This is extraordinary story of ultra-marathon runner Lisa Tamati. Lisa forged a career running massive distances, across the most hostile of environments, including the Sahara Desert, the Australian Outback and the Himalayas.

Now, she has a new challenge.  At age 47 she and her fiancé Haisley O'Leary are trying to have a baby. She knows as well as anybody that at her age it's a long shot. But in our interview with her tonight she displays incredible honesty and emotion about the journey she and Haisley are on, in this, the race of her life.
