Hiking

Well…another weekend and out on Saturday! Hiking….climbing…..crawling over downed trees…..trudging up and down. My body is tired….legs definitely were burning at times!

Still surreal…..I am out with my guys……I am doing what I so love to do! Yes….my body is not in the best shape…….however, I am out there! It is so awesome! To really be able to push myself…to feel my muscles being challenged…..finally able to test my body….to work it.

I have struggled so much these past years…..now I truly feel poised to move ahead……to regain strength and agility. To walk, hike as much as possible……use my elliptical on off days….those evenings that are not filled with commitments.

These struggles parallel life. We struggle….we push….we feel frustrated…..we persevere.

Our health struggles grant us a better appreciation for those around us….for our loved ones…our friends….for the blessings that are presented in a “normal” day.

For now….it is still like a dream……I can feel the tiredness….feel the sore muscles in my body……yet, I am amazed…..it is me….it is really me…..I am experiencing what I had hoped for….that my body would really allow me to return to “normal”!
