I recently returned from Run Camp: The Desert. 2 days of running in some of the world's worst conditions. The elements: 96 degrees, 270+ feet below sea level, dry and unforgiving. The conditions: no showers, no bathrooms, dehydrated food, camping with poisonous mammals and insects. The experience was so intense and surreal that I am still processing it. I will be blogging about it on Harlem Run and Women's Running in more detail, but I wanted to leave a short reflection here I wrote directly after completing the experience.
Exhausted. But realizing I have to keep pushing my limits. I never imagined I would live this life. I'm so honored and excited for where life has taken me. But I want more. As painful and awful as it was at points -- Run Camp made me feel alive. I can't wait for what's next.
