First Lt. Ashley Sorensen, with the 303rd Explosive Ordnance Disposal Battalion, weighs in while wearing a 75-pound fully functional bomb disposal suit moments before her attempt at a new world record for a one-mile run in the suit, at the University of Hawaii-Manoa, Honolulu, Hawaii, track, Sept. 23, 2013. Sorensen completed the mile in 11 minutes, 6 seconds, besting the existing record by more than two minutes, and pending review by the Guinness Book of World Records, her time will become the official record for fastest female one-mile run in an EOD bomb disposal suit.
