Talking to some of the women afterwards I think one of the things that makes this so special is that most sports take you when you're in peak form and discard you when you're no longer there, and here I'd found a group of women welcomed as they were, celebrated for their talents, into a sport that would only make them better, stronger, faster. It was really life affirming. I left with a mixture of athletic awe at feats of strength, bravery and endurance as well as this wide-cast net of love and support.
