I nonetheless have to lose one other 60ish kilos to be in my ideally suited vary. ) However I powered by means of it and we made it up in a really lengthy 9 hours.
And I cried, guys. I cried as a result of I by no means thought this could be doable. I cried as a result of the little voice in my head that at all times instructed me that I might at all times acquire the burden again is being crushed. I’m able to doing what I need to do. Nothing is inconceivable.
We additionally descended in about three hours with 12 hours of mountaineering whole. Each a part of me screamed in ache on the finish however after a pair Tylenol, I slept like a child.
All that is to say…preserve going! You are able to do arduous issues! You’ll be able to endure!
