A Letter From Jude G. to David and CFSBK, About the Trans Rockies Run
Hi David and Team,
I wanted to send you a note expressing my gratitude for creating such a unique and supportive community at CFSBK.
A week ago I finished the three-day Trans Rockies run—a 58-mile race through the Colorado Rockies. The event was grueling—13 to 25 miles each day on varying terrain from exposed mountain top to dense woods. My lungs and heart worked hard climbing peaks over 12K and my quads were severely tested running down a mountainside for miles.
Before joining CFSBK, everything about the Trans Rockies Run would have seemed impossible—the miles, the altitude, the course, even camping out each evening. I would have researched the event, admired the athletes that participated and thought, ‘That looks amazing but I can’t do that.’ However, because of my experience at CFSBK, I decided to ignore my initial reaction and I signed up for what turned into an incredible adventure.
I am very grateful to be a part of the CFSBK community, I agree with all the prior praise expressed for CFSBK—it is far from just a venue to workout. Many thanks to the talented, supportive and good humored coaches, their encouragement got me through months of training and ultimately across the finish line. I couldn’t have done it without you.
P.S. I also convinced Amy M. that 58 miles through the Rocky Mountains was a good idea, so thanks again for creating a space that attracts awesome people and new friendships!
