and believe in the one reason why it will."
Forget all the reasons why it won't work.
Forget the fact that the average finishing rate of the Leadville 100 is historically less than 50%.
Forget the fact that the cut-offs are unforgiving, with no room for error or misjudgment.
Forget the fact that the race is at high altitude from start to finish,
and that every breath leaves you feeling like you are running at tempo pace.
Forget that you will experience rough terrain, 6 mountain climbs and 2 river crossings.
Forget the dry mountain air, and the possibility of drastic temperature change ( while you have been acclimating to 105 temps with 75% humidity).
Forget the fact that you had 2 DNF's this year; stitches in your knee after a bad fall,
and that you have a touch of tendinosis in your left ankle.
Forget the fact that it will be extremely emotional, that you are carrying baggage in your hands and in your heart. That its going to hurt in so many ways.......
And believe in the one reason why it will......
Because you are never alone in this journey.
You are supported, loved, and carried by the wings of angels
who know that in your element- you are powerful beyond belief.
