Candice @ I Have Run said...

Made me get a little emotional too. I'm still in awe. And 100? You really are superwoman.

Marlene said...

Priceless! I can't hear the sound at work but I get the idea. :)

Heather said...

Syl said...

Foges said...

Emz said...

I needed to see it daily. Too hard to look down at my pants [and it's upside down, booo]. :)

abbi said...

so cool that you have it on video!!

Aimee said...

That's such an awesome finish video! Yay!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

Great video!!! Who wouldn't tear up at that?!

Jason said...

so bright smiles at 25.2 and 'is that it?' at mile 100????

I will say that yesterday's smile forced me to smile throughout my interval training this morning. Practicing for the mary on 12/5 to smile the entire way.

Emz said...

Jason. It was just the 50.
100 is next year!! Yay for smiling mary's!! ;)

RunningLaur said...

It's. On.

Emz said...

Oh how those two words make my heart melt.

well said my JJ friend.

Jason said...

Gotcha - now I see why you said 'is that it?' it was ONLY 50.....

Great job and thanks for sharing.

Laurie said...

So. Freaking. Awesome.

Teamarcia said...

Love that footage!

Slomohusky said...

This is why your fun! and the Rockstar you are!

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

Couple things:

First, very cool you have that video!

Second, whose dogs were those? They need a bath.

Third, nice finish line. when I did my ultra the start/finish line was literally a long piece of electrical tape across the road. They went all out on that sucker!

termite said...

how wonderful you have this captured on video. and peanut can view them years from now. ;-)

xo

Emz said...

Jeff - that was a good finish line?! Yikes.
The dogs. They smelled death. Or a dirty pickle juice drinker. Nope not mine.

Julie @ "Hotlegs Runner" said...

EMZ = EM Zuperwoman! yes you are!

Scott Keeps Running said...

Where you looking a little wobbly there at the end? :)

Emz said...

Scott - I was wondering how Long it'd take for someone to comment on that.

Here are my two reasons....

1. I was flailing my hands around like an idiot. A signature "Emz" move.

2. I had no freaking clue which way the finish line was. Couldn't tell if I was to run to the right of the pole or the left.

Answer to 2. --- the middle once you see there are actually two poles.

Karen R said...

First - I LOVE that song by Faith

Second - That video is awesome :) Shows you earned that buckle, baby!

Evolving Through Running said...

Awesome video. "Is that it?" ... you are too badass for words.

Or, since you're a movie quote master .... "Vasquez .... you're just too bad."

Emz said...

ETR - aliens. One of the four sci-fi movies I've ever seen. Love it.

ajh said...

This is excellent! You are awesome.

ShutUpandRun said...

Is that IT??? As in I want to do 50 more??? Oh yeah, that's coming. Love it. You are so cute.

Molly said...

I need to look up another word for awesome, 'cause that's what you are!!

Andrew Opala said...

Those dogs were nice ... they said "good job" in dog

Anne said...

How perfect that you have your superstah comment on video! :) You rock EMZ!

Colleen said...

Emz... that's awesome!

Erika said...

I love that you caught this on video! So awesome! And really, is that it?? I would have been asking, "where's my stretcher?"
You are amazing!

Her Name is Rio said...

Aww...so great! I'd be teary eyed too! LOL!

DRog said...

"Is that it" !!! NICE you were lookin for more?!

agreed awesome to have this on video

Mike Russell said...

That should be your trademark. I would love to see you say that at the end of the 100 miler. That is a finish line video that could go viral!

Mike

Nikki @ Balance and Moderation said...

So cool! I like how you jogged off at the end like you were going out for more - crazy!

Kera said...

ahemmmm. this is a very serious comment.

i want you to know that on my runs every day, you are running with me. you are like a little ghost (in front of me obviously) yelling at me to keep going. every time i think about stopping i think of you on mile 47 of that crazy race, and i keep going. sometimes i can't keep going, but i just thought i would tell you that when "let go" comes on, i think of you, and i love the part where it says, "there's beauty in the breakdown". you and your damn abs are the best.

xx

Silly Girl Running said...

I'm an emotional whimpo, so....you just got me teary eyed. ;)

Matty O said...

Yeah... I would have said the same thing Em. Mainly because there was no fancy timing mat to cross or crazy finisher's chute or anything like that. It seemed like an "anti-climatic" finish to an epic race!!!

Regardless, you got the buckle, thats all you need right? :)

Great job once again. Make a friendly suggestion for them to spruce up the finisher energy next time huh?

Johann said...

That is just special! Really great!

Kovas Palubinskas said...

So inspiring! (I mean, if you can do it...) :)

Emz said...

Kera - your comment has made my day [at 6am]. Day. Made. "let go" is my "go-to" song. Thanks to YOU.

Matty-O --- you get my little brain. Let me rephrase, you understand my little brain.
You nailed it.
Ummm, timing clock?
Chip?
Anything on the ground? Jeff, not even duct tape.
Just a whole lotta rv's, watering holes, digs & sweaty cowboys.

MR - I'm doing it. I'm saying that next year on the 100. Awesome.

Kovas - thanks for being kovas. ;)

Emz said...

While I'm sure there were "digs" there too.......
..... I meant "dogs".

Oh & kera --- did I already mention YOU are awesome?!
You are going to kill that marathon. Oh how I could be there to run with you.....or at least cheer you on in my 5" heels the whole time.

heather said...

Love this. Love you. Every day you inspire me, make me laugh, make me cry. Thanks for being you!

Jill said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you caught that moment on video. When I grow up, I want to be you!!
