In less than 4 weeks, I'm going to be running my first 100k trail race as part of the Bear Chase Race Series here in Colorado. It's going to be an incredibly demanding physical challenge and even more contested mental battle. Both of those extremes are integral into discovering just who "you" are as a person and never fail in being able to deliver a necessary moment of self-reflection.
One of your fellow amazing, beautiful, and down-right badass 'I Do It For Her' supporters has graciously offered to match each dollar donated up to $1,000! Race entry fees have already been paid for and the race is a local one so no travel expenses need to be covered (I.e. flights to Mongolia...) which means that every dollar donated goes directly to our most recent scholarship recipient, MaKayla.
She is resolutely determined young woman attending SLU this Fall and we couldn't be more proud of who she is and what she wants to accomplish.
Pushing my body to its limits while testing the fortitude of my mind and heart is a great encapsulation of our powerful mantra that demands we "become someone better than we ever thought possible". Anything, physical or emotional, that pushes you into the chaotic storm that is human life can ultimately lead to a more profound existence if you're able to stand your ground a keep putting one foot in front of the other.
