To celebrate his graduation, Cason Crane ’17 and his mother, Isabella de la Houssaye ’86, who appears in green behind him, ran a 93-mile ultramarathon through Madagascar. The pair kept pace with each other for every leg of the six-day race: through remote villages and untouched flora and fauna — including a crocodile. He says: “A lot of our training involves doing other crazy stuff,” including multiple Ironman triathlons, marathons (de la Houssaye has run one in 42 of the 50 states), and mountaineering (Crane has climbed the highest mountain on each of the continents, including Mount Everest).
