November 2-3 2018 dmc Team members Janet Kramschuster and Carrie Veurink and their KAIA teammates took on the Ragnar Napa Vallley. It's a relay run from SF to Napa which is just short of 200 miles. Twelve team members run three legs each all day and night to finish. Congratulations ladies on this amazing accomplishment. #KAIAfit Here are Janet's own words describing this accomplishment.
" Jumping on the bandwagon. Lessons learned in the last 48 hours (and some that were re-enforced).
Look up at the stars when you have a chance. Don’t forget they are there. When you’re running in darkness in the wee hours, they will help remind you of the beauty that exists in this world, and that you are part of something way bigger than yourself.
At 41 years of age, it feels fantastic to have an article of clothing with your name and number on it. It reminds you that you were young once, and that you still have that spirit somewhere deep within you.
Carry a bright flashlight in the dark. And if you think you are lost in the woods running alone in the pitch black, you probably are. You’ll be fine. You are braver than you think. Really.
Love your spouse hard and say “thanks for letting me do the stuff I love and that’s important to me”. Remember, this is their journey too.
Age is just a number. This race is proof. Nothing will make you feel more inspired than watching your 72 year old teammate running along the highway in the dark of night. Nothing.
Reach out and chat with strangers. You have more in common than you think. And you just might help each other out (particularly when you’re lost).
Everyone is dealing with hard stuff. Everyone. Share your hard. Let them share theirs. All of a sudden the hard will become that much easier. The best happens when you embrace the hard, together.
Silence and strength are not related. Sometimes the most silent display the greatest strength.
Be honest, be vulnerable, and don’t forget to laugh at yourself. People will love you for being real and being you, and you’ll feel the love back, tenfold.
If you’re angry at yourself, or your body, for defying what you expected or planned it to do, that’s okay. It’s part of the journey and there’s an intentional lesson in there for you to learn and grow from. Always.
A port-a-potty is not so bad when there are no alternatives.
When you’re at the brink of crazy-going to loose it-exhausted, shout it calmly to the world (or your teammates). They’ll have your back.
Humor conquers all.
People care. They care way more than you think or you ever would have predicted. You never know who is watching and how they’ll respond. They will impact you in such great ways when you’re least expecting it.
Nothing beats the end of a long journey than a bear hug, a hot tub, a raging fire, a sunset, and the best people on the planet." ... See more
