The highline is a tough run and everyone suffers on those hills. You ran more than you give yourself credit for and you are also stronger than you think. I'm glad you came out and toughed it out. You fight the demons on your shoulder very well!!!! Are you sure you are not an adventure racer :)
I thought you did great. That first uphill is hard, and without a warm up. Everyone is suffering, whether you can see it or not (you end up wondering if you are the only one who is hurting, and think that everyone else is just cruising up the hill. There wasn't much talking....). Yes, the trail was beautiful, and I'm glad you were there :)
Thank you for your kind words:) Yes, I cannot see how much you two are suffering precisely because you're cruising up that hill! :)
She *is* an adventure racer! You have all finished Wilderness Traverse the same number of times. :)
What Bash said! There were some long stretches of toughing it out while half the team happily cruised ahead :)
Yes, and she sure showed that toughness yesterday!
