My sister has been asking me to go walk at Mount Belleview with her. But I've been avoiding it because of that little word "mount". It's not a big mountain, but with all the extra weight I'm carrying, it's a challenge. Just last March, I could barely walk to the neighbor's house near my parents' house, just a few hundred feet away. And that nutty sister of mine wants me to climb a small mountain?!
Well, today she persuaded me to try it. It was pretty slow going.
I remember a couple years ago when Mount Bellevue had become one of our *routine* walks, barely challenging at all. How could I let myself lose so much hard-earned ground as far as my health and fitness are concerned?
This is a little side path we've never taken. We'd like to go see where it goes.
I ended my day with a lovely visit at my parents. I'm blessed to still have both my parents who are in their mid eighties. My sister (walking buddy) lives with them, which is why they've been able to stay in their own home until now.
