Few women have the guts or fortitude to subject themselves to the rigors of wilderness trail running.  Notwithstanding the physical risks, there's always the risk that any trail run could end in a humiliating arrest and confinement.  But Beth and her ilk face these risks with willful abandon.  Nothing could rock their will.  Nothing could break their stoic defiance of the wilderness border when it comes to their sport. 

A pillar of strength.
