A great and heartwarming story. I'm impressed with those who can finish
such a race; and I admire those that train and are willing to start such a race
Amazing article, maybe your best I've read! Congratulations, I found
myself getting a wee bit teary eyed as I read your finish!
Amy Donaldson is a treasure. Thank you for so eloquently sharing your
vulnerability, insights and wisdom.
Amy, thank you for describing what we were all feeling that day. You captured
the heart and soul of that experience. Ruthie, Bonnie and I were honored to
share the hardest part of the Squaw Peak 50 Mile course with you! Step, by
painful step, we made it together up that monster's back (Bozung Hill) and
faced our fears head on and beat the demon! Congratulations on finishing what
you started on a journey that has lasted years!! Yes, gratitute in all things!!
Wow - incredible article. I ran the SP 50 on Saturday, and feel very similar,
even though it was my first time. What an incredible physical challenge. My knee
blew out at the top of Bozung Hill and hobbling to the finish line was among the
most difficult things I've ever done, both mentally and physically.
Congrats on your finish!
This was a fun entertaining and very human article. Amy thanks for writing this
very real and poignant story.
Congratulations! Well done. I've done one 50 miler, and it's the last
I'll do. I'm glad I finished, but I was ready to quit at 26 miles.
Knowing my family was at the end of the course powered me through. I'm glad
you were able to conquer this race, what a great feeling to accomplish a BHAG
like this race!
50 miles? Running 50 miles up hill? How? Seems impossible. I climb 14ers (14000+
peaks in Colorado and California) and I can say that just climbing those peaks
is brutal enough -- but I love it! I have to say congrat's to Amy for doing
this . I couldn't run even half way. Amazing feat!
Nice job! Not just on the run but on this piece. Very well written.
That's the best piece you've ever written. Well done!
Very well done Amy Donaldson. There are many days I struggle just to walk a
mile and you conquered your demons and completed the Squaw Peak 50. This is a
very well written article on enduring to the end. I wish you continued success
at whatever life gives you.
Well done, Amy. Your next challenge: The Bear 100 in 2019. Register early!
