  1. Sounds like a fab weekend! While I haven’t run a marathon (yet), I was still in awe of Deena Kastor when we did a race in Mammoth Lakes. That was just too awesome.

  2. You. Are. Awesome. Those paces!! And congrats to your sister! That’s amazing! My 4 x 800 relay team tried to break our school record this year.. but it didn’t happen lol:)

  3. Ahh can’t believe you got to meet Shalane! Great 10k! Looking forward to reading the full recap. I really want to participate in some kind of Runner’s World festival one day. And big congrats to your sister! What a way to end off her senior year. I got to see just a few seconds of Kara and Shalane’s 10k race at the Stanford Invite last year but had to go warm-up so I didn’t get to see their race. I was still pretty excited that we were in the same event, she was just in the crazy fast heat haha.
