This morning as I pulled my tire up the hill, I looked over at Natelle in the early morning light and said, “We’re cracked.” Natelle answered, “No, I am the truly cracked one.” It’s true…I had left a perfectly warm bed but I had a good reason. Natelle, on the other hand, left hers to support me. And for that I am very grateful. I’m also thankful to all who’ve ordered T-shirts, purchased toques, and sent donations. Each step of support gives me a deeper well of strength to draw on when the going gets tough.
I am very pleased to welcome the Newfoundland and Labrador Credit Union as a sponsor for Mount Vinson 2011. I enjoyed our partnership during Everest 2010 and I look forward to sharing the journey with their clients and employees.
I’m off to soak up some sun and some warmth in Florida for the next week while attending a conference. When I return, I’ll be all eyes forward to “Number Six.”
