Woah

Cannot believe I actually did it. 

6 days, 120 miles
28 hours, 19 minutes
27th out of 74 in the sub-50 solo age group 
(which doesn't seem quite fair as I'm only 6 months away from 50, but I hung with the juniors)



Damn I fought for this medal/belt buckle! Harder than I've ever fought in a race. Guys, I cannot wait to tell you about the highs/lows/lessons of each day. And the pictures. OMG. You will die at the beauty and the stupidity (beer mile, anyone? Yeah, I did that).

I went up and over all those sharp points.

But, this morning I am flying down to Phoenix to give Sam a proper goodbye as he begins his college experience at ASU (he's already moved in - somehow did that without his mommy).

So, my formal and lengthy race report will have to wait a couple of days.

But, suffice it to say - holy balls that was one amazing experience. You have to do it before you die. You just do. I have never felt more alive or in the zone as a runner. Life changing for sure.

Thanks for all the support and encouragement on this journey!

Cheers!

  22. My life became devastated when my husband sent me packing, after 8 years that we have been together. I was lost and helpless after trying so many ways to make my husband take me back. One day at work, i was absent minded not knowing that my boss was calling me, so he sat and asked me what its was all about i told him and he smiled and said that it was not a problem. I never understand what he meant by it wasn't a problem getting my husband back, he said he used a spell to get his wife back when she left him for another man and now they are together till date and at first i was shocked hearing such thing from my boss. He gave me an email address of the great spell caster who helped him get his wife back, i never believed this would work but i had no choice that to get in contact with the spell caster which i did, and he requested for my information and that of my husband to enable him cast the spell and i sent him the details, but after two days, my mom called me that my husband came pleading that he wants me back, i never believed it because it was just like a dream and i had to rush down to my mothers place and to my greatest surprise, my husband was kneeling before me pleading for forgiveness that he wants me and the kid back home, then i gave Happy a call regarding sudden change of my husband and he made it clear to me that my husband will love me till the end of the world, that he will never leave my sight. Now me and my husband is back together again and has started doing pleasant things he hasn't done before, he makes me happy and do what he is suppose to do as a man without nagging. Please if you need help of any kind, kindly contact Happy for help and you can reach him via email: happylovespell2@gmail.com
