Rising Star: Amelia Boone in Outside

 For my next act…

Yes, it’s cool that World’s Toughest Mudder, Amelia Boone, has her own Topps card.

And sure, it’s incredible that she’s stood atop the podium in six of seven obstacle races she’s entered this year…

…including the Spartan World Championship in Vermont.

But what I find most stunning is the fact that she’s done so while working (upwards of 80 hours per week) as a corporate bankruptcy attorney for one of the world’s biggest law firms – Skadden, Arps.

Crazy, right?

How does she find time to train?
