Today I learned about Denise Mueller-Korenek - one of the fastest humans on the planet. She shattered the previous world record and took her rightful place in the history books!

Watch the video by WSJ - she is amazing. The amount of preperation and team work that went into breaking the world record and setting a new record far far beyond the old one is very thought provoking - the way Denise seems to relax in the middle of all this mess should be inspiration to everyone.

Going fast on a bike is dangerous. Going 296 km/h is insane. Even with custom built hardware and all the help and precautions it is very very dangerous. It makes me so happy that it was a success.
