I woke up feeling extremely grateful (and a little sore) this morning. I have never truly felt stronger mentally or physically. Thank you for absolutely the best, most soul-stirring event I have ever participated in. There is something very unique and special about the group of people the event brought together. Definitely made a difference in my life.

Just wanted to give you a tremendous high five and a pat on the back for putting on a phenomenal event this weekend. It was over-the-top incredibly well run and a badass event that slayed us all.

I’m so elated (the word doesn’t do the emotion justice) that I finished. I don’t see myself as a “real athlete” and this weekend might have changed my perception ;-). It was life changing for me and I hope I stay on this high for a very very long time. I feel so accomplished and proud. Thank you for what you did to create an event that allowed me to feel this way.

I was BLOWN away by the quality of the event, and the people helping to coordinate it all.

The attitudes of everyone helping to make it all work were incredible, uplifting and full of great energy that made a big difference to the athletes involved.

Every detail that you all thought of (from the branding wall to the spray paint wall, the tents, the food, etc)… was just amazing.

You are amazing.  Your team is amazing. The entire 29029 event and experience was amazing. Well done.
You and your team’s positive attitude made a HUGE difference in the experience of 29029.   A genuine smile and a few words of encouragement can make that next excruciating step just a bit more manageable.  I want to personally thank you for 29029.  This was my re-entry to endurance athletics after a five-year pause (young family and launched our company).  This was the first time our children got to see their Dad set a goal, suffer through the process and complete the goal.  This is such a powerful life lesson and one that is hard to replicate.

It was a gift spending time around so many kind and positive people. With out a doubt the most upbeat, positive, and well organized event I’ve ever been to. Also, thanks for the awesome boost of energy you gave us all after each climb. It did not go unnoticed and was much needed. That was a serious challenge, but a blast to climb.
