A U.S. Army captain has broken a Guinness World Record for running a mile in 10 minutes, 23 seconds.

The catch? She did it while wearing a bomb disposal suit that weighs more than 80 pounds.

According to news agency United Press International, Capt. Katie Hernandez donned the bomb disposal suit on Saturday.

Hernandez serves as the company commander of an ordnance disposal unit based out of Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

She broke the record at George Mason University after running a mile in 10 minutes and 23 seconds.

Hernandez captured the Guinness World Record from Army 1st Lt. Ashley Sorensen, with 11 minutes and 6 seconds in 2013.

Meanwhile, a woman from Texas has broken a Guinness World Record for most half marathons.

According to various news reports posted online, Andrea Amaro ran for 15 consecutive days.

Amaro started her record attempt with a full 26.2 mile run at the El Paso Marathon on the first day.

She then followed it up by running 13.1 miles each day for the next 14 days, which ended Sunday.

“I don’t think there was a day that went by where I thought I don’t know how I’m going to get through this,” Amaro shared.
