With one step I was airborne, the ground gave way beneath my feet and I was spinning as the horizon turned upside down. I hit the ground again, and again and again. With each impact I felt bones breaking, my skin ripping. I grasped for something, anything to stop my momentum, but then I was in the air again – spinning. I heard my own voice, floating above my head, calmly say “Hillary, this is it, you’re dying” I told myself to keep calm, breathe, it will all be over soon.
Believe your best athletic days are ahead of you.
