    Kaci – We are so proud of you and your accomplishments. What’s even more impressive than your running accomplishments is the person you are on and off the trail. You represent the culture of ultra and trail running and make all of us, even back-of-the-packers like me, feel like a superstar! Thank you for raising the bar for all of us in so many ways!
