I climbed a hill

Sunday, May 12, 2013

So one of the first things that I did when I moved to Seattle, was to visit my friend who lived on Capital Hill. There are a lot of hills in Seattle, but this one is a doozy. Of course, as luck would have it, she lives at the top of said hill.

Well see the thing is, I didn't have my car at this point. So, my little jaunt to the top of the hill started at the bus stop at the bottom of the hill. Needless to say, I was exhausted, out of breath and sweaty, by the time I reached the top. (One of my goals is to walk up the hill on my way to work without getting out of breath)

Today, she and I walked down to Pike's Place Market then, back up the dreaded hill. We've done this before, but we haven't done it since I've started my SP journey. So, I made a comment, "Did you notice I'm keeping up with you". She's a very fast walker and I've had to tell her to slow down before. NOT TODAY! I held my own I kept up and I walked up that hill.

In total today, I've walked 16,000 steps. emoticon That's the most to date!!! I think I conquered a bigger hill then Cap Hill. Think I showed myself what kind of things I can accomplish. Now... I need to find a mountain. I think Mt. St. Helen's sounds good.
