(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Endurance athlete Jessica Goldman began an attempt to run solo across the United States on Wednesday, leaving the steps of San Francisco City Hall at about 8:15 a.m.
Goldman aims to complete her run at New York's City Hall on June 18, which would set a record for the fastest female solo run across the United States.
Mayor Edwin Lee counted off Goldman's start on Wednesday morning.
According to the Mayor's Office, Godlman will be accompanied by members of the Mercy High School cross country running team for the first two miles of her trip.
