Cannot believe it is only four more. Wish I could be there in person to cheer you on, but you know I will be having my own personal cheering experience going on right here in CO. You are amazing girl, I know you hear it all the time. And there's a reason for that!

Michael said...

Wow only 4 more days!! You are totally going to ROCK it! Just made a donation (under Michael Weatherly) - it was direct through their website but under your run. Hopefully I did that the right way. Good LUCK!!

Tenacity!
I also go with stubbornness and freakin' relentless.

You're going to be so great this weekend!

Wanted to share with you, that one of the reasons I really really really really wanted to make it through the 50 miles this weekend, was because I wanted to bring my medal down to EVB to make you smile while you're running. Every one loves a good ultra medal. I'm so sorry I can't do that :( it was great motivation while I was out there for sure.

As far as allergies goes, this has been the worst year for me in a looooooong time!

Emz said...

So excited for you . . . gonna tell everyone about your debut on Channel 12, Thursday night.

YOU'RE A SUPERSTAR!

This is gonna be fun! :)

Jason said...

YOu are going to be even more awesome than you already are and that is downright hard to do.

What's next? Scale Kilamanjaro without a harness? Is there nothing you can do? I say no, I say you can do it all.

You are a SUPER DUPER HERO

Racing Dawn and the Mighty EMZ reunited - those treadmills don't stand a chance. Hoping the internet affords us some way of checking some of this out from afar on Channel 12. Good luck!!

BabyWeightMyFatAss said...

When I run my half on Saturday no matter what pain I feel I know it will be nothing to what my dear EMZ will be enduring for a good cause. You can do it!

Emz said...

Thank you so much everyone.

Dawn will have my phone. Expect tweets, photos, videos a plenty! ;)

Danielle said...

This is so awesome! I can't wait to read all about it!

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

I am going to be glued to my computer and phone and Friday and Saturday!!

SO PROUD OF YOU EMZ!!!!

May all the snot be gone by then!

Yay to Dawn for keeping us posted!

Nelly said...

Great to hear that you got 2 treadmills for your run, I would have been shocked if no one had stepped up and delivered on the treadmills. They are getting huge free advertising from you on this blog, as well as during the 24 hour treadmill run.

The run is almost here, good luck!

I wore my RUN EMZ shirt all day at the Big Sur Marathon expo, no one said hi to me, but wouldn't surprise me if people did notice what it was, haha

Carrie said...

Wow! 4 more days!! I can't wait to follow along. I made a donation, too - it seemed weird how it jumped to their site - hopefully I did it right. You are so amazing and inspiring. Have a great run!!!

Kelly Leigh said...

eeek I am all over the netti pot things lately. But more importantly can't wait to hear about your big run! sending lots of love and prayers and crossed fingers your way.

You freakin got this gf!

Jeff - DangleTheCarrot said...

This is so cool Emily. Gotta work at a stupid convention on Saturday and them make the 4hr drive home. Make sure Dawn is Twitter proficient so we can follow along - I'll have the iPad tuned into follow!!

Wells L said...

Michelle said...

SO excited for you. And, who doesn't love the netty pot? It is a gift! :) No more snot for you...I want you well!
You were on my mind at mile 24 of Eugene...."If EMZ can run for 24 hours, I can keep giving it my all!" Thanks for the inspiration!
Got my BQ with 4 minutes to spare! I'll take it!

Rene' said...

Tenacity reminds my of sophomore history cclass where I teacher used that word to get a giggle out of us: ten-ass-ity. He also enjoyed asinine.
