LudoBites 007 has come to a close.
Some people didn't think I would last.
Sometimes I thought I wouldn't last.
I'm a stubborn girl.
I wouldn't give up.
Kinda like that marathon I completed back in 2004... I'd had food poisoning two nights prior... That was a miserable marathon... couldn't eat... could barely drink... took me 7h 14min to complete (some people can complete 2 marathons in that time)... but I didn't give up. After all that training & raising money for AIDS Marathon, I wasn't going to return to LA with any excuses... I finished it...practically doubled-over in extreme discomfort... but I did it.
What was I thinking as I crossed the finish line? If I can do this, I can do anything I set my mind to.
And I completed the 6-week run of LudoBites 007... It was an honor and a privilege to work under such an inspiring and accomplished chef, and with such a fabulous crew.
There was blood.
There was sweat.
And yes, there were tears.
As Chef likes to say - Never give up, and Just Make Happen.
Just like on the day of the marathon, I wasn't having my best personal day (a fever? why? thankfully there's Advil)... but I didn't want to miss the final day of the run. Which was tougher? Ludo Bites, by far.
... pictures and fun stories to follow.
