OK more nervous.... yeah way more nervous. lol Friday night I fly out after work on a whirlwind travel mania... haha OK I don't know what to call it and its been a very busy stressful week. I fly out Friday night to Winnipeg MB (never been to Manitoba) get a car rental and drive an hour away to crash on a hotel floor with friends that were awesome to offer me a spot to crash... better then sleeping in my car rental. I then race the Spartan Super Saturday morning, shower somewhere, catch dinner with friends and fly out that night back home. My son heads to the States early with my parents for vacation and then 3 days later I show up and get a few days of rest.... I can't wait!!!!!!
After that it's mostly race everywhere kinda of weekends until October. October is going to be amazing... I am heading back to Seattle to complete the first ever Spartan Beast there. (yes I seem to do that lots with Spartans lol) But not only will I get to see what it will be like but I will also be bringing home my 3X Spartan Trifecta Medal! Last year I brought home the 2X Trifecta one and I can't wait. You see, with the amount of Western Canadian Races I am doing this summer thanks to my seasons pass I only needed a Beast and Super... had to as I wasn't going to get this close again. You see when I was going thru my separation I decided back then and even maybe 6 months before that I would live without regrets. I started living my life, started taking back my life, living it and enjoying it, taking chances and winging it. I had failures but also had so much more success. I have so many awesome positive people in my life now. I absolutely LOVE THIS!! I love you all!! Growing up I was scared and shy.... my personality tests all said I was a major introvert... my latest one that I took the 4th day at my new job three months ago told me otherwise. I was shocked at first but in looking back I can see how much I changed. I mean I changed a lot and for the best I think. Least that's all that matters doesn't it? The ones closest to me are cared for a loved. I don't care what you think about me, I am living my life on my terms now. I am happy and that's all that matters. I am strong and determined, speak my mind and no holding back. Almost dying in March made me realize even more so that time is precious... I thought that before but I needed a wakeup call about my job at the time.... I took chances and I landed on my feet... luckily but regardless I would have figured out another way... there is always another way... your never stuck... your not a tree... you can get up and try something else. People come into your life for one reason or another... I truly believe that. They either help teach you a lesson or add more to it. If it's meant to be it will be... I know another corny line but it's so true.
Here is a video a friend sent to me.... speaks volumes to me. If anything I hope you get it and like the message as much as I do. This guy is amazing and always speaks the words I feel inside but can't get out as well as he can. I always cry when I watch these.
Wow almost forgot.... my son and I ran a race on Canada Day at Spruce Meadows. We ran the Heros Behind the Heros 5k OCR race in support of our military. It was so much fun with friends and the obstacles were military style too. You know what was even better was my body felt pretty great and my lungs did too!! I almost had everything match up this time. Was a blast and had a awesome time even with completing the obstacles. Have a couple pics to post. Also have my pictures from Rundle's Revenge and have a favorite one. Amazing times, so many awesome memories and so much fun.
So not sure when I will update again but will try to in between the busy summer of racing and living life!! I hope you are doing that too... enjoying life!
Until next time...
I am a single mom with one son that has been living with asthma since I was 2yrs old. I also almost died three times due to severe asthma attacks! I don't let my asthma stop me from accomplishing new goals and living life to the fullest.
