What a great attitude. I wish the best in your next attempt. You WILL do it!
I ran past a lady below Barr Camp who got turned back at A-Frame. I actually slowed down to talk to her...she too had a great attitude and said she'll get it next time. It was a lesson for her and her family (all from Missouri) that sometimes you don't always reach your goal, but you pick yourself back up and try again. She's coming back...and I just know she'll make it next time as well.
