So happy I completed all for races in the Michelob Ultra Challenge ???? I got to watch my hero and former coach take first female overall in the 15k . I got to cheer for the legendary Meb Keflezighi as he ran past after the turnaround to take third in the half marathon. I got to watch the sun rise over the water on Bayshore Boulevard. I ran some races with my husband, my friends, and one my mom. Gasparilla Distance Classic is such an amazing race weekend ❤️❤️❤️ can't wait for next year ????????♀️???????????? #pgdc17 #floridarunner #gasparilla2017 #gasparilladistanceclassic #runnergirl #runnersofinstagram #runallthemiles #ultrarunning #runnerscommunity #runitfast #untilthereisnothingleft
