Katie Visco had the unenviable task of speaking to the Mercer County High School student body (Wednesday, March 31) the last hour they were in school before spring break.

She’s used to big challenges. On Dec. 29, 2009 she finished a nine-month journey which began March 29 in Boston, Mass. and ended in San Diego, Calif.

Visco ran across the United States 18 miles at a time.

Departing from Mass. She made her way across 17 states 18 miles per day.
