Michelle Ford is a true inspiration to us all. I watched in November as she came in third place at World's Toughest Mudder.

Badass Women of OCR – Emily Celuch

I wanted to feature Emily Celuch in my article series in a huge way after reading her story.  In my eyes, Emily has many “beyond” bad ass traits.
