Another Loco Relay with the Butte Kickers in the books! This was my 5th Loco relay with my first being the Loco 200 in September, 2014, a few months after I moved to Northern California. It was tough this year with the smoky air and so much dust on the dirt roads. Our team dug deep, tag teaming the hottest leg. We did great, finishing just over 12 hours. I got my yearly PCT 1350 miles to Canada photo on top of Humboldt Summit. This years race theme was pirates and the the aid stations stepped up to the theme and were amazing, provided much needed support to the runners. #buttekickers#littlelocorelay#lassennationalforest#pct#run#lotsofmiles#stillhavedirtinmynose#kickingbutte
And that's a wrap. I was hoping to have some insightful stuff to spout about but no, I'm here and I'm at a loss for words. It's been a trip, highs and lows and everything inbetween. It's also been an honour walking alongside and talking to people from all corners of this globe whilst taking in the glorious natural scenery this fantastic country has to offer.
Thank you to everyone for your support, both for myself and for @mindcharity
I'm sure I've got a lot more to say but for now I'm going to chill. Peace.
Views from the mobile office. One of the things I enjoy about my new job is being able to do home visits with our new mamas and babies. I’m also able to take in the gorgeous surrounding we have here in #wnc . It also struck me how dedicated this mama was to birthing outside of the hospital as I drove over an hour to check in with her and her new babe. She made this trip over and through the mountains for each and every prenatal visit. She envisioned her birth experience and made it happen. It made my heart happy realizing that I was able to stand witness to her dedication while she fiercely brought her little one into the world. *Also of note, good windshield wipers make all the difference! And I need to get new tires! #birthworker#strongmamas#birthcenterbirth#dedicated#laboranddelivery#homevisitnurse#lotsofmiles#subaru#crosstrek#dollhouseavl
