Monadnock Trails Week & apprehension

Friday, July 12, 2013


Today starts a week of concentrated trail work. I'm both excited and apprehensive about this new experience. I want to work hard and help, but I don't want to overdo it.
Years ago, I hurt my back in a minor car accident. It has taken me years to work myself back to a healthy back. Today I will pick up the rake and shovel. When I feel stress, I'll pick up the camera and note pad and write for them.
Maybe I can't do everything, but I can show up and do something.

Monadnock is calling, and I must go!

    just being out there is support for the team & so healthy for you.

Take care & do not overdo with your back.

But just take a deep breathe of clean air & celebrate the beauty around you!

Have a great weekend!!

    Enjoy it! Sound like you have a good plan to take it easy on your back. Take breaks when you need them and enjoy what you are doing but at the same time take care of yourself. You are awesome!
