Never Too Late to Start

Climbing a 4,000-meter peak is an amazing experience. You are wasted when you arrive at the summit. And you still have to climb down! Do I have one more peak in me? I have until next summer to find out. If you'd like an idea of what's involved, watch this great video (click "Watch on YouTube")

Can you now see why I love mountaineering so much? 

Training for a climb like this takes a lot of discipline. Today's training was divided between a run at the High Bridge Trail and a workout at the gym. As you can see, the weather in Farmville was perfect for a run. 

I took my same old leisurely pace. 

Earlier at the gym, I completed my pull ups and then ran in place for some cardio. 


I may not be very good at what I do, but people tell me that I train with a teanager's enthusiasm. An old sports saying goes like this: "It's never too late to start, and it's always too soon to stop." 

These are words I live by. I hope you do too.
