Earlier this year, Xterra racer pro Jamie Whitmore underwent 9-1/2 hours of surgery to remove a malignant tumor from her spine. That was April. This is June. And while she's making progress, it sounds like its a slow, painful process. She updates her blog weekly, and reading it is humbling. It makes one realize how precious every moment, every hour, every day, every week, really truly is. Her blog is peppered with words of inspiration we all know and live by... "everything in life happens for a reason." Its all a test, and we're to take those tests and grow from them. Expand. Live more.
