Added this as a Team Huddle this morning. This weekend we had a Family Support Group Picnic for our unit. It was a great event with something new for me--a rock wall! I've always had somewhat of a fear of heights and never thought I'd voluntarily try this sport, but I figured that as one of the Army Values is Courage that I needed to suck it up and give it a try. Being the overachiever that I am, and feeling like I was pretty fit these days, I decided to try the "difficult" side--of course I fell off twice and didn't make it to the top. I waited a while and tried the "intermediate" side and made it up no problem! What a rush! Loved it and after the 1SG shimmied up the difficult side like a monkey it was on! I got back in line and did the hard side and made it :) Now I'm ready to go to the rock climbing gym in town and do it again!
