Suck It Up Buttercup!!

Suck It Up buttercup, put your big girl panties on and cowgirl up! Yep that is what I told myself!!! I chose to do this hike and knew the pros and cons going in!  The injury is just a set back, but that is why I started early after all lol. Slow n steady all the way and I don’t care if I set the record for taking the longest amount of time to achieve it, hehe. A couple weeks before my dad passed away I told him I decided I was going to go back to the PCT and make it to Canada. I remember he touched my hand, smiled and said “that’s my girl”  he passed away February 8th, he was my biggest fan and cheerleader.  I carry him with me everyday, the hardest part is when I take pictures, he loved checking facebook everyday to see my stories and my pictures!!!  So this lady lit a fire under her ass,  pulled up her boot straps, slapped herself in the ass and declared “giddy up” let’s do this and do it right!!! Can’t stop a rolling rock, adapt to the situation handed to me and overcome it!!! The PCT is addicting, she’s beautiful, majestic and soothing but now and then I think she challenges me to see if I have what it takes to see it thru!! Challenge accepted!!! Hopefully in a week or so I’ll be showing her who’s boss! Yeah this girl has what it takes!!! Stayed tuned ya’ll 🙂 keep it wild.  Hugs to all of you!!!
