Slaying Demons and Gittin’ Er Done at the Bandera 50K

Yesterday was the 50K out at Bandera. I love Bandera; it is my favorite place in the world to run. When I get in the car to drive out there, my soul is light and I have a big ol’ shit-eating grin on my face. Even when it’s sucky, it’s a great place to run.

This concept was tested yesterday.

  1. Oh Leah. What a day you had. I truly understand the need to cry. And then to shake it off and finish. That\’s what it\’s all about, right? The highs and lows. This was an important step for you and you did it. Time isn\’t the most important thing sometimes. Finishing and realizing how truly tough you are is what\’s important. So glad you\’re back on your feet again! So proud of you!!!

  2. Nice job handing what was clearly a challenge day due to the conditions and previous experiences. As someone who is slowly coming back to fitness, try not to compare so much to previous performances. You went out there, you tried and you persevered.

    Nice job
