Our 11-year-old son just signed up for his first 10-mile race 🙌🏻 and it reminded me that I never posted this awesome finish line photo from the boys’ last trail 5K in October! 🏃🏼♂️ I love that they enjoy running, but I really love that they enjoy running together! 💚
Finished running 100miles less than 24 hours ago, diagnosed with influenza 5 hours ago. 😂
At least it's something manageable😉
I'll be sitting here enjoying my chicken soup & Netflix bingeing for the next 2 days.
This weekend, I ran social media updates for the @irunwithgoatz#hitchcockendurance race: 100 mile, 50 mile, and half marathon. I learned a lot and while it wasn't perfect (I'm sorry if I misspelled a name or transposed a number), it was a blast. I was able to witness a couple of sunrises and sunsets and wonderful people in between. I was the girl in the sleeping bag. I carb loaded for a race I didn't run. I drank a shot or three of Fireball. But I saw beauty in people at their core: runners who kicked ass and who struggled, who tried their hardest at an even harder race, a runner from Alaska who did 50 miles with a trach say "I have the heart, but just not the body to finish 100 miles", and private messages from people thanking me for my help. But the thanks goes to Ron who is a fantastic race director, Scott who runs a wicked timing system, TJ and Mindy who rock some amazing trail markings, Dustin "piled high and deeper" smarty-pants, Matthew who jumps in and helps other RDs like they help him, the Loess Hills Ski Patrol who saves lives and clean up puke without batting an eye, the Hitchcock Nature Center who simply ROCKS. Last, but not least, our amazing volunteers and GOATz groupies. I know I'll forget someone, but please know I am so grateful for friends I've met far and wide because of the GOATz. Here's to an amazing 2018! #irunwithgoatz
