The 9 th of december with our team-mates, the Thule Adventure Team be world champions in 170h in Costa Rica again for the 2nd time. You have to know that it’s the first time in the history of ARWS…
After a tuff race like that, first you need take time to recovery and after realize and enjoy that you did it. This year we were lucky with Jacky because we have decided to share this time with our families in Costa Rica together. So, it was like when you are kids. I say that because after adventure race, all your habits falled like you are really young, you think just to sleep, eat, sleep, eat …and you are so tired or peharp lazy to want to do something else. And our parents after to be scared, stressed and excited during 170h, they are so proud and take care of us.
Anyway, for us it was a really great time and we have shared many things together…and at this time you feel that you are at the top of the big mountain!!!
But few days after, in 2 sec, we were under the rocks of this huge cliff.
Yes, the life is strange and not easy everyday even if we think that it’s unfair because this true is different in depends the person.
So, not really the time to enjoy our title…and i learnt that my dad is passed away…when you received the call, even if i was prepared because since long time my dad had a cancer, you are never really prepared for that!!! Imagine, the week before you spent Christmas together and when everybody are so exciting to celebrate the New Year, you had to organize your mind and try to really understand what it means…your dad is died.
Like i told you before, at this time it was the bottom of the mountain. A lot of the airports were closed because of the climate problems and so, we could ridge France 8 days after…and everybody waited me because i was his only daughter…
With Jacky, like in adventure race, we have done everything step by step. Try to control our emotions and keep going. All the time we were thinking, we know what we need to do and we can do that…because we did it!!!
So it’s crazy to think that in only one month, your body can be so high and also so low. Now it’s a new life for me
And when you are luckye because you have the opportunity to start a new life, you have 2 choices, keep your previous one or decide to do better…i’m a adventure racer and a competitor so i have decided to do better!!!
Now, i’m climbing the Teide in Canary Island…and i’m feeling soon at the Top of my Mountain
so the conclusion, we are World champions, we are also 1rst at the World Cup ranking, i’m exciting about my new life and i’m ready to climb all the mountains in the world!!!
see you soon and have a nice day
