Why would you keep running ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธafter crossing the finish line of a 50 miler??...my face says it all ๐Ÿ˜my solo trip to race the #marktwain #50 ended with a certain @frenchyrun ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค—๐Ÿช๐Ÿฆ‘surprising me by showing up at the finish line! Made a great race even better, thank you bebe ๐Ÿ˜! Huge thanks to the RD and all the volunteers!  I even felt like a local with all the familiar faces๐Ÿ˜‰thank you for all the love ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜Š My legs felt strong after last weekend but I wasn't sure if everything would go the distance, but as today was the walk to defeat ALS in Eugene (@photos_for_life_66 wish I were there)and with my brother in the hospital again ๐Ÿ˜ฅI decided to give it a go! So happy that I did, and yes my body went the distance๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™oh and the Berryman Trail is amazing!!

This place...this race...just wow!
@rrr_steamboat what an incredibly ran race. From the RD's to all 300+ volunteers, thank you for your amazing support! 
RRR ๐Ÿ’ฏ take aways... well,  my peroneal tendinitis I've been dealing with is gone ๐Ÿ˜Šbut unfortunately my one solid week of training added to my weighted vest hikes was not quite enough for this race. Even with a conservative approach by mi 80 my body (guts) were done. As always thank you for the great support and to my sponsors thank you for everything always!! And yes my path did cross with my @frenchyrun ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿช๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿขlove you so very much! Thank you for joining me on this mountain โ›ฐadventure ๐Ÿ˜˜
