A friend asked me over the weekend why I choose to do such big adventures and have such crazy goals. On Sunday, my husband and I will be embarking on a five day bike ride across the state of Utah with five other teams of tandem bike riders, then finish it off with a marathon at the end of the week. In February, I plan to complete my second official 100 mile race getting me 2/3 of the way closer to being eligible to apply for Badwater, a 135 mile race through Death Valley in the middle of July.
My simple answer, “Because it scares me.”
What is it that scares you?
What’s your finish line?
