We are all students and teachers. I often ask myself, “What did I come here to learn, and what did I come to teach?” I learned a lot over the weekend, I am not super human, but only human. I bleed red just like everybody else. I may get knocked down but I will never be knocked out!!!I came to teach everyone to love life and have fun, even if there is suffering in the process.
I did not finish Western states 100 made it to mile 85 and needed an IV which automatically disqualifies me from the race.I never felt right from the beginning. I kept thinking I will feel better and My energy would get better. I felt like passing out and could barley move.Thanks for all your positive vibes.Every 100 mile race can't be perfect. if I knew the outcome of each race, and knew I would finish every time. I doubt I would love this distance so much. I do it to challenge myself ,and sometimes the challenge is to tell yourself to be smart ,and save the fight for another day.
I will write a story soon. I love you all!!!
Thanks to my boyfriend Andy Kumeda and crew chief "Firecracker" Kathy D'Onofrio for all there support and hard work to get me to mile 85.
