I had the most amazing, life changing, cathartic experience fan girling and pacing at #westernstates. I learned so much about ultra running and the human spirit there. Both of my badass friends (Ron and Marie) finished the race that took down some of the best. I ran into the man who originally introduced me to ultra running and broke my heart. I got to meet my ultra running crush and a few other ultra running super stars. Most importantly I reaffirmed that this is something I want to experience for my self so so much and that it is possible.
