Mission.... Incomplete
11-Mar-2013 07:38:26 AM [(GMT-06:00) Central Time(US & Canada)]

I refuse to say failed. Granted the goal of coming home this week with a finisher’s medal in hand did not happen but this whole trip was a huge huge learning experience that will allow me to come back next better prepared. While altitude sickness and heat where the primary things I battled with on stage one, I have learned a great deal from the other competitors concerning gear and some other types of training to better prepare. In spite not getting my finisher’s medal, the past week was phenomenal; from the volunteers and all they do to make this event run smoothly to the competitors helping others from duck taping shoes to needed encouragement, etc. It is hard to put into words and I am still in awe. So now I am back home in civilization and making my plans for next year. I have a score to settle with Atacama =)
