This week Deb has asked us to share our favourite quotes. I thought I would share a quote that has been meaningful to me this week:
Yesterday (Saturday 11th May) I participated in the first True Grit in Adelaide (it was actually at Caudo Vineyard in Cadell) - 3 hours from my house! I had a 5am start to get there for our 10.35am run off time. I was in a group of 8. Most of them were very fit! I managed to stay with the group for about half the course and then was on my own for a bit, and then was with another member from our team for the last bit.
I climbed up ropes, jumped over logs, ran over fire, climbed up hills, ran (and walked) up and down sand hills and through vineyards, climbed across monkey bars, crawled under nets and barbed wire, walked through an ice bath, carried a log, waded through mud up to my waist and under tunnels in the mud and went down a huge slide into the river, plus many more obstacles. It was a 12km course with 32 obstacles.
Check out the course here!
I feel a little disappointed that I didn't keep up with the rest of the team, my mind told me I couldn't run anymore - but I'm proud of myself for completing every obstacle. It took me around 3 hours all up and my knees are now bruised and my arms sore but I did it!!
This is the team after the event (and a wash down). We all earned T-shirts for finishing! Still smiling!
