Extreme..What is considered extreme to one person is not to another.
Is jumping out of a plane, Base jumping , Climbing El Cap, Running ultramarathons, attempting a speed record on the 2,700 mile Pacific Crest trail or Climbing Mt. Everest? There is always going to be something more extreme to do.
Thinking that because I did 4 workouts, in a day was extreme. I hardly think so.
Extreme is in the eye of the beholder. When you have been around and married once to one of best Speed Climbers, and extreme athletes then you know what it means.
I have met so many amazing athletes..base jumpers, slackliners, Big wall speed climbers and yes even a few people who have summited Mt. Everest. Unless your training for a 150 mile race I guess some of you couldn't understand why I would do 2 or 4 workouts a day. I hope this helps those few people that don't understand extreme.
Most of you do :)
In just 29 days the Mt Everset climbers will start their bids for the summit. They will face all their demons. Some will make it to the top. Some will be to exhuasted to try to push and turn away with maybe only 100ft to go. They must all know their own limits, in a place you can't breath or think very clearly. Some will not even make it down alive.
These are my heros the men & women who will attempt their dream.
I will pray everyday and be glued to the internet watching the teams attempting the summit.
Next year at this time I will be in Nepal heading to my first base camp. I hope to be trained enough to be on the team with Mountain Madness and make it through the Kumba ice falls. They have an expadition that goes through the Kumba ice falls.
I want to meet the men and woman of Everest and be part of their journey. My dream is to make my attempt of Mt. Everest in 2010.
I hope you all now know why I do what I do. It's all training to get me to the top of Mt. Everest.
Everst is calling me and I will go.
Good luck & prayers to all the climbers.
