Quote Of The Day
“I think of myself as a pretty tough person, but I’ve never been in such a pain cave as I was yesterday. I mean, I was in such a dark place that I’ve never experienced before. … There were a lot of really dark places where I was throwing up and questioning, honestly, life [laughs] and why I was doing this. And the community, I mean people were just so nice the whole time and encouraging me and walking with me and getting me through those rough spots. … Normally when a race goes South like that, I feel pretty disappointed after, but I actually feel a sense of pride because it was for sure the hardest thing I’ve ever accomplished.”
