I'm sure we'll be processing this one for a while yet, but... wow. The last couple of days have been incredible. Three quick thank yous:
Thank you to everyone who poured on their support from near and far- before, during, and after the race. We really felt the community as wind at our back and it was a constant source of good spirits and inspiration.
Thanks to this crew - I'm feeling pretty good about how we did, keeping our lady cool, prepped, hydrated, and on her way efficiently. 
Lastly: @kaytlyn_g. What a day. You ran a smart, patient, determined, gritty, and tough race. It was absolutely awe-inspiring and amazing to watch on the course and especially as I paced along as we really started to race after Forest Hill.
Congrats. You have no idea how strong you are, and that's what makes this so fun. I love you, and I'm SO proud of you. Thank you for showing us all what strength and grace looks like.

Reposting @team7hills - @kaytlyn_g and I will be posting our Western States shenanigans with @iitburton @ladiahallie @adamcfrye @tyler.beres and others this week. Follow along here/there/wherever. It's western time!

What's up Team7HillsFolk! @kaytlyn_g and @elyg here- checking in from just outside the #WS100 start line. Earlier today we went out on a fun little shakeout here near Squaw. The sun and heat were quickly replaced this afternoon with a thunderstorm, but it hasn't dampened our spirits or rained on our parade. Things are going to get weird. We hope you're excited!

Going to channel some of these moments from this past weekend's run as we settle into 100+ degree temps all week and this weekend as I pace/crew @kaytlyn_g at #WS100. 
Thinking of snow might not help much, but it's probably better than the amount of heat training I did (zero). #iceicebaby #seriously #turnmeintoanicebaby #itllfeelnice #westernstates #westerntoasty

#mountainmonday. For the last couple years, every time I ran to Defiance, I'd look west towards the ridgeline on P3 and tell myself that next time, I would check out that line/get over to that peak. This weekend I finally made it over there, and it delivered: technical, adventurous, steep drop offs/exposure (in some spots), and fun scrunbling.  It reminded me of the Lakes District. 
Can't believe it's taken me this long to get over to this place. Can't wait to get back again, and again, and again.

First i90 FunRun of the season today with @seany_mike, complete with some 'shwacking, snow-sliding, scrunbling, and a sunburn. 20 miles, 9k feet of vert, and some peak tagging. Yeehaw!

#tbt to last weekend, running some fun miles in the Teanaway. There was a wide, less technical trail about 10 feet to my left, but this rocky ridge was more dramatic. 📷: @kaytlyn_g

It doesn't matter how crowded the lot or the trails are, some views never get old.

After months of busyness/life-yness, @kaytlyn_g and I are starting to finally get back to our old ways: pointing somewhere on a map and going.

Sunday easy miles with @kaytlyn_g. There's seemingly always another new (to us) and very green trail right around the corner.

Great evening for some miles in Discovery. Legs are being stubborn, getting back into it. @team7hills @sevenhillsrunning
