Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

I’m Back….

I took a momentary hiatus from the blogging world. I had written countless posts on my journey to ultra and for reasons I cannot disclose at this time…I stopped writing and without this outlet to share with my runner friends and non runner friends I detached myself from ultra running for nearly 2 1/2 years.

Some of you who know me now, new acquaintances and such would not recognize me even a year ago. Those of you who knew me even 8 years ago don’t exactly know what to make of me now. “Who is Des? I thought I knew her. Look at what she’s up to now! When did she take up running? Why is she running so much? She must be running from something.”

There is a well spring of countless questions I’m asked, but I won’t get into that here. Life is full of surprises…twists and turns that I never would have expected, but if certain things hadn’t happened in my life I probably never would have come back into ultra. It is my passion. Regardless of what others think and say to me, it has made me a better mother, a better person and a better friend.

This is my journey back to life and living it well.
