Pride goes before the fall. Fortunately the fall today was only metaphorical and not physical. I am somewhere in France for a training weekend for The Raid. I thought I was in OK shape. The reality is very different.

I finally found something I loathe more than pushups.

I despise mountains. They are evil and should all be razed to the ground.

More info later when I am back home; it is too hard to blog on my phone.

Of course, tomorrow we do rock climbing, there is a sheer face involved. So I still have an opportunity to make my fall a literal one.

    Awesome experience, nevertheless! I bet you handled those mountains when it mattered!

    Oh honey, don't even think such a thing!

I love mountains but then I'm a leisurely hiker kind of gal (even if I am wearing a weighted vest or back pack) and not a "I will conquer you" kind of gal.

Me and mountains co-exist in peace.

Good luck and take care of yourself. There is NO shame is saying "Thanks, but no thanks" to an activity....

XOXO

    There's a good reason my user name is HillSlug: I am not a fan of hills. I will get to the top eventually, but it may take me a week.
