I did it, i climbed a rock wall
Tuesday, February 07, 2012
So some may think ahh climbing a rock wall is nothing. Well when you factor in fear of heights and factor in i'm also over 200 lbs and the fact i don't have much upper or lower body strength - well this is a big deal
Our girl scout troop decided that the girls should get the experience of rock climbing. I asked if adults could do it too and they checked and said yes. So both myself and my hubby went. For him he was all over the walls, but for me I started having little mini panic attacks, but i took deep breaths and started the climb up. The first try I got about 1/2 way up and the 2nd try i got 3/4 the way up. I just didn't have it in me to try again.
Now i would love to do this again when i'm a little lighter and and little stronger. It was very impowering experience. I'm still afraid of heights, but I'd do it again.
