Sometimes you need to push yourself out of your comfort zone. Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. Yesterday was certainly, the best. Some of us are bruised, ill, blistered and a little iced up today but all of us closed out the day feeling proud of ourselves and each other. We did 7 summits in the Phoenix Summit Challenge. 25 miles, over 4,900 ft of elevation gain, in a 12 hr time constraint. Today I’m one tired but very happy lady, and in awe of all 1250 people who hit the trails for 4, 5, and 7 challenges yesterday.
