Here we are in Costa Rica in front of the Arenal Volcano.
I learned that Costa Ricans say Pura Vida a lot, which literally means "pure life." They use the phrase to express a philosophy of strong community, perseverance, resilience in overcoming difficulties with good spirits, enjoying life, and celebrating good fortune of magnitudes small and large alike. It totally made me think about the 3-day. I love it!
Although I didn't go on any training walks while I was touring this beautiful country, I did get lots of exercise zip lining, hiking and rappelling. Talk about living life!

We met an older couple who are retired and spend a lot of time traveling the world. We talked to them about their adventures and I thought they were really inspiring. Their advice was to go big or go home. And it’s so true. You only get so many opportunities, so live big, be bold and take the path less traveled—you never know what you might find.
