Natalie Uyeno(MM15186, HF17314, DA3505) I’M AN ULTRAMARATHONER!!! Completed 32 miles (a little over a 50K) in under 9 hours!!! Lifetime marathon or longer #8 (1st ultra) is in the books!
I was way undertrained, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity when I was gifted a race entry to the Nanny Goat 12-hour race by my awesome friend Scott Beardsley!
Thank you, Scott for believing in me and for your kind, generous offer and thanks to race director Shelli Sexton for putting on a great race with a fully loaded aid station, friendly volunteers, and a beautiful flat course on your horse ranch! I hadn’t run more than 13.1 miles since last July (before my cancer diagnosis), so I was especially stoked to be able to complete this ultra while actively battling breast cancer!
Thank you, Lord for the perfect running weather and for giving me the strength and endurance to get through this race and cross an ultramarathon off of my bucket list! I dedicated Saturday’s race to my friend Dawn, who is battling Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. She recently made the tough decision to go into hospice care! Cancer won’t stop me from following my dreams and reaching my goals! MM #15186 DA # 3505
