And that's a wrap on Emily's Epic Birthday Adventure, at least the 2014 version. Final stats were: Day 1, 9hr ride/115mi, Day 2, 11hr run/40mi, Day 3, 7hr ride/50mi. I hope you've enjoyed reading about my adventures! I made plans to do most of this stuff by myself, and was totally surprised and thankful to have as much company as I did. And not just company, but exceedingly positive, encouraging, and RAD people came out to participate in all 3 days. I feel so lucky to have these types of friends and training buddies, that will look at a 12hr run, or a 24-degree day, and still say "I'm in." And thank you to my parents as well, for schlepping my stuff to/from the trail run, for baking me a complicated gingerbread birthday cake with egg nog frosting, for staying up all night just so that I could have a cup of hot noodles, and for encouraging me to dream big. IALYNMW!
