I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
Immortality and UltrAspireLiza
You know, looking back
I never thought I’d be considered an elite anything. (Yes, that’s a bandana I’m wearing — among other things. You’ll have to leave a comment for the full story.)
Yeah, no elite glimmers here either. (An oldie but a goodie.)
But more than that, I certainly had no inking I might ever be immortal. And yet, here I am, 40 years-old, living in South Texas, a mother of a four year-old, — both elite and immortal. Well, an Elite Immortal for UltrAspire this year anyway.
OK, so before you leave a comment about how I might try throwing myself off of something to test this immortality, I want to say that I’m really excited to be part of the UltrAspire gear testing team. The quality of their gear is exceptional. The attention to detail is exceptional. The choice of “elite immortal” as an appelation… Well, look
it’s not likely to go to my head. (Yes, that is a bottle of Sriracha. Yes, my pack is just shorter than I am. Yes, you will have to leave a comment for this one also.)
So anyway, I just want to let you all know that I’ll be doing my best to test the UltrAspire gear in the summer heat of Texas as I prep for Western States and Leadville and crewing a friend at Badwater. And I’ll take it along on a mountaineering course I’ll work for NOLS in September. And smaller ladies, your voice will be heard!
And now it’s time to celebrate Leap Day.
