I was looking back at some old posts and saw my post from June 6, 2014 where I made to the top of the 200 foot butte without stopping. I remember that day well. I remember that I cried when I got to the top. I remember how hard it was and how my son cheered me on to not stop, that we were almost to the top and to keep going. That was an emotional day.
Well, I’ve come a long way in 4 short months…I can now climb up that same butte, three times, back to back to back without stopping and we even run up the last 30 yards to the top! Talk about a sense of accomplishment. We timed ourselves once and it takes between 5 minutes and 6 minutes to do the climb – that doesn’t sound like a lot until you’re about two minutes into and your lungs are burning, your legs are tired and you are gasping for breath. It’s not easy. It’s physically and mentally hard…but the reward at the top, is so worth it!
