BattleFrog, a 24 hour extreme race designed by a Navy seal, consists of a 5-mile-run with 25 obstacles, and a swimming portion thats around 30 miles long. This is meant to test the limits of even the fittest adults.

But that didnt stop Milla Star Bizzotto, a 9-year-old from Miami, Florida, who competed in the grueling event alongside her father, Christian Bizzotto.

In fact, Milla was the only one under 18 permitted to participate in the event. She was allowed to participate if her dad did the race alongside her.

She literally murdered it, Christian told The Miami Herald. I was so convinced the race was going to crush her. I wanted to prove to her that its tougher than she thought. But when we finished it, all she wanted to do was another lap.

In order to prepare for the race, Milla trained for five days a week and three hours each day, for several months.

I dont want to play video games, I dont want to Hoverboard, Milla said in an interview with the Miami Herald. I dont want to do things to make life easier. I want to be comfortable being uncomfortable. I have one body and its all I want and all I love.

Milla also has a Go Fund Me page to help fund future events she wants to participate in.

On the page she has a statement of purpose, which has a message about bullying.

My name is Milla Star Bizzotto, Im 9 years old. I dont spend all day playing videogames. I have a mission. I obstacle course race with a purpose. I DONT RUN THE KIDS COURSE! I want to inspire a generation. #InspirationForTheIPadGeneration I want to inspire kids to eat healthy and get outside and play. I want kids to stand up to bullies. I was bullied at school, kids get bullied all the time. I no longer get bullied, now #IAmTheAntiBully! We are all made in different shapes and sizes, we need to love our bodies! #LoveYourBody.

I dont get bullied anymore. I know how to stand up for myself now. And I love what I do. I want to do it forever.
