Today’s mantra, this journey has already taught me so much and this quote sums it up. Make sure where ever you go, you tell your story along the way.
I was able to tell my story to some construction workers today that were fixing Route 66. They yelled and asked what we were doing running out here. So we stopped running and I told him why…it’s amazing to see people’s faces when you say “I’m running 204 miles to Las Vegas to bring awareness to Multiple Sclerosis (MS).”
The construction worker looked at us and said well you best be on your way…and offered me a safety vest he had in his truck. (I did not accept..too warm out).
It’s moments like that, that make you remember your why. After that conversation the rest of the day went much better.
I finished up 28.29 miles today with a total of 56.5 over the last two days. Tomorrow and Thursday will be tougher with over 3,000 ft in elevation climb! But I will keep pushing forward to support those who can’t!
I did have running buddy Steve De La Cruz a local ultra runner. Coolest guy ever and it made the miles fly by!
Stay tuned as Tabetha will be filing regular updates about her 204-mile journey. If you want to help support MS click HERE
