Kelly Leigh said...

24 hoursss????????????????? Are you crazy?!? I think you are. But you're the kind of crazy I like. Happy Valentine's day!

RockStarTri said...

Will Jack Bauer be on the 'mill next to you? If so, he'll be crying. Brings up an interesting thought: how do you chick someone on the t-mill?

Kevin and Kim Partridge said...

I think this beats my rim to rim to rim crazy, but is 100% more charitable. Can I come watch, cheer you on, be your pit crew, sleep to the lull of the treadmill, get donations, or get you on TV (I'm serious about the last one. Well, I was serious about all of them, but that particular one I was extra serious. I'm going to tell my friend at ABC 15).

Caroline said...

wow...this is epic...you are crazy yes but also very generous..what a fantastic thing you will do and your daughter will see that and remember this forever I know it. Good for you. I went to see the website and this is a great cause. For you the runner that is quite a challenge of course but I think in the end it will be you the mom who will have shined the most. Cheers to you!

Evolving Through Running said...

Very cool. Perfect event for the treadmill queen. With you in the event I fear for the treadmill. I can barely wrap my head around 24 minutes on the treadmill.

Morgan said...

You continue to be the most inspiring runner I "know"! Super exciting Emz!!!

Kristin @NyceLife said...

HOLY MOLEY!! 24 HOURS! You are a machine. You won't be able to tell ya apart from the 'mill other than your abs might just be a *little* more made of steel.

Christi said...

Great and appropriate run today! Congrats on taking the challenge to run 24 hours on the treadmill. You are "Em-a-zing!"

Melissa Cunningham said...

crazy head.

happyv-day and great run!

TRI714 said...

24 HOURS ON A DREAD !!And the insanity continues. Hey spice it up and do it in heels and jeans with some kick butt buckle to boot.

Adrienne said...

Wow! You are amazing. Can wait to witness.

Nelly said...

I hope you had a good trip to Vegas!

a 24 hour treadmill run? That sounds seriously insane! haha It does sound like it's for a good cause.

I do love how you used the logo from the show 24 though, my favorite show of all time =)

And I watched some of the Rugby Sevens on TV, unfortunately I missed New Zealand, I only saw the semifinal between South Africa and England, then the final between SA and Fiji. It was a bummer that NZ lost in the semis, though I loved seeing the emotion pour out of the Fiji coach after the victory over NZ. It meant so much that his country won.

Julie @ Hotlegs Runner said...

14.14 on the 14th...cute! =)

Happy valentine's day =)

Rose said...

And I thought signing up for a 24 hour track ultra was crazy. Girl, you are NUTS.

Silly Girl Running said...

That's it, it's official. You're officially not human and from another planet. 24 hours on the treadmill? By choice? Nutso!


Just kidding: you rock!

Johann said...

I’ve done a few 24 hour runs on 1km circuits, running around and around and around… but 24hour on the treadmill = totally crazy! But given the right charity I’d do it without thinking. You go do it! I’m sure it will inspire many.

fancy nancy said...

Absolutely perfect way to celebrate the day!!

24 hours on a treadmill.....you rock! Can I be like you when I grow up?!
