She went on: "And now, 10 days later, I just want to say, from the moment I went to the hospital, if it was really a marathon race, I felt like I was in that runner block and as soon as it was time There was this massive wind on my back in West Texas for the start of the race. I just pushed my way through. Even things that I was really afraid of felt like nothing more than a deep breath and something supernatural me through. "
