2020 Post Oak Challenge (25km)
This year's Post Oak Challenge was indeed a challenge. Severe intestinal cramps the entire night before the
race relegated me to dropping back to the 25 km distance (rather than the 50 km) that was originally planned.
Wet days prior to the race made for very wet & muddy running. Plenty of roots, rocks & hills! There were some
GREAT views of the countryside and some of downtown Tulsa, but I had my work cut out for me as I plodded
through the course.
At the last Aid Station, I was ready to throw in the towel. THANK YOU Lynna for talking me into continuing on. All
I had was to climb the Hill From Hell, plod through more roots, rocks & hills, make it through the Heaven's Gate to
make it to the finish line.
I was soooo ready to be finished. This was a tough race for me.
One thing that I do look forward to in every one of my races, is
the wonderful conversations that I have with Our Lord. As I spend
a lot of time alone, it is in the quietness that I can hear Him.
Whatever suffering that I had during the race, is always offered
up for the suffering souls in Purgatory. Hopefully offering this will
relieve some of their suffering & bring them sooner to the
Beatific Vision that we all long for.
Speaking of grand visions, my vision of the finish line was indeed
a welcome site.
Blessings to you until next time;
