on her adventure and cheer her on as she completes the journey to New York and raises the $50,000 to benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation.
