A while back I posted about my client and good friend Lysa. Lysa is such an inspiration to everyone she meets. At the time, I informed you that she’d soon be completing a 50 mile hike in San Diego, that was organized by the Project Athena Foundation. Project Athena was established to encourage women who’ve overcome medical setbacks to complete the journey of a lifetime and to prove to others, and themselves, just how strong of a person they can be!
Well, it’s now officially the end of May and I couldn’t be prouder to report that Lysa rocked her 50 mile hike! After 2 days, and many hours, Lysa, along with many others, celebrated their huge accomplishment on the shoreline in San Diego.
Lysa came back from her “trip” with many stories and even said that she felt good throughout the entire hike. Originally, she may have been a little nervous about it, 50 miles is a long way to hike in just 2 days, but I knew she was prepared.
Here are some more pictures from Lysa’s hike:
Lysa is already thinking about her next hike through the Project Athena Foundation, and is strongly considering tackling the Grand Canyon. Like I said before, she’s truly an inspiration.
So, if you know of any strong willed women, like Lysa, who have overcome any kind of medical setbacks, I would encourage them to look into Project Athena. Not only is it a great way to stay healthy but it’s also a wonderful way to meet other amazing men and women.
