Lake Placid, New York
October 15, 2017
I get a lot of people asking for updates on what’s going on, so I decided to make a blog about my experiences. This process is far from what I expected and more at the same time. I’ll share my personal thoughts and also share how this bobsled stuff works. I’ll be posting pictures & videos and my experiences along the way!
If you haven’t seen my video I posted from my first ride, you should check it out on my videos page. Everyone always said Lake Placid was a rough ride but I was like ‘Ehh, God brought me to this, I’ll be fine.’ Well, God did bring me to it but it was rough and really scary and I could have violently puked right after, but held back because I had cameras in my face for the “Rookie Reactions."
I caught myself in tears a few times after that. I started letting the devil remind me that I hate rollercoasters and that I get vertigo easily. I didn’t enjoy the first trip…at all. The other two Rookies went twice down but I physically could only go once. At the same time I found myself doubting, I remembered that God opened this door, and there is no fighting that. I should make a list of all the things that only God could do to bring me to this point because it is truly His work. Thankfully, the rides have gotten better and I don’t get as dizzy, but I am not going to lie, every time I am about to slide - I am still terrified.
