I have 2 things: My son and his girlfriend went indoor rock climbing at the Philadelphia Rock Climbing gym in Oaks...they were easily certified to work the ropes for each other and received a 2-week free use of the gym - they are hooked!
This past weekend I did a great hike in the Wissahickon with my husband and daughter. Started behind springside school - took the trails over the finger bridge and all the way down and up to Toleration Rock - then the return hike: miles? 7.2 miles of ups/downs rocks and flats.
He has been doing little 2-3 hour hikes to get in shape for an 11 day backpacking trip to the Philmont reservation (New Mexico) with the Boy Scouts this summer -
Other hikes: Mr. Joy in Valley Forge National Park and another Fairmount Park hike along the trails. I've done 2 now and its fun.
Sore today from the 7 miler on Saturday - hey I think I even see some muscle tone on my thighs......
Remember: Whenever you point a finger, there are 3 more pointing back at yourself. Take responsibility and lead by example.
