New me!

Saturday, July 14, 2012

I have been walking at Runge Nature Center in Jefferson City, and I love it because they have so many different trails to walk on. Some of them I avoid during the work week because of the hills and I don't want to sweat too much. Well, today I thought I'd try the "soft trail," which is called that because it is mulch. I call it the "hard trail" because I knew it was far from flat and actually had some pretty steep hills. So, today I did the walk. There are benches along the trail, and in the past I would have needed them, but not lately. However, the hills are still tough. Well, today I was standing at the beginning of a bridge at the bottom of a steep hill and thought "NO WAY am I gonna make it up THAT hill!" The thought of walking up it was scary, but just then the song on my Ipod stated something about those who believe in him will not fall down..he will give you the power to go strong. So, I didn't walk up that hill....

I RAN!!!!

Doesn't look that steep in the picture...but it was...
