NICK EICHER, HOST: Jill Karofsky is a brand new justice on the Wisconsin Supreme Court. She had her swearing in during a marathon ceremony last weekend.
And by marathon, I don’t mean the ceremony was really long. I mean she was literally sworn in in the middle of a marathon! A 100-mile ultramarathon to be more precise!
Karofsky took the oath of office during an outdoor ceremony in south-central Wisconsin around the 35-mile-marker.
KAROFSKY: And will faithfully and impartially discharge the duties of said office—to the best of my ability—to the best of my ability—so help me God—so help me God. Thank you.
I’m impressed. Terrific breath control.
The 54-year-old justice then finished the race, which took her 34 hours to complete.
It’s The World and Everything in It.
