less than two months aka friendship

Time on feet
that is first...

second
disconnect from pain
get your head on straight..

No ultra or AR event or DR will ever get you ready for the 500...
the only thing that gets you ready
is doing it
failing
learning
and heading back for more..

or if you are Willy
suffering
succeeding
and finding
it has grabbed hold of you...
and HAVING to come back for more

Nick and I
we feel the same
as Willy

few people 
get me...
Nick and Willy
they do.

We have been through something together
that has us
forever
entangled
in one another's 
lives
I am so very thankful
for this...

If I could have one wish
only one
I would hope for Nick to finish..
even if I don't
why?

I finally realized
what I love about competition
about pushing myself to my limit
it is the people...
the people you meet on the journey..

the people you connect with
on a level 
that only people who 
have been 
"in it" 
get it..

Your "in it"
may be beating cancer
it
may be having a baby
it 
may be finally letting go
it
may be losing weight
it
may be finding love
it
may be giving up everything
to find
the one
thing
that
really 
matters...

whatever it is...
your 
"in it"
there will be those people
who were there
experiencing it...
the connection
honor it
it is the real gift...
