Taco Bell Quesadilla Motivates Triathlete To Finish A 273-mile Race


By Meredith Ganzman

An triathlete recently ran a more than five day race with the help of her favorite fast food- Taco Bell.

Alyssa Godesky was racing in the 273-mile Vermont Long Trail competition. She ran about 55 miles a day, scaling rocks and cliffs and wading through mud.

And on the last night, her crew hiked 20-miles into the woods to get her a Taco Bell quesadilla that pushed the 33-year-old athlete through to the finish line.

The motivating meal helped her complete the race in record time- five days, two hours and 37 minutes.
