In the summer of 2004, I was on The Numbers. I hit my head in Number 5 and busted a carbon fiber helmet. I rolled up, dazed, and deciede to end my run. My buddy finished the run with some people we met while deciding what to do and then we ran shuttle with them. Amanda Peterson was one of the people we met that day.
Amanda and I became very good friends after that. Although we faded apart when she moved away fom Colorado, she will always be one of the closest riends I have ever had. If I had not hit my head that day, I would have never met her.
Last night, I wen on to Facebook to say hi and I found out that the has passed away. She was rock climbing near her home in Cody, WY.
Amanda loved the river, the mountains and the ocean.
