My family helped me finish my first 50K

As I woke up early Saturday morning, my nerves getting the best of me, I got myself ready for my second attempt at a 50K (31.06 miles) trail race.

Love more, fight less

While growing up, my parents never fought in front of us kids. If they were mad at each other, we usually didn't know it, it was something they discussed behind closed doors or not at all.
