Thank you ---- Everyone!!!

"Unless you test yourself, you stagnate. Unless you try to go way beyond what you've been able to do before, you won't develop and grow. When you go for it 100%, when you don't have the fear of "what If I fail", that's when you learn. That's when you are really living." Mark Allen, World Champion Triathlete

This quote says it all. On Saturday, June 23, I toed the starting line of the Western States 100 miler. It was an awe inspiring experience to say the least. I gave it my all and I succeeded in finishing UPRIGHT in 23:42!! That won me the coveted Silver Buckle! I also broke the Womens single age group record which was 25:19. I am so thankful for all my friends and family for all the encouragement and support that I received during my training. Matt, Gayle, my Mom, Shawn, Uta, Cameron, Chelsea, Courtney and Naomi. I couldn't have done it without you all. I will write a race report in a couple of days for those who are interested.
