Emma runs the BEST small town race I've ever seen. $13000+ in prize money, Olympians galore, flat fast scenic course in golden fall colors of the Colorado mountains. Day started with a high school girls race and then a HS boys race. Emma was high fiving every finisher and taking pictures with the runners. The kids loved it. The elite runners were introduced one by one and ran through the gauntlet of runners high fiving the entire crowd as music blared. Emma, Aisha Praught-Leer, Will Leer, Dominique Scott, Allie Keifer and others are dancing their asses off in the streets to an 80's cover band right now. Keifer ran 18 miles before the race and still took second behind Elvin Kibet. Beer, pizza and a party in the streets of tiny Crested Butte right now. If you're ever in Colorado in September, head on down to Emma's race. You won't regret it. She's hosting a dinner tonight too.
