Inspiration from pre race leadville meeting

Inspiration from pre race leadville meeting

I had to write a quick note on today’s pre- race pep rally!  It was truly uplifting and encouraging to know that everyone is gunning for the 800 racers that will toe the line tomorrow.  Ken Chlouber the former race director spoke with high expectations on not to give up, not to quit and that it will hurt.  His famous quote that he has said over the years was spoken from the heart and it truly was as it brought tears to my eyes.   “You’re better than you think you are and you can do more than you think you can!”  Then he said just dig deep and finish so when you get home and your friend asks if you finished it’s easy to say YES instead of spending 30 minutes explaining a list of excuses why you didn’t make it.  Ha Ha! so true…..

800 people entered and 109 are women so I guess I have to represent!  Follow me online starting at 4:00am mountain time
