After being devastated by realizing I am falling out of shape. And thinking of quitting, and my feelings being everywhere. I got home yesterday to a message from a friend that it looks like I am going to be invited (haven't gotten the official invitation yet) to the World Trophy 50K in Gibraltar. I knew I had qualified for it but thought too many foreigners had qualified. The only thing is I am a D level athlete so I am not sure how much of my flight gets paid for. My accomodations are paid for but it's the flight that I don't know if I will be able to pay for. They might pay for some of it. SO if I had a job this wouldn't be a problem. But without a job I am not sure this will be possible but this will change everything. My whole training plan. I will have to get faster. I have been training for like 8 min/miles and I need to be training for 7min/miles. I have got to get this invitation and get things figured out. I have a dream... A once in a lifetime opportunity event and might not be able to go because of money. (only 4 American women have qualified for it)
