Race photos are up and I'm in love. I feel cold just looking at how many layers I had on but I did what I had to do in order to survive. 😁

One day I will return and take on that beast again. She's beautiful, she's evil, she's everything I love in a race course.

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! 💚

50 miles
The toughest thing I've ever done!!!
Held onto 1st place for 40 miles, but just didn't have it in me. So 2nd place it is. Started at 9pm and ended at 7:30am.
10:30 finish with the sunrise. The hills were no joke 😨

Finished running 100miles less than 24 hours ago, diagnosed with influenza 5 hours ago. 😂
Booo!
At least it's something manageable😉 
I'll be sitting here enjoying my chicken soup & Netflix bingeing for the next 2 days.

100s were fun for a long time but I can’t do them anymore, Im ready for the next chapter, whatever that may be. Here’s to concluding 2017 and adventure planning 2018!

This man is a very inspirational human being. I've known him for years. He literally took a run down runner and brought his hopes up. Because of him I've decided to sign up for my first 100 miler and at Hitchcock. He has faith and believes in me just like the other people in my life #irunwithgoatz #greateromahaareatrailrunnerz #scaredandexcited#pushingmyboundaries #2018#biggeryearahead

And with that my season has *finally* come to an end. This past weekend was all about finding the fun and believe it or not I did have fun.
.
If you've never done the #hitchcockexperience you're missing out. The people are amazing, the course will take your breath away and the swag is off the chart.
.
My day ended sooner than I would have liked with one spectacular tumble down what seemed like an ever ending hill (swipe) but I'll live. I'm bruised and beaten up but you can't wipe that smile off my face.
.
2017 has been one hell of a fantastic year filled with so much growth and success. .
If you're ever in Iowa and have the opportunity to check out the Hitchcock Nature centre...do it. You won't regret it.

So proud to be a part of Nile's 100 mile journey. I know it was tough for him and most impressively doing it at Hitchcock 100. #pacer#hitchcock100#hundo#100miler#ultramarathoner #nebraskarunners #greateromahaareatrailrunnerz #goatz#irunwithgoatz #success #friendsandfamily

Jay ran the #hitchcockexperience 50 miler last night starting at 9pm and finishing this morning clocking in at 13:04...So cool to see all the lights when the runners took off! It was a freezing cold night on some steep and hilly trails through the woods! What’s not to like about that?? 😱😱Great job to all the runners!! #goatz #trailrunning #ultrarunning #kindofgladiwasnotrunning #maybenextyear #irunwithgoatz

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
