Happy Mother's Day! And CONGRATULATIONS!!!! Unfortunately, I had some health issues and couldn't come down in person, but I did catch you on live TV. You looked great! Pret-ty cool to see you doing good for others with your god-given talent!

XLMIC said...

I am seriously moved to tears. Seriously. Watching that clip did me in… I was already in a state of being blown away by the mere idea of you doing this and in awe of the bigness of your heart and spirit, but now… you are one of those larger-than-life people, Emz. Seeing it in that clip … I am awash in emotions. I wish I had been in the presence of that which is YOU while it was happening. God bless you, Emz. You give of yourself like no other.

ShutUpandRun said...

Still cannot get over what you did. Everytime I see the clip and it shows 99.99 I cry. And when you hug PITA and your dad.

The Turtle said...

Congratulations on your amazing accomplishment. I admit I cried a little watching that clip - you continue to impress and inspire me daily.

XLMIC said...

I was such a mess I forgot to wish you a wonderful Mother's Day! And to say that those nephews are movie star good-looking…like their auntie ;-)

Emz said...

XLMIC. Your comment has me in tears....really I had gone a whole two hours w/o crying. I don't deserve 94% of it but I thank you for it. ;)

But this time…THIS TIME YOU DONE DONE IT. I am so FREAKING proud of you I can’t even muster up the words.
Your super fast marathon times…ha!
Your running Boston…meh!
Your belt buckle…fooey!
What you did here is incredible! I’ve shared the video link with no less than a hundred people!
You keep shining girl YOU KEEP SHINING.
Tons of luv, Q
