Jill Karofsky celebrated two major milestones recently. She was sworn in to the Wisconsin Supreme Court in mile 35 out of a 100 mile marathon. The Justice says she'll celebrate with a Wisconsin beer.

NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King. A 100-mile ultramarathon is hard to do, but did anyone tell that to Jill Karofsky? Last weekend, Karofsky ran, finishing in 34 hours, a decent time made more impressive by the fact that she was sworn in to the Wisconsin Supreme Court while running. She took her oath at the 35-mile marker. Later, she told local news she'll celebrate by putting her feet up and drinking a Wisconsin beer. Have a few, Jill. It's MORNING EDITION.
