Official G2G photos

I'm still in recovery mode from the G2G Ultra nearly 3 weeks ago. 170 miles can do that to you, I guess :) I'm just plain exhausted! I have had so many emotions lately. I'm glad that I am done! That I finished! I get sad when I look at photos because a part of me wants to be back there. I think of the miles covered (I have a hard time wrapping my head around it, to be honest). I think of the friendships made (I really miss these amazing runners). I think of the sunrises and sunsets (and remember thinking how lucky I am that I see these all the time living in Kanab!) It's a weird feeling I have right now and I can't really explain it. But, anyhow, I got the official race photos! And they're too good not to share :) So here goes!
The morning of day 1. Look how clean I am!!

Standing on the edge of the Grand Canyon. I have no clue what is in store.

Day 1 -- nervous

Confident



Me and Mike, who ran in sandals :)

Day 1, about 5 miles from camp. I could not wait to get there.

Crossing another finish line


Haha.. ahh camp.

This is Joe, an awesome volunteer. He's the best!

Still smilin'


I remember how happy I was to see local photographer Barry Glazier. That made me SMILE!!



Oh yeh, we had some climbing, too.






This was stage 5. I know you can't see it here, but I was a freakin' mess this day. Tears nonstop.

At the finish line with race directors Colin and Tess. They are just the best!

Country flags at sunset Stage 2. Beautiful site.


My best mountain goat impression

Camp on night 1. So beautiful seeing the tents all aglow.


Race day morning - Day 1. Grand Canyon. Everyone! I'm on the left next to the flags in the back row with my hands up.

And we are off!


Just one of the many checkpoints


Campsite from above


An awesome reminder on day 6 that we were almost there!!

Finish line of stage 5.

Finishers!
I will cherish these photos forever. I am so thankful for the crew and volunteers who were there with us, keeping us safe and preserving these memories. xoxo
