Much of the time it beats me down, leaves me hanging my head in despair. But then there are the moments that bring me to life.

Now I am on the ground and can hardly contain my excitement to get back on the wall. It’s a crazy rollercoaster and I owe my family and partners a great deal for encouraging me through it all.
