One Full week without Power Fitness PDX and I know you are ALL rocking and rolling with working out on your own! Right now I type from the Oregon Coast with quads that are fried and a mind that is inspired. Hood to Coast was incredible this year- in part because of all the talented participants. Our Team did incredible, and my own splits were great and I know I gave it my all. AS in when I ask you to put it all out there...I put it ALL out there which really was hard by the third hilly run in 24 hours. Yet I told myself I would not let anyone pass me, to only pass people and...I did but to one. The one person was a young military veteran who was wounded in the war, and on a team powering through with their wheelchair bikes. We played cat and mouse back and forth on the hill and then on the down hill he had the wheels, literally, and the best smile as he passed me. For him, I was honored to be Road Kill (Hood to Coast term for anyone you pass when racing). He inspired me after I finished to never ever EVER even contemplate giving up on anything I deem impossible, as everything is possible. He stood for challenge, courage, compassion, laughter in life, and camaraderie. Thus, I ask you....
