Table Rock is a Boise landmark that everyone has noticed, occasionally people wonder about, and I love to hike. It was one of the first things I did when I decided several years ago to be an active person. It has always been a challenge and it has always been a beacon of what I could do.
I hiked it first with my friend Nadine who introduced me to SP, we did not make it to the top the first attempt but finally I could make it all the way up. About 4 miles round trip.
I have hiked it with my 20 something daughter. Which was funny and sad, funny because when we got to the top she indignantly put her hands on her hips and frowned saying, "Wait! there is a road up here?" It was also sad because she mentioned that it was great that we were doing this together and wished that we could have done stuff like this when she was a kid. . . . Sorry Baby . . .
I have hiked it with my SP friend Molly from MN who was in Boise for work. It was a blast to meet an on line friend in real life. Hopefully someday we will hike this hill together again.
I have hiked it with my sister and her 3 girls, it was summer, it was raining, I had to stop a lot, but we made it to the top.
TODAY I started my 2012 fitness challenge
The goal is to hike Table Rock 100 times this year
That means every Saturday with SP friends Rhoni and Jenn and perhaps other FB friends from church or friends from school
And at least once a week by myself
which will be truly a feat of self discipline and commitment
