A woman attempted to skate across the country from Bend, Oregon to Boston to attempt being the first transgender person to accomplish the feat. 

Calleigh Little started skateboarding long distances after a DUI took away her license, according to Buzzfeed News. She decided to go on the journey after being let go from a communications job and being forced to work in fast food in March 2017.

Little later faced several challenges, including running out of drinking water in Wyoming, contracting a bacterial infection, an ankle injury and later having to hitch rides after her skateboard was jammed up by winter weather. Despite not breaking the record, she crossed the finish line at her home 48 days after she started. 

"I crossed the finish line and I didn’t even know I was over it,” Little said. “And I was like, oh my god, I did it!”
