A couple months ago I got an email from my friend Jess asking if I would be interested in pacing a girl that works for Livewire Energy for the Javelina Jundred
I of course said yes with out a beat because I have a NEED to be around crazies as myself.
This was her at the start...
I was not at the start but I swear she looked just as fresh as she did in this picture above as she did when I showed up at the end of her 3rd loop (46miles).
It was then I knew she was going to kill it.
I believe she left on her 4th loop in 4th or 5th place.
I don't even know how to describe the day.
It was amazing.
Her crew was amazing.
She is one lucky girl to have so many amazing supporters!
Her Dad, Boyfriend, Brother, Boyfriends Parents & her friend & other pacer.
The plan was to have her friend pacer go from 60-75, then me from 75-90 & for her final loop her boyfriend #howsweetisthat :)
The plan was a good one. SHE KILLED the entire race and didn't seem to start struggling until very very late in the race and she still did it and did it AWESOME.
FIRST FEMALE and ONLY woman to finish under 20 hours.
This was her FIRST 101+ miler and she was SO STRONG.
|364 people started the race, 160 finished|

Kate was super thoughtful and got me this bracelet that I LOVE and can't wait to wear it during my marathon this upcoming weekend cause I will remember her and all her amazing-ness!!
|AS I RUN, AS I RUN, THE UNIVERSE IS RUNNING WITH ME|
Such an inspiration.
BUT I'm not sure if I will be pulling one of these out of my hat anytime soon :)
|And the whole AMAZING CREW!!|
