I'm thankful that you're so honest in your posts. Because I sometimes wonder if anyone else goes through the self-loathing that I do. Of course I know I'm not the only one, but doesn't it seem like everyone else has a reasonable amount of self-confidence? And I do too, sometimes. But I totally get that spiraling down feeling. So thanks for making me feel like I'm not so alone. :)


Boy, your words were scary-familiar to me. Eerily so. I spiraled today too, but not with the same trigger ... you'll never catch me running a mile, let alone running a Ragnar (BUT I admire from afar ...) The darkness does indeed pounce, and often. I appreciated your final words however - I've never considered my own demons to be something I needed; just something I have to live with. You've given me something to think about - thank you!


Oh, I am sorry!! You are totally going to rock that leg. We should meet up and do some mountain climbs together - my hill leg isn't as long as yours but I will still need the training. I am so sad we aren't sharing the hill again this year. I know you can do it though.

I am thinking of you!!


I get it. And I appreciate it. I’m a lover and fan of opposition. Not the experiencing of it, but the knowledge of it. It’s those lows that make the cheery days brighter. I’m also thankful I don’t stay in the lows because they hurt.

You are real and wonderful. I hope you feel the love again soon.
