We run for so many different reasons. Some run for a living, others run to live. We run from problems or to solve problems. We run to be competitive or to ‘just run’. I love that about running. In a given day I can talk running to friends who are lawyers, doctors, scientists, engineers, guys who work with big data and guys who sell dumpsters, housewives, and guys like @kylewhalum who are rocking it out at night, working at @fleetfeetnash when he can and finding peace on the trail every single day. My friend @jennywbaker in writing about directing a recent ultra event said, “It’s an emotional and cultural paradox. Watching people who live differently, earn differently, work differently and believe differently suffer and succeed together is true beauty. I’ll always be thankful for our volunteers and runners who show me what humans are capable of when we decide to fight together instead of against each other.” 🙏

The thrill of victory, the agony of the feet.

Goodness. Still over here processing the whirl wind that is- training, completing and recovering from the Georgia jewel. It's funny how long you prep for things and then the day comes and all of your preparation takes you to the finish line of some sort. This past week has been amazing to relax and enjoy a few recovery jogs with no goal. Pretty much heaven, in my running world right now. I met up with a friend and logged 10 miles this morning which felt surprisingly good. Just dealing with achy feet. Anybody have remedies for achy feet? I'd appreciate them! Man. Still so thankful to have finished. 🙏🏼 (Finish photo- thank you to Jobi for capturing a moment I wished so badly my family could have been there for!) •

Thank's to @jobiewilliams for this awesome finish line photo! There's nothing better than completing a grueling race and having your kids run out to meet you as you cross the finish line! Best feeling ever!!! #Makingmykidsproud

It's all about the process, the community, the volunteers, the journey...and the finish line is pretty nice too.

Sometimes in the midst of misery and great effort, something simple can remind us to be happy. This little guy was given to me by some friends from France. We met by chance, through work, and a friendship began. Before they left to go home to France, I told them of my dream to one day run UTMB. We reminisced and I wished them well on their journey and they said, "I have a feeling we will be seeing you again." Before they left they gave me this little white tiger, and he hitched a ride for my entire race this past Saturday. He kept things in perspective and reminded me to be happy out there. #friends #motivation #dedication #inspiration #perspiration #trails #trailrunning #runwild #adventure #run #runner #running #ultrarunner #ultrarunning #smile #gajewel #timetoplay #salomon #myheart #myhappyplace #passion @francelengrand #nathans @nathansportsinc #ultramarathon

I'm still limping around with blisters covering the soles of my feet & hydrating after a fever all day yesterday....but every single mile & standing in a friend's wedding just an hour after the race was totally worth the sheer exhaustion that came & is still looming. Before Saturday I had not run more than 22 miles! I toed the line of my first ultra distance trial race with one of my best friends & we both conquered an incredibly challenging & relentless course of 35+ miles. 🏃🏽‍♀️🙈 I felt SO privileged to be out there, every mile, every aid station filled with beautiful volunteers, every breath of fresh air, every single crocodile tear shed, every single blister (there are over 10), ALL of it was a gift that is denied to so many & I don't take any of it for granted. I am so deeply humbled & so thankful by all of it.... even the pain, the lonely moments, the raw emotion that poured out.... so thankful. Doing hard things & persevering is always always always always worth it. Always. And you're gonna need friends/family who love you & remind you that you can do hard things. ❤️ I snagged fourth female, with a sprint to the finish with another super strong gal, missing the podium by 2 minutes. 🙈💃🏼 🙌🏽Thank you Jenny & Franklin & the many volunteers who made this such a wonderful race!!!! It will forever be a milestone in my little world & I cherish ALL of you!!!! 🤗Us humans....we are capable of really enormous things- like serving dirty runners for 24+ hours & loving them by shoving ice down their shirt, or running beyond what you ever imagined, alone in the woods, or directing a race while working other full time jobs & raising kiddos, or helping your wife duct tape her feet as she quietly curses you because she thinks she's dying......😣😗 We can do enormously lovely & hard things that make this world better. You can. And you should. ❤️ ((Thanks for capturing some pics when I was yelling at you, @joshtilford 😘🙈😗))
Such a glorious day on the trails with @katyhaytay! 🍃We started our Girls Night Out last night with a camping adventure, and we finished off with a little girl time on the trail at the Georgia Jewel. 🌄 My heart is so full, and I can't wait to see how far (literally- ha!) Katie takes running now that she's got the trail bug. 🏃‍♀️Y'all, this girl is fast, and she's determined. 💨 We finished together as first females for the 17 mile race, which in trail miles was really over 19 miles. 🤣 Loved crossing that finish line with you, my friend! 😘 Thank you RDs and volunteers! What a cool race! 🙌 #mskatieblaze #gno #toddlerfree #trailrunning #georgiajewel #radrabbit #hshive #rabbitresults #gobeyondpace #sauconyperegrine #runyourworld #motherrunner #womenrunning #womensrunningcommunity #marathontraining #timetoplay #GAjewel #salomon

the degree of slant in the last climb of the race=51; the high temperature of the day=87; the ounces of @nuunhydration enhanced water I consumed trying to stay hydrated=192; the times I thought about quitting=495; the times I reminded myself why I was out there=496; crossing the finish line=priceless
If you can't run, walk; if you can't walk, craw; if you can't craw, inch, but for heaven sakes don't stop moving forward!

"The harder the battle, the sweeter the victory." This race was a full on battle between mind, body, and soul in an all out effort to get to the finish. It wasn't a day about competing for me, it was a day about finishing and I clawed my way up some monster climbs, ignored chafing, and put the misery out of my mind. It was a day where I learned a lot about myself and I am proud to be able to do what I do. #timetoplay #gajewel #salomon #pinhoti #trails #ultrarunner #ultrarunning #trails #run #runner #runwild #rugged #adventure #longdistance #dedication #inspiration #perspiration

It's #medalmonday with the awards that I won the first year of this race, and the finishers award from 2017. It was a long, hard day and I earned both of them. #gajewel #ultrarunning #run #runner #trails #longdistance #dedication #perspiration #inspiration
