Weeks words:


These were the words that made up my build into Western States Endurance Run. I had moments of all these words; some in strong abundance and some in whimpering shivers.
My day; was my day.
I passed Majell at 50km and i said to him “it feels hard today” he said “it’s your day to make what you want of it”
Of course i wanted to run well and fast but i also wanted to enjoy moments i missed last year; look people in the eye and thank them for their help, take the time to leave checkpoints prepared and control what i could. I improved on areas i saw as weaknesses from last year and i also went backwards on things that were my strength... how cool to experience the same race 365 days later and have a totally different experience; to struggle in new ways and also soar in others

Highlights of my day included;

running into Robinson flat to my crew Matt, Don and Dad all together and smiling,

having the kids of Robie Point dressed head to toe in team Lucy gear run me in to Michigan bluff,

picking up my brother to pace me down and over the river and him saying “this is one of my proudest moments, getting to watch you in your element”,

Running into mile 99, having lost a lot of time with a twinged knee but seeing my Auburn family still smiling and having the kids elated to race me to the track

I knew early on that i wasn’t going to be in the same position as last year, but nonetheless i was creating history- my history, it wasn’t going to be any records but it was going to be special.

Western states is a special day. I will be back but right now i am so grateful for the 100miles i traversed and the paths i crossed with so many heroes for whatever day they had.

Ps. How about that women’s race?!

Life’s quotes: “the one who falls and gets up is stronger then the one that never fell”
