A first-time racer has set a new record for Unalaska's Ballyhoo Mountain Run.
On Saturday, Joanna "JJ" Hinderberger conquered the peak in 31 minutes and 18 seconds, shaving 17 seconds off the women's record set by Beatriz Dietrick two years ago.
"I'm feeling very good! Very tired," said Hinderberger at the finish line. "That's a tough run, for sure."
Going into the race, Hinderberger said she had no expectations of breaking the record. She had never even hiked up the 1,600-foot summit.
