I felt it from the beginning. Morzine is a very special place for me. I did the Europeanchampionships there last year and I was so much looking forward to coming back to that place. ⛰
Now this dear I ended up with place 8 in Beast and place 3 in Super. Oh yes... and #trifecta X4 is completed now. Morzine turns out to be one of my #faves.
Next year, I want to so the #ultra there! Congrats to all Ultra finnishers you did an amazing job out there!! #newgoals

I title this run- Jess vs. the horseflies. They won. 10 miles around town in soupy weather but thankful to see so many other runners out there this morning with the same look of “ugh” on their face. We are all in this summer running thing together ♀️ But honestly I’m super thankful I decided to take this summer off of marathon training. For all my friends out there long running today- go kill it! Happy Saturday- I hope everyone is enjoying this long weekend! ❤️
Capitulating to the idea of death has never been an option for me. But when imminent mortality remains a possibility, the lens in which you view life through changes rather immediately, almost against your will. You suddenly appreciate everything you’ve ever taken for granted and feel guilty for having overlooked those things in the first place. You think about what you want most in this life and ponder if you will ever have them in your grasp. Your life flashes before you; both all the things you’ve done and all the things you’ve yet to do. You start asking yourself if you’ve done enough and been enough. You question if you’ve really given back or made any impact in this world. You feel as though you must take advantage of every present moment, regardless of how fleeting it may be, and savor it…relish in it. There’s an internal pressure to cling to any and every juncture or person that brings you even a modicum of joy because tomorrow is no longer a guarantee and your entire life can change in an instant. Which sounds cliché, but clichés exist for a reason and you don’t understand the gravity of them until you’re faced with obstacles in which they emerged from. The very framework that you have been hardwired to think for your entire life is challenged and flipped upside down. Everything, and I mean everything, that you thought you knew is now brought into question.
At least this has all been true for me. I have all the questions and none of the answers. I don’t have a clue as to why I’m being challenged in this way. I haven’t yet seen the reason or the purpose for this obstacle in my life. I’m not at all certain as to what this is teaching me, yet. But I am confident that the answers to my endless questions will reveal themselves in due time. The only thing that is unequivocal to me, is that I am being gifted a lifetime of perspective that I would have otherwise never received. There is a lot of power in perception. It’s something that is impossible to obstruct and can only be relinquished. There is nothing that can strip that from me.
