This kick-ass looking runner is my sister-in-law. She runs 100 mile Ultra-Marathons - and WINS!
This weekend she is defending one of her wins last year in Colorado. The race begins at 6 am on Friday. She expects to finish sometime Saturday morning. I am not kidding....she runs continuously for over 24 hours - at 11,000 ft, in the mountains, on trails, through rivers, over snow, in rain/hail etc...and WINS!
My brother "paces" her for the last 40 miles of the race. This picture was taken of them last year. I love it! I am proud of them - to me they do the extraordinary with humility and grace. They are wonderful examples to my children. They make me think about what I can do in my own life to set personal challenges (don't look for me to run an ultra marathon, I know my limitations!).
Our family is off to visit Chicago for the weekend so I will be away from blogging. Have a wonderful weekend friends.
