CLEVELAND (WJW)– Accomplished runner and world record holder Katie Spotz said she broke yet another record Thursday in Cleveland.

Spotz finished her run across Ohio of 11 ultramarathons in 11 days from Cincinnati to Cleveland.

Surrounded by family and friends who cheered her along as she crossed the invisible finish line at Edgewater Park, Spotz ran straight towards Lake Erie to jump in and celebrate.

“It’s very surreal like even making the halfway, making it into Cleveland anything could happen so it’s just a surreal feeling,” she said after her quick swim. “Can’t believe I’m here and I know I’ve done a lot of different challenges, but I was tested to the max.”
