Over the last couple weeks, I’d spoken to some pretty influential people in the likes of Sarah Pozdol, Anthony Matesi, and Amie Meyer about racing the elite women’s heat at the Spartan Sprint. I’m not an elite athlete. Never have nor never will be. The thought about being in the same corral as all of the other elite women sends waves of fear down my spine. But when John Shue triple dog dared me to do it by posting a poll about it on the Corn Fed page, I figured I would venture into the unknown. My team and my friends had my back.
As I sit here in the truck on the way back from North Carolina, I’ve got time to reflect upon today.
