I got back from a meeting at work and was clearing out my “promotions” folder on my gmail… since I had about 10 junky emails I just quickly deleted them all and then went, “wait a minute, did I see Leadville?” as I knew lottery results were today and was oh so hoping I wouldn’t get in. So to my trash folder I went, where I was greeted with this…
I almost puked.
I immediately messaged my coach, who responded with a bunch of symbols that I can only assumed symbolized a swear word.
I said plenty of swear words.
It’s going to be an interesting summer! There’s people who try year after year to get into the Leadville Trail 100 and never do. I randomly enter the lottery on badly thought out decision, and get in. Just like that! I’m coming to terms with it, and accepting the reality. It has been a bucket list item of mine, and I almost entered in 2013 – which I’m so happy I didn’t as I wasn’t in a good of position as I am now back then, both physically and mentally. So it’ll be a tick off the bucket list to say the least! I’m beginning to look forward to the challenge… there’s no turning back, so might as well embrace it! 🙂
