Burning River Success!

On August 5, 2008, in Uncategorized, by Meghan

Running 100 miles is hard, but I did it! There were so many people who helped me with this experience, so I can’t even begin to talk about running 100 miles without thanking everyone for their selfless work towards my goal. Thank you to all of you!

I can’t say the experience was always pretty. In fact, it got a little ugly out there. Despite all of that, I had so much fun. There is so much to the story, and I’ll try to tell it succinctly and entertainingly over the next few days. My family and friends took approximately 1 million photos, and I’ll even share the ones from the ugly times. In the meantime, here are a few photos to satiate your interest.

    You rocked it girl. If it wasn’t for that pavement I know you would have been even faster, you are so amazing. I am so proud and so excited to have been a part of your day! Please tell your family that I think they are amazing and it was so nice to meet them! Hopefully you are recovering quick to get ready for your next endeavor!

    Yeah!!!!!! I’m already impressed that you can wear something around your waist without a shirt. I get such horrible chub rub — I guess since you don’t have chub you don’t rub!
