Her name is "Chipmunk", she's 14 and she's out to set a record.

. . . .

Chipmunk is Neva Warren of Florida and she got her trail name because of her 
chippy cheeks.

. . . .

She got the idea after a short hike during a family vacation in Shenandoah 
National Park.  She told us she trained on a flat, paved, bike trail in 
Florida, "No hills, nothing.  I could only get up to about 12 miles and 
(now) the trail has done a lot of training for me and I can do about 20 
miles now."
