First of all, Kari, I am so sorry. I hope you recover quickly. Know my thoughts and prayers are with you...

Secondly, Chelle and I found some one to join us all to take the place of runner 12. Emeliee Dirks is our good friend and running partner and she would love to join us all. I can't wait to read her introduction and I am so excited for you all to meet her in person.

Emeliee, thank you so much for doing this so last minute. If it is any consolation to you, aside from mentally and physically preparing for this race, I have not done any packing, shopping, or other preparation for the Wasatch Back either.

Sometimes the best times come with the least preparation.

Welcome aboard!

Yeah, I would say that many of us haven't been training specifically for this race, so you'll be in good company, Emeliee. Hope Kari can feel better soon!

Hi, Emeliee here. I'm so excited and thankful that Amy and Chelle thought of me as a replacement! I've been wanted to do this race for years, but was never able to get a team together. This one seems so organized and great ~ I'm so excited! I'm not sure I'm ready for the climbs ~ but looking forward to the adventure!
